A deluge of Capcom media arrived from the Tokyo Game Show today -- so much, in fact, that we nearly forgot to tell you the Japanese publisher announced intentions to bring Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes and Ghost Trick to North America and Europe in 2010. Traditionally, the Sengoku Basara series (think Dynasty Warriors, but from Capcom) hasn't been published outside of Japan, but with the game's third installment Capcom has decided to bring the game worldwide for the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii (thrilling trailer above).
While we don't have any video for Ghost Trick (there are screens below), we know it comes from the same folks who worked on Capcom's Ace Attorney series. Apparently players will be controlling the ghost of a recently passed gentleman, piecing together clues to solve his own murder. That's some trick, you crazy ghost! Sorry, we're done channeling Brian Fellows now.
In Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, you are transported into the spirit world of Sissel, a murder victim who has lost his memory and returned as a ghost to solve the mystery of his suspicious demise. As Sissel's ghost, it's up to the you to possess and manipulate items found in the real world to take his time and have fun in solving the captivating puzzles he encounters. Using the stylus, you can manipulate inanimate objects in order to protect innocent victims and alter their fate. In order to save their lives, you will have many routes to choose from to scare off the victims' assassins - some more obvious than others. It's up to you to use strategy in order to choose the best path and solve the crime, but be warned that Sissel only has until dawn before he has to leave the supernatural world for good. As Sissel progresses through the game, the mystery of his own death will be revealed to him over time. Will you discover the truth before his time runs out?
