Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective on Nintendo DS

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is an adventure game developed by Capcom for the Nintendo DS. The lead development was handled by Shu Takumi, the creator of the Ace Attorney series. The game is published by Capcom and was released for the Nintendo DS in Japan on June 19, 2010, in North America on January 11, 2011 and in Europe on January 14, 2011.

The story of Ghost Trick focuses on Sissel, a ghost who has special abilities called Ghost Tricks. As a spirit, Sissel can switch between the Land of the Living, where time runs its course, and the Ghost world, where time stands still. In Ghost mode, Sissel can travel between various objects within his reach, represented by blue cores, as well as communicate with the spirits of corpses, who have yellow cores. When possessing certain inanimate objects, players can perform Ghost Tricks while outside of Ghost mode in order to perform actions that open new paths or invoke certain reactions from characters required to progress through the story. He is also able to talk to people who he has rescued before.

By interacting with a dead body, Sissel can travel to four minutes before that character was killed. The player must use Sissel's Ghost Tricks to open up new paths so they can change the victim's fate. Some sections include moments where the player must race against a short timer in order to save the victim. If a player makes a mistake or is unable to save the victim in time, he can rewind time back to the start or from the last point fate was altered.


Ghost Trick was the second best-selling video game in Japan during its release week at 24,000 copies. Results from a poll conducted by Dengeki showed that Japanese gamers found Ghost Trick to be the 13th most interesting game for the first half of 2010.

Ghost Trick has received mostly positive reviews; it's puzzles, story, characters and gameplay being particularly praised.
