Ghostbusters sanctum of slime
Pull on your Proton Packs and grab yourself a twinkie, the Ghostbusters are rolling back onto the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms next year in a brand new title, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime.

Due out in Spring 2011, this download-only title will feature stream-crossing 4-player co-op modes, Ecto-3 driving sections and tons of towering ghosts to…er…bust. From the looks of things, most of the action will be from a top-down isometric angle, which is suggests it’ll be a twin stick shooter, as is proving popular in the download world right now.

Sadly, the original cast members wont be offering their voice talents to the game though, so we’ll have to wait for any news on the long-rumoured Ghostbusters 3 flick to see Dan Akroyd, Harold Ramis and the legendary Bill Murray re-united once more.

“Following the success of Ghostbusters: The Video Game, we are committed to continuing the lore of the Ghostbusters franchise with Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime,” says Jim Wilson, President and CEO of Atari, Inc. “In Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, we are introducing an entirely new look and gameplay experience on digital platforms that will impress new and loyal Ghostbusters fans alike.”

“We are more than pleased to see Ghostbusters continue to thrive in the video game space with the upcoming release of Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime,” said Mark Caplan, Vice President Interactive, Sony Pictures Consumer Products. “Atari has been an incredible partner in helping us re-establish this beloved film franchise.”

Check out the first screenshots of the game below, and remember: when someone asks you if you’re a god, you say “YES”!
