Alright guys, I’m pretty sure that GameCola’s among the first to break the news on this upcoming title… but Konami’s coming out with a new Ghostbusters title for Playstation 2. No word on whether or not it will be ported to any other major consoles, but PS2 is a definite.
According to Konami, the game will be nothing like the Ghostbuster piles of Slimer dung that came out for the NES when the movies were originally released. It will, however, be again based on the movies, and not the cartoon (which also rocked, by the way).
The game will support one to four players, and will be a a third-person perspective action/adventure title in the vein of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance. Except that instead of traveling through fields and dungeons killing monsters with your swords, you’ll be traveling through hotels and libraries capturing ghosts with your proton packs.
Ghostbusters for Playstation 2 won’t follow the movies exactly, but rather have you play the role of one of these paranormal peace-keepers in their every day career. You’ll be given instructions by Janine on where to bust ghosts, and then you’ll suit up, get in the ambulance, and do it. Afterwards you’ll be paid by whoever gave you the job, and you can use that money to purchase new ghost-busting equipment.
I don’t know about you guys, but this ranks up there with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a game that I can absolutely not wait for!!
