Meet the Rookie Busters of Sanctum of Slime

In case you haven't been paying attention, Sanctum of Slime is the pseudo-sequel to last year's Ghostbusters the Videogame. Even if you have been paying attention though, you may not have known that there are no actual classic Ghostbusters featured in the game- instead, you'll be playing as, and alongside, an expansion team of rookies.

And just who are these rookies, Dr.Venkman? Click through to find out- Sanctum of Slime will be available for download on March 23

 Atari today release new details of the rookie team of Ghostbusters that feature in Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime out on March 23rd on XBLA, PSN and PC Download.

Even though they're inexperienced each one has their place in the team and they work together as a whole to bring down the bad guys.  Whatever is waiting for them today, the first day at work, they'll meet it head on, with all their daring, skill and courage.

Practical and hardworking, he's no real background in the paranormal, but is the workhorse leader of the team - the others know he's always there to pick them up after a Knock Down or help with wrangling a frenzied ghoul.  He's also the steady hand of the team - when things go wrong he's the one with the plan.

An optimistic scientist with a positive outlook that keeps the team's spirits high.  There's no ghost too big or bad that can't be figured out and then busted.  He has a slight advantage with his studies in the paranormal and makes good use of this extra knowledge to help bust the stranger entities that the team comes across.

The tough chick with a fierce determination and a penchant for wisecracks at other's expense.  Like Alan she has no paranormal training, but is a natural Ghostbuster, always at the forefront of the battles.  At times sparks can fly between her and the rest of the team, but the jokes end when there's work to be done.

The technical genius of the group, he's also not scared of getting his hands dirty when the ghosts try and get up close and personal.  Following in Dr Spengler’s footsteps, he's keen to learn more about being a Ghostbuster, and make his own mark unearthing more information on the spectral realm and developing his own new technologies.
