Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective was one of the best Nintendo DS games of its era, inventing an innovative puzzle mechanic that took full advantage of the handheld’s touch screen. Now the game is making the jump to high definition television screens, as part of a port that will see the title debut on the PlayStation 4.
This new remastered version will pack the same thought-provoking puzzles as the original, where you play as a ghoul named Sissel, who must leap between inanimate objects and manipulate them in order to save the lives of a rather unfortunate cast. Possessing corpses enables you to rewind time and relive the moments before their death, unlocking new opportunities to steer them away from their untimely end.
In addition to the improved visuals, the re-release will feature revamped menus and a remastered soundtrack by The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles’ Yasumasa Kitagawa. The game’s due out later this summer, but no specific release date has been announced just yet.
Oh man, PS4 as well? It’s one of the best DS games ever released so I hope it finds a new audience.
Great game, definitely hope more people discover it. Still one of my favorite story focused games out there.
@nessisonett At this point, third-party ports are generally going to be multiplats. There's no reason to make them exclusive, since they all have to able to function with traditional control schemes.
As much as i prefer buying games on Playstation, i prefer a game like this on Switch for portability.
I know that character from dead rising 4's capcom heroes mode lol
One of my all time favorites. Even pips ace attorney for me.. and that soundtrack. I always wanted a figure of Sissel, would probably pay silly money for it too.
Absolutely phenomenal game. Don't skip it if you enjoy quirky titles like this! 😃
So will they have extra content...namely where they go around Capcom & find the Ace Attorney Investigations 1 & 2 & finally get them out too alongside the remaining AA games yet to get modern ports?😋
Jokes aside,was always a tad curious but never took the bite & regretted it. Nice to see its return!
the very definition of a hidden gem. this is a game very few people talk about but it is created by the same team behind the phoenix wright games and deserves more attention.
I've never heard of this game before, but definitely interested in seeing more gameplay.
Great game, finished it twice on DS
One of the best underrated DS games, about time it got ported to consoles.
