2009 was a great time for video games, and one of the best games of the year was none other than Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
The action-adventure game was adored by millions, and being available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable and PC, there was no end of ways to play it.
Excitingly, the third-person shooter seems to be getting the remake treatment, as a listing for the apparently-upcoming title has appeared online.
The listing is simply entitled “Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered,” but in an interesting departure from the original, it looks like it’s only set to release on the Xbox One. At least, that’s the only console featured on the listing…
Xbox exclusive or not, the internet is pretty damn excited about the news.
Over on Twitter, eager fans are celebrating the news and hoping for a reveal at E3 2019.
Gamers are already offering up their hopes, dreams and suggestions in the hopes of the remake getting done right.
“I hope it comes to PS4 too and or the Switch,” said one user. “I still remember preordering the game for PS3 and getting a phone call from Dan Aykroyd as like a robo call to remind me to pick it up, such an awesome game”
Another said what we’re all thinking: “It will because simply put.. Sony owns both properties.. it would make no sense at all if it only came out on Xbox..”
The original Ghostbusters: The Video Game was developed for Windows, the PS3 and Xbox 360 by Terminal Reality.
Red Fly Studio handled the development of the PS2, PSP and Wii versions, while Zen Studios developed the Nintendo DS version.
In North America, all versions of the game were published by Atari, while Sony handled publishing in Europe.
Hopefully we’ll get more information on this remake sooner rather than later!
