Last night’s Nintendo Direct was packed from start to complete with games to be enthusiastic about, most notably, loads of ports and remasters. One title that slipped under my radar because of a visit to the kitchen was the wonderful Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, which is able to arrive on the Nintendo Switch in HD this summer.
Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is a supernatural adventure game that first launched on the Nintendo DS back in 2012. Actually, it’s top-of-the-line Nintendo DS games of all time, and I’m personally over the moon that I’ll finally have the opportunity to revisit the ghostly endeavours of Sissel in HD.
In Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, you play as Sissel, a spirit who awakes with no memories of his past. After learning some nifty ghost tricks, Sissel learns he can manipulate the objects around him and fiddle with time; using what he knows, Sissel can actually return in time and save peoples lives.
What makes it higher? You really get to play as a ghostly dog later in the sport. I won’t share too rather more than that, because that is certainly one of those fun, charming, yet dark games best experienced for yourself.
And for those who’re not fully convinced yet, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective was actually written by Shu Takumi, the creator of Ace Attorney. So, you possibly can be pretty confident that the unfolding narrative here is fun, and refreshing. Pair this with latest HD visuals, and Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is essential to your Nintendo Switch.
As for when the sport will release on the Nintendo Switch, we aren’t sure yet, with Nintendo sharing that it’ll arrive ‘this summer’.
