Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remaster Release Date, Trailer, and Everything Else We Know


Ghostbusters: The Video Game, which initially launched in 2009, is officially getting a remaster.This remaster is being developed by Saber Interactive (developers of World War Z). Terminal Reality developed the original version of the game, which was released on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Red Fly Studio worked on a concurrent release for PS2, Wii, and PSP, while Zen Studios handled the Nintendo DS version of the game. 

For those of you who never played it, Ghostbusters The Video Game featured voice acting from Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson, while Akroyd and Ramis helped write the story. Due to the involvement of the film’s original cast, the game was seen as quite the gem for Ghostbusters fans who considered it to be as close as they would ever get to experiencing Ghostbusters 3. Now that Harold Ramis has passed away, the game’s legacy as such has only grown stronger.

If we’re being honest, the game itself is probably best played by hardcore franchise fans who always wanted to see the original cast together again. It’s not a bad game by any means (the story is pretty good and multiplayer is always a great time), but it was hardly a game-changing action title. This remaster will likely smoothe a few rough edges, but we imagine much of the original experience will remain in-tact.
