So far, very few details about the game have been released. Its official website is online, though it currently offers a teaser trailer that doesn’t actually feature any in-game footage. The premise of the game is obviously that as you move around, various ghosts will appear and you’ll have to ‘bust’ them. Exactly how that will work remains to be seen.

It’s been reported that the ghosts set to feature in the game will be pulled from all areas of the franchise, including the TV shows, films, video games and comic books. There will also be a number of brand new ghosts specially created just for this game. So far, there’s no telling just how many different ghosts are set to appear in the game; if Pokemon Go’s anything to go by, we can expect at least a hundred, with more being added to the game at later dates.
