IllFonic will release four-versus-one asymmetrical multiplayer game Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed – Ecto Edition for Switch in 2023, the developer announced. It will be avilable both physically and digitally.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed first launched for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store on October 18, 2022.
The Switch version will run in a dynamic resolution from a range of 720p (handheld mode) to 1080p at maximum, at 30 frames per second.
“As a gamer, I wanted this to be something I would be proud and excited to play,” IllFonice vice president of technology Chance Lyon said in a press release. “The game will feel very familiar on Switch as on other platforms, and it’s a high-quality port. Most importantly, I’m excited to play the game with my daughter, who games exclusively on the Switch.”
Here is a brief overview of the game, via IllFonic:
In Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore open the Firehouse to you and the next generation of Ghostbusters. This asymmetrical game of hide and seek is a four-versus-one setup where players will either play as part of a team of new Ghostbusters or a Ghost. This title not only allows players to enjoy the game solo or with up to four friends, but also features an online and offline single-player mode available in the form of AI-assisted play. Most importantly, the more you play, the more the story will unfold (with cutscenes). Those already playing will be excited to hear that this story will be expanded in the Ecto Edition coming later this year. Whether haunting or hunting, the game is easy to learn and fun to master!
