Director Shu Takumi, producer Shingo Izumi, and port director Atsushi Maruyama all not too long ago sat down for an electronic mail interview with Sport Informer to debate how Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective got here to be, amongst many different issues, together with the chance for a sequel.
When requested if Takumi want to see a sequel, they stated, “The story of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is totally instructed on this single recreation, so I feel it will be tough to create a sequel. Nevertheless, the powers of the lifeless that this recreation introduces could maintain some risk.”
Izumi later added, when requested if there could be potential for a sequel in future if the remastered recreation sells nicely: “Proper now, we're dedicating all we've got to ship Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective to as many gamers as doable, so we haven’t had time to consider what we’re doing to do after that. I hope the quantity of people that play this recreation is giant sufficient that it makes us wish to think about a sequel!”
So, there you've it. If you need a Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective sequel sooner or later, you’ll wish to coerce every one in all your folks into taking part in the sport. This shouldn’t be too exhausting, contemplating that Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is a superb recreation that we might say is without doubt one of the finest Nintendo DS video games of all time; perhaps it’ll develop into one in all our greatest Swap video games of all time, too?
Sport Informer additionally requested about how the animation in Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective works, making it nonetheless look distinctive right now, to which Takumi shared that, “once we created the unique in 2010, movement seize wasn't as extensively used as it's right now. Over 90% of the animation in Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective was animated by hand. That in all probability would not occur right now, however I feel as a result of it was made by hand, the motion is uniquely interesting.”
I discovered this significantly attention-grabbing as a result of Takumi is right; it’s not typically that you simply see new video games from giant studios that are completely, and even majority, hand-drawn. It additionally has me desirous about Resort Nightfall: Room 215 on Nintendo DS, which makes use of rotoscoping to animate its characters. That is one thing that I haven’t seen since! I positively miss the NDS period and all of the distinct gems you’d discover on the console, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective included.
