Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective release window

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is currently slated to arrive on June 30, 2023. According to their official announcement trailer it will be available on multiple previous generation platforms including the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. However, it’ll be backwards compatible on the newer Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles too.

Aside from the launch date’s revelation, game director Shu Takumi also had a message for fans during the showcase as well. You can check out what he said along with the trailer itself below.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective sees you take on the role of Sissel – he’s investigating a murder from the unique position of being the victim.

Waking up as a ghost in a junkyard, it’s up to you to use your new ghostly powers to both investigate the crime, and manipulate the environment in order to uncover clues and progress through the story.

The remaster will include a bunch of updates and new features to the DS original – including of course an upgrade to the game’s visuals to support 1080p and 60fps.

In addition, these remasters will be tailored to each new platform – with touch controls on the Switch, for example – and include some brand new to console Ghost Puzzles.

There’ll also be an extras menu, featuring a bevvy of bonus content including brand new artwork and music produced and rearranged since the game’s original DS release in 2010.

The game would later get a release on iOS in 2012, and the game’s lead developer happens to be Ace Attorney creator, Shu Takumi.
