New Ghostbusters game trailer touts Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis and Hudson

The Video Game HD Screenshot

A new Ghostbusters: The Video Game trailer along with new screenshots has been released by Atari, who will publish the game on six systems (Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PC and DS) in 2009. Note that the Wii and PS2 version will feature more cartoony looking graphics and characters due to the lack of HD graphics.

The Video Game on PS3Developed by Terminal Reality, who worked closely with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, Inc., the game will be released to coincide with the 25th anniversary celebration of the original film’s theatrical release with a completely new story that re-unites the original cast members from the film (complete with their voice acting and in-game likeness) in a sequel (Ghostbusters 3, if you will) that seeks to recapture the unique blend of humor, fright and action that established Ghostbusters as one of the most popular and recognizable pop culture sensations in history.

Here is an all-new trailer for the game.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game is penned by the original writers of Ghostbusters, Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd and re-unites the original film’s cast, for the first time in 20 years, in Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson with a storyline that takes place two years after the Ghostbuster II film. The game even features fan favorites such as William Atherton (Walter Peck), Annie Potts (Janine Melnitz) and Brian Doyle-Muray (Mayor Jock Mulligan).

Sony will also be releasing the two movies on Blu-ray disc for the first time in celebration of it’s anniversary.

Protector of the Earth on DSBen 10: Protector of the Earth has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide announced D3P (short for “D3Publisher”, the name of the company) who released the game in October of last year for Wii, DS, PS2 and PSP.

The game is based on the hit Cartoon Network show of the same name and was developed by 1st Playable Productions (with the DS version done by High Voltage Software).

In the game, players follow the animated show’s star Ben Tennyson as he uses the alien Omnitrix device attached to his wrist, using super powers and changing into alien forms to take on puzzles, challenges, and skirmishes.

“Having our first-ever Ben 10 interactive game be as successful as it has is a huge accomplishment for us and this is another milestone of which we’re very proud,” says Cartoon Network Enterprises’ vice president Christina Miller. “We look forward to continued success as we build the brand’s interactive franchise with a great partner in D3.”

D3P also recently released a follow-up, Ben 10: Alien Force, based on the new Ben 10 show that takes place five years after the original. The sequel was shipped to stores in late October for Wii, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Nintendo DS.

The good news? Atlus has re-released the PS1 cult-classic Persona 2 in limited quantities, exclusively via Amazon.com. What’s even better is that the game has been updated so that it works with PS1, PS2 and PS3 consoles and includes a few extras; including an anime trailer of Persona 2 and an exclusive video interview with the creators of the game.

The bad news? Copies FLEW out of Amazon and within an hour, the limited number of pressings had completely sold out. And not only did it sell out within an hour, but the re-print even managed to crack the Amazon top ten best-sellers list, which is quite the feat considering all the other high profile games being released. You can still find copies of the game available, but they will cost you a pretty penny, with Persona 2: Eternal Punishment’s re-print costing in the $80-dollar range.

Persona 4 for PS2iNaturally, the re-print was made to celebrate the franchise and it’s rising popularity leading up to the release of Persona 4, which hits on December 9th. Which is an interesting turn of events considering that the Persona series once was considered a franchise for only the most hardcore RPG players.
As such, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment is considered by many to be the series’ high-mark.

Now it’s the job of all of you RPG fans to write up Atlus and let them know that you would love to see a true re-release/update of Persona 2.
Hopefully just the selling out of the title itself sent Atlus a strong message. RPG fans love their Persona!
