The iOS version of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, which came out in Japan in December 2010, is finally coming out worldwide.

A free update to the currently Japan-only iPhone version of the wonderful Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective adds native iPad support, allowing those lucky people in possession of an iPad -- connected to the Japan's iTunes Store -- to see the beautiful animations on the biggest screen yet.

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." I...

One of the most impressive elements of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is its fluid, expressive animation -- even when the movements taking place aren't the most naturally graceful things. For example, the trailer after the break features a man having a heart attack or some other kind of medical emer...

Back in March, we linked a Japanese-language demo for Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. Now, you can play that Flash demo in English, not only allowing you to experience the introduction to the DS puzzle adventure, but to know what the hell you're experiencing!...

This new trailer for Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective returns us to the distinctive chicken restaurant seen previously. This time, we can see the restaurant as it was before the cops so rudely barged in (through the wall). And we meet the chef, who possibly instigates said intrusion ... by singing....

The dead will roam the earth starting January 11, 2011, to inhabit our donut carts and cabinet doors. Or at least one dead guy will ... in a DS game. January 11 is the newly revealed North American release date for Capcom's Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, in which an amnesiac ghost named Sissel solv...

A dead amnesiac's work is never done. In the latest Ghost Trick trailer (after the break), we see a new scenario in which a police car drives through a restaurant window, dropping a gigantic piece of meat on a bystander. Naturally, the only person able to set this right will be Sissel, a dead man wi...

We'd happily take any opportunity to talk about Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective -- to our readers, our coworkers, our friends, people we meet in elevators, etc. So we happily jumped at the chance to talk with Capcom's Shu Takumi, the person responsible for creating the supernatural puzzle-adventure g...

Sissel is assisted in this task by Missile, Kamilla's dog -- who, like Sissel, has recently been ...

After publishing our E3 2010 preview of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, we worried that we hadn't adequately captured and conveyed the game's bizarre concept. We're not the only ones left a bit speechless by the amazing Ghost in the Rube Goldberg Machine adventure -- ooh, that's a good way to put it...

Ghost Trick begins where most games come to an abrupt end -- with your death. It's of the intriguing, unexplained and very undignified variety, and leaves your spirit separated from your sharply dressed body. As Sissel, a sarcastic smooth talker who's cool enough to wear sunglasses even after death,...

The latest trailer for Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective takes us out of the junkyard venue we've seen previously, including in the demo, and into the home of an "Elegant Lady," who seems to have great skill in the art of drunkenly dodging ghost-manipulated "naughty chandeliers." In addition to demo...

The evidence continues to build for a worldwide release of Okamiden. Less than a week after a European trademark appeared for the DS Okami sequel, Siliconera discovered an American trademark for the same thing, filed February 12. At this point, it seems assured that Capcom will localize the game, un...

Capcom's Ghost Trick was one of the most memorable games of TGS (in our opinion), combining a novel puzzle mechanic with a memorable style. We've been eagerly awaiting any new information or media that may (Ghost) trickle out, and now we've got a new-ish trailer to share for the 2010 release. We ...
