Wii Ghostbusters Gets Real
February 25, 2009
Atari is finally starting to take the protective wrapping off of the Nintendo Wii version of Ghostbusters: The Video Game which, as you'll recall, sports a less realistic, more animated style compared to its Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 counterparts. Kombo has some screenshots to show you in which we see the team in action plus looks as receptionist Janine Melnitz, pet ghost Slimer, and much more (there are a few screenshots of the powerhouse console version of the game mixed in for some reason, so just ignore those). Take special notice of the image featuring a ghost wearing an old military uniform that resembles the one worn by Ray Stantz during the dream sequence in the first Ghostbusters movie. That dream sequence was actually part of a longer scene in the original script and the film's novelization in which the team is called upon to clear ghosts out of Fort Detmerring. Coincidence? Maybe that lost scene has made it into the game. We'll find out in June.
