January 8, 2009 // 5:56 am - Update: It now appears the game will hit stores on June 19, according to a separate press release from the game's publisher, Atari.

Sony has confirmed via a press release this week that the upcoming videogame adaptation of Ghostbusters will be released simultaneously alongside the Blu-ray version of the original film on June 16, 2009.

Spotted by eagle eyed bloggers at Joystiq.com, the press release reads: "The simultaneous [June 16] launch of Ghostbusters: The Video Game, the highly anticipated videogame from Atari, celebrates the film's 25th anniversary."

Featuring a script penned by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Rami, Ghostbusters: The Video Game kicks of two years after the events of Ghostbusters II with players filling the shoes of a new recruit hired to test drive one of Egon's latest gizmos.

Naturally - or perhaps we should say, supernaturally - the team soon find themselves combating an array of iconic spooks and ghastly ghouls including Slimer, the Library Ghost and Stay Puft Marshmellow Man.

In order to maintain continuity with the films, all four original actors will be reprising their roles in the game, including Bill Murray (Peter Venkman) and Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore).
