Ghost Trick release date confirmed

Nintendo to help Capcom with marketing.

DS adventure Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective will launch on 14th January 2011, Nintendo and Capcom have confirmed.

The game, which sees you take control of the spirit of recently murdered Sissel as he attempts to track down his assailant, is the latest effort from Ace Attorney creator and all-round puzzle adventure guru Shu Takumi.

With the 3DS due on shelves in March it could be one of the last big releases for Nintendo's handheld. Judging by the trailer below it looks like it could be a fitting send-off.

Nintendo certainly thinks so. It's signed up to help Capcom with sales, marketing and distribution, so expect this one to get a good push.

Takumi hasn't got much in the way of down-time to look forward to. He's just started work on Capcom/Level-5 showdown Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright for 3DS.
