Ghostbusters: The Video Game Gets the Remastered Treatment Later This Year

As rumored, the 2009 Ghostbusters game is getting a Remaster to help celebrate the original film’s 35th anniversary. Come inside to see the updated trailer!

Ghostbusters: The Video Game launched back on the PS3 and Xbox 360 (we won’t discuss the Wii version that changed things drastically) and was pretty impressive. Bringing in the original cast members to the voice the all new story, fans fell in love with it. If you missed out on it 10 years ago, you’ll get the chance to play it later this year in HD on the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch!

Saber Interactive has announced Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered, an HD re-release of the acclaimed action-adventure game featuring the original cast of Columbia Pictures’ classic films. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered delivers a unique story from Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis that captures the supernatural comedic fun and fright fans love from the franchise, which celebrates the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters this year.

As the new rookie on the Ghostbusters crew, you’ll team up with your favorite characters from the films, reunited by the voices of Aykroyd, Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson as Stantz, Spengler, Venkman and Zeddemore, alongside Annie Potts, Brian Doyle-Murray, William Atherton and Max von Sydow. Manhattan is overrun once more by ghosts, demons and other paranormal creatures unleashed by a mysterious force, and only the Ghostbusters can drive this evil back to whatever dimension it crawled from and save the Big Apple.

Hunt, fight and trap a variety of new and familiar ghouls and phantasms, all remastered in HD resolution. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered equips you with cool gadgets and upgradeable weapons to play with in huge boss fights and destructible environments. Scan and analyze targets with the P.K.E. Meter and Paragoggles, then strap on your Proton Pack to wear ghosts down with the blast stream before wrangling them with the capture stream.

While there’s no release date yet, but it IS coming this year. I missed out on this when it initially launched, so I’m excited to be able to check it out on the Switch when it arrives.
