Sony pictures has let the release date for Ghostbusters: The Video Game slip. What can effectively be considered the third movie that was never made despite rumors cropping up every few years or so is coming out in June. True Ghostbusters fans won’t be terribly surprised as the game will be releasing on the same day as the original film is released on Blu-ray for the 25th anniversary, June 16th for North America. Europe will be getting the game soon after, with the official release date being June 19th.
The game is penned by the original writers and features the original cast doing the voices of all the characters that have been brought into the game, including the four ghostbusters and even lesser players like Annie Potts, revisiting her role as the bug-eyed secretary Janine Melnitz. Even William Atherton has signed on to voice the annoying EPA agent Walter Peck. The screenshots of the game look quite impressive and all the other facets of the title make for an impressive pedigree, so now we just have to wait and hope that the gameplay is as polished as possible, for many fans will be quite disappointed at a lackluster game.
