Prime the slime, a new Ghostbusters game is in the works

If there’s a game in development, and you want it announced. Who you gonna call: Ernie Hudson! Indeed, thanks to actor Ernie Hudson – a.k.a. Gostbusters’ Winston Zeddemore – the world now knows that another Ghostbusters game is coming. And that’s about all he had to say about it because he was quite clueless when it comes to specifics.

Thank god for Celebrity Fan Fests. Not only do we get to meet our lifetime heroes, we also make them spill beans. Just like someone from Ghostbusters News did with Ernie Hudson, attending a Q&A session at the Celebrity Fan Fest in San Antonio. I’m not really sure if the news was supposed to be shared yet, but when people ask you if you’d want to appear in another Ghostbusters video game, just say ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Saying stuff like “In fact, I just got an email, because we’re doing another video game” could be considered jumping the proton pack.

Anyway, realizing there’s no way of undoing that announcement, Bernie kept talking. Which is great for me, because it gives me stuff to write about. For instance, this is what Bernie said when it comes to the involvement of the other OG actors:

“So they’re scheduling it now to do the recording, and I’m not sure who’s going to do [it].

“I know me and Danny [Aykroyd], I think. I’m not sure Billy [Murray] will do anything on it. So there’ll be another video game.”

How fascinating. No word on Harold Ramis. Unless you count Bernie’s resemblance speech as a word.

“They’ve been sending me prototypes of the character to get the image right, [and] they seem to have a hard time creating my image.

“It’s so weird to me that they can get Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis to look exactly like they look, but I end up looking like Eddie Murphy or somebody.

“Anyway, so we’ll be doing it. When they’ll bring it out, I don’t know, but definitely, it’s happening.”

So there you have it. Another major Ghostbusters game since 2009’s Ghostbusters: The Video Game, which was remastered 10 years later. Are you lookin’ forward to this whatsoever? Are you ready to cross streams with your ghostbusting buddies again? If so, could you explain to me why?
