UPDATE: Variety has more information including word that William Atherton (Walter Peck of the EPA) have signed on for the game along with other cast members from the films.
Remember earlier this year when Dan Aykroyd said in an interview that he was working on a new Ghostbusters video game? Well, it's almost time for us to get a look at that game. Game Informer has the story about this new adventure for the Sony PlayStation 3, PS2, Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox 360, and PC.
Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd are getting back together and revisiting their roles to make a sequel to Ghostbusters 1 and 2 – in video-game form, and we’ve got the first details. Both Aykroyd and Ramis are teaming up for scriptwriting duties and are going far beyond just the typical licensed add-your-voice-to-the-game-you-had-nothing-to-do-with formula. And no, this has nothing to do with the Ghostbusters Zootfly video demonstration that floated around the internet in January.
I have no idea how they convinced Bill Murray to return to the franchise considering his disdain for any kind of new Ghostbusters project. Here's hoping they get this one right. I really want... need, even... this game to be fantastic. When do we get to see the first screens of the game? They'll probably have to be careful when they do release that material to make sure the screens don't overlap. As we all know, crossing the screens would be bad.
