Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered Just Got Rated for Xbox One in Taiwan

By Laura Kate Dale on at

If you've never played the 2009 Ghostbusters video game tie in, imaginatively titled Ghostbusters: The Video Game, you're missing out on a treat. Sure, it's a little mechanically simplistic at times, but the combat is an absolute blast, as is the story and the performances that bring it to life.

Released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, the game was written with heavy input by original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd, who basically used a bunch of ideas from Ghostbusters sequel concepts that never got off the ground. Add on to that performances from Aykroyd, as well as Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson, and the game does a great job of feeling like a sequel worth playing.

The last time we saw the game was back in 2009, but it seems like a current generation remaster is probably on the cards thanks to a listing by the Taiwanese Ratings Board.

The remaster, titled Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered, is listed for Xbox One, and even has a link to a promotional website which is not yet live. The developer of the remaster is listed as Mad Dog Games.

While ratings board listings are not the same as official announcements, they're about as close as we tend to get before official news. For a game to be rated, the developer or publisher has to pay the ratings board, and send them evidence of the game's content, which usually suggests the game is fairly complete in-house. Ratings board listings usually mean a game is real, and very close to being revealed.

Our best guess is this remaster will probably get announced during E3 next month. We have reached out to mad Dog Games and will update this story if we receive a comment.
