Ghost Trick Spooks June Release

imageWhat is the director of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney working on? A brand new adventure game called Ghost Trick.


Sissel starts the game without his memories and… dead. Having been shot and killed, Sissel is a ghost. Now with possession-like powers Sissel helps save other characters lives. Similar to the Phoenix Wright games, Capcom made a web demo for Ghost Trick. Speaking of Phoenix, he makes a cameo in the game.


Japan gets Ghost Trick on June 24. Capcom confirmed a North American release, but haven’t set a date at this time.

    Color me interested, the miles edgeworth game was an decent shift from the standrd Ace Attorney games, but this looks like it could be a good change of pace.

    I’m buying this simply for the gorgeous animation. I’ve never seen anything like that on a portable.

    • Pichi

      Same here. Love the concept as well. I hope it can have some nice replay value.

      for me, it’s the Art Style, remind me of the unique concept in The World Ends With You

  • malek86

    This somewhat reminds me of Devil Summoner. Must be the guy’s hairdo and the whole possessing thing.

    The demo was interesting, so I’ll consider it.

    I never been exited in a game like that in a long time!


    I think this game will be the great revival of Phoenix Wright spiritually. The quality of the series hasn’t been there as much since Apollo Justice. Currently playing Edgeworth which is decent, but not as good or interesting as previous titles. Does anyone know when the maker of Phoenix Wright wasn’t involved with the series anymore?

      Shu Takumi created the first 3 on the GBA and oversaw the revival and Apollo Justice. I don’t know if he had any involvement with the Edgeworth game since I think he was finally concentrating on Ghost Trick (which he says was an idea he was thinking about since he was working on Trials & Tribulations).

        Thanks for the informative answer, I had a feeling that was the case. Can’t wait :)
