More On: Ghostbusters

Saber Interactive just announced that you can pre-order Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered today online or at retail. Originally released a decade ago, Ghostbusters captured the essence of the classic films in a way that no other adaptation really has. It starred the entire cast, including the dearly departed Harold Ramis, and is considered by many fans to essentially be the third "movie" in the Ghostbusters trilogy.

The game is getting a full HD remaster for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC, just in time for the first film's 35th anniversary. This is a great opportunity to revisit one of last-gen's true hidden gems when the remaster drops on October 4th. Check out the trailer below where Dan Akroyd himself reintroduces this modern classic.
