Ghost Trick, Phantom Detective

From the creator of all those crazy lawyer games on the DS comes the tale of a dead guy who floats around and solves mysteries.

Gotta be better than it sounds. It looks like a point and click thing, adventure games sure are making a comeback huh?

Ghost Trick is coming soon for the DS from Capcom- full details and screens after the break.

Ghost Trick Phantom Detective is the latest project by Shu Takumi, creator of the Ace Attorney series. In Ghost Trick, players explore the spirit world as Sissel, a brave murder-victim who has lost his memory and returns to earth as a ghost. Now he’ll have to unravel the mystery of his suspicious demise with his new found supernatural abilities. Using the stylus, players can manipulate inanimate objects in order to protect innocent victims and alter their fate.  In order to save their lives, players will travel down many paths in order to discover and counteract the elaborate murder conspiracies. Players will use strategy to choose the best path and will be successful by moving fast as Sissel only has until dawn before he has to leave the supernatural world for good. As Sissel progresses through the game, the mystery of his own death will be revealed over time.  Will players discover the truth before his time runs out?
