Ghostbusters Lands on PSN Tomorrow


David Williams stopped by the Sony Blog and shared some screens and info about the new Ghostbusters title landing tomorrow:

In Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, the story begins 4000 years ago with a strange cult mourning the death of Dumazu, an ancient demon of death and destruction. Fast forward to 1989, when museum curator Janosz Poha is sent to a mental institution following the events in Ghostbusters 2. There he meets Ismael, the self-proclaimed last member of the cult of Dumazu. Ismael seeks a Shard of the Relic of Nilhe, a mystic artifact that possesses the power to bring Dumazu the Destroyer back to life, and he tasks Janosz with obtaining it. Janosz’s reward: Dana Barrett.

Some years later, following Janosz’s release from the mental institution, a wave of unusual paranormal manifestations start appearing all over New York City. The Ghostbusters can’t handle all the heat with this latest outbreak, so they recruit a young group of paranormal studies enthusiasts to lend a hand. And that’s where you come in, guiding the rookie team in their first adventure to find the truth behind Ismael, the Relic of Nilhe, and Dumazu the Destroyer!

One of the goals when writing the story was to keep true to the Ghostbusters universe. Making it funny, yet smart and sarcastic. To accomplish these goals we had the help of someone with some experience: Tom Waltz, scriptwriter of the IDW Ghostbusters comics. He transformed our storyline into an amazing comic sequence that flows between the levels to tell the player what is happening in NYC and to introduce them to the personalities of the new rookies.

This new chapter in the Ghostbusters story not only introduces the new rookie team, but links them to some of the classic series characters. Favorites such as Slimer and Stay Puft make an appearance as well, but the core of the story is focused on the first adventures of the rookie team dealing with a strange menace overcoming New York City.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime comes to the PlayStation Store tomorrow, March 22nd as part of Spring Fever.
