Today, developer Saber Interactive and publisher Mad Dog Games' Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered released onto PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. To accompany the release, the aforementioned pair released a brand-new launch trailer, which you can peep at the top of the article. That said, since the game released, players have gotten their hands on the game, and have found a new addition that wasn't in the original game: a touching tribute to the late Harold Ramis.
