Ghost Trick Phantom Detective DSCapcom’s Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective has a lot in common with the Ace Attorney series. They share a designer – Shu Takami. They both are adventure games. Both have main characters setting out to help people and do what’s right. And now, they have one more similarity – they both were ported to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is only just making it’s Japanese iTunes debut this week. Anyone who waited and didn’t get the DS version will be getting a great deal. Capcom is releasing the first two chapters as a free download, to hook people in. Then, if people like what they’ve played, they can buy the full game for ¥1,500 (~$18) or get a few three chapter packs for ¥600 (~$7). It’s identical to the DS game, just chopped up a bit and a lot cheaper.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is the story of Sissel, a man who wakes up and finds he’s a ghost. He’s dead and doesn’t know why. So he goes through an assortment of cases and adventures, saving other people from death and learning more about who he was and why he died. It debuted on the DS in Japan on June 19, 2010 and will be released in North America on January 11, 2011.

Though Capcom hasn’t made any announcements yet, I think it will bring the iOS Ghost Trick port overseas. It did the same with the Phoenix Wright iOS ports and those did pretty well. It will probably be a while though, maybe even a year. After all, it took six months for the iOS port to arrive in Japan.
