Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective physical

You can count Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective as Capcom’s latest Switch game that isn’t getting a physical release in the west. However, the good news is that the situation is different in Japan.

Capcom is indeed planning on making Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective available as a boxed release in the country. Meanwhile, in both North America and Europe, it’s digital-only. Thankfully, since Switch is region free, this won’t be as big of an issue for most fans since English is supported (as well as other languages). Importing will be the way to go here.

Below is an overview of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, a new version of the DS cult classic:

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective was created by Shu Takumi, the creator of the Ace Attorney series, and is now back in a long-requested HD remaster of the original 2010 release! Yasumasa Kitagawa, the popular composer who created the music for “The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles,” has created a remastered 1-to-1 soundtrack for the entire game. Players can seamlessly switch between the original and remastered soundtracks. Additionally, new extra features such as the “Illustrations” and “Music” features have been added. Tonight, we rise from the dead!

A dark night. In a corner of town, our main character loses his life to a single bullet. Reawakening as a spirit, he realizes he has lost his memories along with his life.

“Who am I? Why was I killed? Who killed me? …And what is the meaning of these ‘Powers of the Dead’ I’ve been given?”

Tomorrow morning, his spirit will disappear. A unique clue-chasing story has begun! The first of those clues is a single female detective, who seems to have witnessed the murder…
