The next game from Shu Takumi, the creator of the Ace Attorney series, opens with the main character getting shot. After insight from a desk lamp, Sissel makes use of his ghastly form to rewind time and possess objects to save another person’s life.
Capcom announced Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective will be in stores on January 11, 2011. The news came with new North American box art.
"The appeal of having a ghost is because he’s from the ghost world he can view the lives of these characters – mysteries, lives, puzzles, and challenges, one step removed from the situation. He’s interacting with them, but he is also an observer," Takumi explained in a Siliconera interview when we asked him about making a ghost for a main character.
