Saber Interactive, the developer behind the upcoming Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered, has dropped a new trailer for the game as pre-orders go live on Switch and other consoles. The HD remaster of Terminal Reality's ten-year-old game (which reunited most of the original cast) is getting a rerelease on 4th October.
The gameplay shown in the trailer is unremarkable - don't get us wrong, the HD footage looks lovely, but it appears to be very much the same game we played and enjoyed back in 2009. However, the main attraction here is Dr. Raymond Stanz himself! Actor, writer and comedian Dan Aykroyd puts in an appearance as the heart of the Ghostbusters standing beside their trusty vehicle, Ecto-1.
Aykroyd and writer/director Harold Ramis (who played Egon and sadly passed away in 2014) were the writing team behind the original films and they both returned to pen this game, which was positioned very much as the 'Ghostbusters 3' that fans never got to see. Of course, Aykroyd is also returning for the actual Ghostbusters 3, the second sequel currently in production with the catchy working title Ghostbusters 2020. No prizes for guessing when that's scheduled to hit cinema screens.
That's it. No new footage, no megatons; we're just overjoyed to see Ray Stanz himself back on screen, even if he's flogging a game we played a decade ago. Heck, who are we kidding? It was a pleasant surprise back then and we'll be buying it again on Switch.
Will you be bustin' spooks, spectres or ghosts on Switch come 4th October? Let us know if you're getting the feels for this remaster and/or next year's return below...
