Wired: Sissel isn’t having a very good day. He can’t remember who he is, where he is, or anything about his life. Also, he’s dead.
Fortunately, he hasn’t disappeared from the earth just yet. Rising from his lifeless body as a ghost, Sissel discovers that he can now possess and manipulate objects, using them to affect the world of the living and influence the course of events both past and present. If he finds a fellow corpse, he can travel backward through time in order to change history and prevent that person from dying in the first place.
That’s the premise of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, a Nintendo DS game released Tuesday.
