Ginza Sony Park unveils Ghostbusters augmented reality experience

Ginza Sony Park has unveiled a new ‘Ghostbusters Rookie Training’ augmented reality (AR) experience, as part of its ‘Ghostbusters in the Park’ programme.

To commemorate the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters, Sony will give fans the chance to become Ghostbusters at the Ginza Sony Park in Tokyo, Japan.

Participants will be led by trainers as they explore Ginza Sony Park, working together to exterminate any ghosts that pop up throughout the venue.

The free experience is running from October 12 to December 8. Fans interested in taking part are required to sign up, with players picked via a lottery system.

Two to four sessions are planned for each day, and sessions last approximately 60 minutes, including a questionnaire.
