Director Shu Takumi, producer Shingo Izumi, and port director Atsushi Maruyama all just lately 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 wish to see a sequel, they stated, “The story of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is totally instructed on this single sport, so I believe it will be troublesome to create a sequel. Nevertheless, the powers of the lifeless that this sport introduces could maintain some risk.”
Izumi later added, when requested if there could be potential for a sequel in future if the remastered sport sells nicely: “Proper now, we’re dedicating all we’ve 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 sport is giant sufficient that it makes us wish to think about a sequel!”
So, there you will have it. If you need a Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective sequel sooner or later, you’ll wish to coerce every certainly one of your folks into taking part in the sport. This shouldn’t be too arduous, contemplating that Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is a superb sport that we’d say is without doubt one of the greatest Nintendo DS video games of all time; perhaps it’ll grow to be certainly one of 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 as we speak, to which Takumi shared that, “after we created the unique in 2010, movement seize wasn’t as extensively used as it’s as we speak. Over 90% of the animation in Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective was animated by hand. That most likely would not occur as we speak, however I believe as a result of it was made by hand, the motion is uniquely interesting.”
I discovered this significantly fascinating as a result of Takumi is right; it’s not usually that you just see new video games from giant studios that are solely, and even majority, hand-drawn. It additionally has me excited 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!
