Those of a certain age will no doubt shudder when thinking about Ghostbusters videogames. The original titles back in the mid 80s / early 90s were confusing, difficult and generally not really worth the hassle, apart from 1990's imaginatively-named Ghostbusters on the Sega Mega Drive. Fast forward to 2009, and Ghostbusters: The Video Game surprised us all - with full voice acting from the original 'Busters cast, and input from Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis on the scripting side of things, it was actually very good indeed. But despite a fairly warm reception from fans and critics alike, word didn't seem to spread too far and the game pretty much slipped into the realms of "cult classic" territory.
The folks at Saber Interactive have announced Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is set to be released later this year, allowing those who missed out at the time - or indeed anyone who just fancies having some supernatural current-gen willies putting up them - to reunite with the Ghostbusters crew and save Manhattan from some good old mysterious forces.
With the entire original game being cleaned and polished from the ground up, it's certainly one of our most anticipated re-releases of the year. Wonder if they've had chance to squeeze in a part for Sigourney Weaver? Poor Dana missed out on the original, due to taking too long to make up her mind about whether or not she wanted to take part - by the time she said yes, the developers said no... It sure would be nice to finally add her to the cast though. Either way, check out the new trailer below, and keep an eye out for futher news in the coming months!
