Goofy and Ghostbusters co-star Kevin Hart will be featured in a VR game that’s being tested by NHL teams, sources tell the Post.
The app, which will be available in the summer, is called “ghostbusters” and it’ll feature both Hart and Hart’s Ghostbusters teammates.
“We’ve got a lot of good people on it,” a source told the Post about the app, adding that the app will be free for users.
The NHL team behind the game, the New York Islanders, confirmed the news via Twitter.
It’s coming soon!
— New York Isles (@NYIslanders) June 24, 2020The app will feature two players each: Hart and the fictional character “Ghostbuster.”
The app will also feature a voice-over telling the player how to play the game.
It also seems like this app will give fans an early taste of what the league is doing with virtual reality in the future.
The team is reportedly testing an upcoming app that will allow fans to take their photos, then share them with their friends on social media.
“They want to get it out there before we start having people coming in from the field,” a league source told The Post.
“I think that’s a good sign for the future.”
Hockey’s official website for “Ghosts,” however, didn’t have any information about the new app.
The team behind “Ghostbusters” also told the paper that the game will include a host of VR features, including the ability to play games and take pictures in real time.
“This is a really cool concept, so we’re really excited to bring it to life,” a representative from the game told the newspaper.
“It’s a really interesting concept and it’s going to be a really fun experience for our players and fans.”
