IllFonic has announced that Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed – Ecto Edition, the multiplayer game that pits four Ghostbusters against one ghost, will be coming to Nintendo Switch later this year. The game will be available in both physical and digital formats, and will feature new story content and expand on what is already available in the main game.
Originally released in October 2022 for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is a fun, easy-to-learn, and immersive game in which four proton pack-wielding Ghostbusters attempt to catch a ghost haunting unique locations in asymmetrical multiplayer battles. As they progress, players unlock cosmetics and upgrades for both Ghostbusters and Ghosts, allowing them to evolve their gameplay experiences.
The game’s Ecto Edition will push the Switch to its limits, according to IllFonic. It will run at a dynamic resolution from 720p in handheld to 1080p docked, and operate at 30 frames per second. The Switch version will also feature all the iconic gear and gadgets that fans would expect, such as Proton Packs, PKE Meters, and Ghost Traps. Players will have the option to enjoy the game solo or with up to four friends, and both online and offline single-player modes will be available in the form of AI-assisted play.
The game’s hub, the Firehouse and Ray’s Occult Books, will be recognizable to fans of the Ghostbusters franchise. In this area, players will choose missions, customize their characters, practice firing their proton packs, and explore everything there is to learn. The original film actors will also be reprising their roles as Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore, along with some new friends.
A specific release date for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed – Ecto Edition on Nintendo Switch has not yet been given, but the game is expected to arrive later in 2023.
With the release of Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed – Ecto Edition on the Nintendo Switch, fans of the franchise can look forward to experiencing all the iconic ghostbusting action they love in a fun and immersive multiplayer game. The game’s easy-to-learn mechanics and recognizable locations will make it a hit with both new and old fans alike.
