In Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, players control Sissel, a young man who, after awakening as a spirit, realizes he has no recollection of who he is or why he died.

“Who am I?”, “Who killed me?” and “Why was I killed?” are the existential quandaries he finds himself facing. The gameplay has you swap at will between the Land of the Living and the Ghost World and set off on a journey to find the truth to those questions.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective features high-quality gameplay updates, including enhanced graphics and framerates at 1080p 60fps. Further, compatible platforms take advantage of touch controls. In the Extras menu, players can now access a collection of newly recorded and arranged music tracks alongside unique illustrations.
