We aren't sure why Capcom waited until last night to announce the availability of a Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective demo on the Nintendo Channel in North America -- maybe they, and we, missed the release because it was just too spectral. As the book says, "the living usually won't see the dead."

In any case, it's been there since Monday, and all you have to do to play this trial scenario is load up the Nintendo Channel on your Wii, turn on Download Play on your DS, and beam the demo over like a dead person jumping from your TV into your DS. It's new content, exclusive to the DS demo -- not the same thing you played in that Flash demo.
