Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed release date: Three images of the Overlord specter, one in green, one with a pumpkin head, and one in red

Just in time for Halloween, we finally have a Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed release date for the Nintendo Switch. The 4v1 horror game launched this time last year on other consoles and PC via the Epic Games Store, so Switch players can now get in on the action in full cross-platform play.

The Ecto Edition adds several main story acts to the original game and a terrifying new ghost type, the Overlord. Most ghosts in the Firehouse prefer to hide, but the Overlord craves the hunt. They can also throw objects and slash at Ghostbusters, unlike the other more slimy specters that you usually find in ghost games.

IllFonic CEO & Co-Founder Charles Brungardt said, “We are super excited to bring Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed to all gaming platforms. As a lifelong fan of Ghostbusters, IllFonic has been hard at work to bring busting and haunting to all fans with the Ecto Edition. We are expanding the story, adding new maps, ghost types, and more.”
