Ghost Trick Sequel Could be “Difficult”

According to an interview with Game Informer, Shu Takumi of Capcom stated that it would be difficult for Ghost Trick to get a sequel. This is due to the fact that Sissel’s story concluded in this game. However, the idea of ghost powers may lead to more adventures down the line. [Thanks, Game Informer!]

In Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, the player takes on the role of Sissel, an amnesiac ghost who has to figure out his own death within twenty-four hours. He is capable of a number of powers, such as manipulating objects around him or traveling back in time. Sissel’s story completely ends over the course of the game. So a second game based on him might prove difficult even if there is keen interest around it. Takumi does hint in the interview that if enough people play the game, Capcom may consider writing a Ghost Trick sequel, which might introduce another protagonist.

Other parts from the interview included tidbits from the game’s development. For example, he revealed that the visuals of the game used 3D models that were animated, rendered into pixel art, and then displayed as 2D animation. Because Capcom used this method to create the models in 2010, they could create high-definition models for the modern ports. 90% of the animation in Ghost Trick is hand-animated as well.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective originally came out on the Nintendo DS in 2010. It will appear on the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC on June 30, 2023. You can read our preview of the PC version now.
