The game Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed – Ecto Edition is about to arrive on Nintendo Switch after its release on PC and consoles. During Gamescom 2023, we had the opportunity to try it out alongside its development team.
The game’s story revolves around Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz, who are in charge of training a new generation of Ghostbusters. Their mission is to protect the world from ectoplasmic threats. The game offers a wide range of weapons and modifications, as well as traps for ghosts and gadgets.
In terms of gameplay, it can be played in multiplayer mode, where a team of Ghostbusters must close the rifts that allow ghosts to enter the earthly plane. However, the ghosts can also scare the humans present and cause the Ghostbusters to lose the game.
During the gameplay session, we were able to test both online multiplayer mode and cooperative mode in handheld mode on the Nintendo Switch. Both worked smoothly and provided a fun experience. Additionally, it can be played solo by commanding our own team.
The game offers various customization options, both for weapons and character clothing. It also includes references to the original Ghostbusters franchise, showcasing the love that the development team has for this franchise.
In terms of performance, it was highlighted that the game is surprisingly smooth and only a few details need to be polished, but this is because we played a development version. Although the graphics may not be as impressive as on other consoles, the action is fluid.
In conclusion, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed – Ecto Edition promises to be a fun and fast-paced game that will surely delight fans of the franchise. The portability of the Nintendo Switch adds an extra advantage, allowing you to play anywhere and anytime.
