Just yesterday, Capcom announced that Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective was escaping its DS prison to find new life on the Switch in Summer 2023. Following that announcement, the company also shared a press release stating that a physical/digital release was in the works. Unfortunately, half of that statement was incorrect.

Capcom has since updated their press release for Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, and they removed mention of a physical release. It seems someone behind the scenes goofed, and this one is only going to be up to grabs through the Switch eShop.

Making its first appearance in North America in 2011, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective was directed and written by Shu Takumi. You take the role of Sissel, a phantom who wakes up with no memories and must unravel the mystery behind his death. Sissel utilizes his “Ghost” and “Trick” abilities to possess and manipulate objects in his search for the truth.
