Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed was originally released on the PlayStation 4 (PS4), PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Now, it is finally getting a release on the Nintendo Switch. I’ve been covering the release since its release and have been having a blast, in the process. I certainly said that in my review.
Since the release, I have been playing this game with my son. He can easily beat me and he’s unlocked almost everything. When we play together, we are often on the same team, so it has been a great bonding experience. He routinely wants to live stream the game on YouTube.
From the developer, IllFonic about the game:
In Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore open the Firehouse to you and the next generation of Ghostbusters. This asymmetrical game of hide and seek is a four-versus-one setup where players will either play as part of a team of new Ghostbusters or a Ghost. This title not only allows players to enjoy the game solo or with up to four friends, but also features an online and offline single-player mode available in the form of AI-assisted play. Most importantly, the more you play, the more the story will unfold (with cutscenes). Those already playing will be excited to hear that this story will be expanded in the Ecto Edition coming later this year. Whether haunting or hunting, the game is easy to learn and fun to master!
The graphics look like they take a hit on the Switch, but we are accustomed to that. Take a look at the trailer and let me know what you think.
