Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is coming this year

2009's Ghostbusters: The Video Game is getting a remake. A listing appeared earlier in the month on the Taiwanese Game Software Rating website, and today it was announced along with a reveal trailer, which you can watch above. 

World War Z studio Saber Interactive is developing the remake, though beyond remastering it for modern resolutions, the extent of the changes haven't been revealed. 

It boasted a great voice cast, with Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson reprising their roles, and while I've completely forgotten the story, written by Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, I do remember it at least feeling like an authentic Ghostbusters romp. 

The proton pack was the most memorable thing about the original, and I wouldn't mind messing up fancy hotels and other historic New York buildings with my ghostbusting death ray again. 

On PC, it looks like it's only appearing on the Epic Games Store, at least for now.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
