Ghostbusters World mobile game revealed


Following the success of 2016's Pokémon Go, and the growing influence of augmented reality, Sony Pictures and Ghost Corps have announced a partnership with 4:33 Creative Lab (and their partner, NextAge) to produce Ghostbusters World, a mobile game which will see players battle and (hopefully) capture a wide selection of ghosts from the live action, animated, comic, toy and videogame instalments of the Ghostbusters franchise (From the poster alone, there's the Sandman from The Real Ghostbusters, Tempus from Extreme Ghostbusters, potentially Ivo Shandor from Ghostbusters: The Video Game, Bug-Eye from the Kenner toy line, and Gertrude Aldridge from Ghostbusters: Answer The Call).

The mobile game is planned for release later this year, and will be available for Android and iOS.

For a preview of what the final game may look like, check out the alpha footage below:

Playmobil expands Ghostbusters range


Following a Twitter response earlier in the month where toymaker Playmobil hinted that there could be more Ghostbusters products in the future, this news was confirmed during this weekend's New York Comic Con, where the company unveiled the next sets in their Ghostbusters collection, based on Ghostbusters II and The Real Ghostbusters.

The figures inspired by The Real Ghostbusters will come with an assortment of vehicles, much like some of the sets released by Kenner back in the 1980s. It has been noted that the Ghostbusters II and Real Ghostbusters sets will form a single second wave, which is believed to span eight sets in total, rather than second and third waves respectively in the licenced range.
This may mean that fans hoping for figures of Vigo the Carpathian, or the cartoon's notable villains may be left disappointed.

The new sets are expected to appear in stores in 2018.
