A couple weeks ago, there were rumblings that Ghostbusters: The Video Game from 2009 would be getting a remastered re-released sometime this year in honor of the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters, the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters II, and the 10th anniversary of the game itself. Now that’s been confirmed with a full announcement trailer, showing off the revamped graphics that will now be in high-resolution. See how the Ghostbusters video game remastered looks below.

Back in 2009, the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters was celebrated in a big way with the release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. At the time, the video game was a big deal because Atari was able to round up all of the original Ghostbusters cast members to reprise their roles. Basically, it was the only way we were getting a Ghostbusters 3.
Ultimately, the game wasn’t exactly a home run since the story was somewhat mediocre and the game’s ending didn’t really deliver anything all that thrilling. But for Ghostbusters fans, with all the wisecracking from almost all the movie’s original cast and the ability to become one of the Ghostbusters in a video game for the then-current generation of video games was still pretty cool. But now fans may have an opportunity to give it another chance since it would appear that a remastered re-release of the game is coming soon. Read More »
Whether or not you’re going to see the reboot of Ghostbusters, you might be interested in seeing what it would have been like to see Ghostbusters 3 come together. Unfortunately, with Harold Ramis passed away and Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson getting up there in the years, it’s not likely to happen. But thanks to the magic of technology, one fan has given us a possible version of Ghostbusters 3.
You may remember back in 2009, a Ghostbusters video game was release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and a few more systems. It was easily the best Ghostbusters game ever made, not only because it was written by Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman but because it featured the voices of all the original cast members. Now one fan has taken the cinematics and some gameplay footage from the Ghostbusters video game and edited it into a feature-length Ghostbusters 3.

Though Dan Aykroyd recently said that casting was ongoing for Ghostbusters 3, the whole thing doesn’t seem real. In fact, it’s not going to seem real until he, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson put on the jump suits, proton packs and snap a picture. Then I’ll believe Ghostbusters 3 is happening.
Still, anyone who plays video games knows a third Ghostbusters story starring all four original cast members is already out there. Ghostbusters: The Video Game was released last year and was a massive hit. You played as a rookie, learning the ropes from the original Ghostbusters (who all provided their voices to the game), who had to bust a whole bunch of ghosts in their biggest case yet. The game was really short but incredibly fun – from the old school Columbia Pictures logo at the beginning, to the jokes about Walter Peck in the middle, to the epic battle at the end. (If you aren’t going to play it, read the story. It would make a great movie.)
Now, a second Ghostbusters video game will be released in the Spring called Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime. Available on X-Box Live and PlayStation Network, this sequel won’t have any of the original cast members returning and will be over head in stead of third person, but it will have local and online four player multiplayer.
