313w ago - The long awaited Ghostbusters III is here... and it's a game.
We might be a bit biased - after all we here at gameplayer are all children of the decade - but we reckon few would disagree that the 1980s was a pretty good era for movie trilogies. Star Wars, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Mad Max, The Karate Kid - all of these are absolute classics (well, except for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and basically all of The Karate Kid).
However, Ghostbusters is the classic '80s film trilogy that never was. By the time the excessive eighties gave way to the nondescript nineties, the franchise had only enjoyed two feature films (and a cartoon television series, The Real Ghostbusters). It was simply too late for a third movie to be made. Sigourney Weaver shaved her head and made Alien 3. Dan Ackroyd made Coneheads, and then subsequently made us throw-up with My Girl and My Girl 2. Rick Moranis shrunk some kids and then became a real estate agent, probably (or died, we're not sure). Harold Ramis focused more on writing and directing. And Bill Murray... well, Bill Murray continued to be one of the coolest guys on the planet (we love you, Bill!).

If bustin' makes you feel good, then it looks as if there's a treat in store for gamers in the recently announced game being developed by Red Fly Studios for the Wii, reports UK Nintendo magazine NGamer.
The mag has the first firm details of the title, and says that the game will be set in 1991, two years after the events of the film Ghostbusters 2.
The game will have 10 or so single-player levels, including the streets of New York during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, a library basement, a graveyard, and "Lost Island," along with four-player co-op and competitive modes, and a series of minigames.
Multiplayer modes include two-versus-two battle mode, where the team that catches the most ghosts wins, or another where you just damage as much furniture as possible. There is also domination mode, where players have to control a series of artefacts. Minigames will include Shuffleboard, Ghost Trap, and Proton Packs.
The famous, fluffy Marshmallow Man also puts in an appearance, along with the Ectomobile, and the creepy woman in the library from the first film.
Ghostbusters is currently expected to zap in for a Christmas 2008 release, and will...
