Atari have revealed the line-up behind the upcoming downloadable title appearing on XBLA, PSN and PC, profiling the four characters of the four-player game before it releases on March 23rd.
Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime features a rookie team of all-new Ghostbusters:
Practical and hardworking, he’s no real background in the paranormal, but is the workhorse leader of the team – the others know he’s always there to pick them up after a Knock Down or help with wrangling a frenzied ghoul. He’s also the steady hand of the team – when things go wrong he’s the one with the plan.
An optimistic scientist with a positive outlook that keeps the team’s spirits high. There’s no ghost too big or bad that can’t be figured out and then busted. He has a slight advantage with his studies in the paranormal and makes good use of this extra knowledge to help bust the stranger entities that the team comes across.
The tough chick with a fierce determination and a penchant for wisecracks at other’s expense. Like Alan she has no paranormal training, but is a natural Ghostbuster, always at the forefront of the battles. At times sparks can fly between her and the rest of the team, but the jokes end when there’s work to be done.
The technical genius of the group, he’s also not scared of getting his hands dirty when the ghosts try and get up close and personal. Following in Dr Spengler’s footsteps, he’s keen to learn more about being a Ghostbuster, and make his own mark unearthing more information on the spectral realm and developing his own new technologies.
With a fantastic range of inventive ghoul-busting weapons on offer, as well as four player action as you clean up the ghost threat in New York City, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime is looking like it could be a nice spin-off game for the series.
