When there's something strange in the neighborhood, you might not need to call anyone! Instead, using a new Pokémon GO-style augmented reality game, you may be able to pick up your phone and deal with the ghosts yourself. Sony Pictures Entertainment Consumer Products, Ghost Corps, and publisher FourThirtyThree Inc. have teamed up to release Ghostbusters World!

On Friday, Feburary 23, Sony released a trailer for the game.

Ghostbusters fans are pretty eager to put on their virtual proton packs:

Though a little bit unexpected, the game is most welcome:

The game now has active Facebook and Twitter profiles where gamers can stay up-to-date on its upcoming release. Its Facebook profile hypes the game up:

Specters, poltergeists, full-roaming vapors, and more from your favorite Ghostbusters movies, TV shows, comics and video games are about to invade our world.

However, some fans are worried the new game will be too similar to Pokémon GO.

Will Ghostbusters World be a fun, new game, or an unexciting Poké -knockoff? We'll have to pile into the Ecto-1 and find out!
