Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective for the DS is one of my favorite games, even earning a spot on my “twenty must-play games” list back in 2016 (which I really should update someday, to add games like the Yakuza series).
Ghost Trick is an adventure game where you play as a ghost named Sissel who can possess objects in the environment and use them to get around or solve puzzles.
It’s written by Shu Takumi, creator of the Ace Attorney series, and it’s absolutely fantastic.
Good luck finding it now, though. The DS version has long since become scarce. There is an iOS port, so you’re not entirely out of luck if you want to play it, but the fact remains that Ghost Trick isn’t the most accessible game nowadays.
That’s why I’m so excited by the glimmer of hope that Ghost Trick might be about to return.
As reported by Gematsu, Ghost Trick has been rated in Korea using the code “GC-CC-NP,” which is for PC releases. The publisher is listed as Gamepia, who distributes Capcom games in Korea.
Unlike trademarks, which pop up all the time without news necessarily following, ratings have been a much better indicator that an announcement is on the way. So this looks like a good sign for an impending Ghost Trick port or remaster, which would be great! The more people that can play this excellent game, the better.
Do you think we’ll get Ghost Trick news soon?---
