ghost trick (By capcom and the makers of phoenix wright)

While Capcom's Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective isn't hitting U.S. DSs until January 11, the game will be expanding to iOS devices in Japan starting tomorrow.

The first two chapters will be available for free, and players can purchase additional three chapter sets for 600 yen each ($7.14). If you're confident in the whole game, you can buy it all for 1,500 yen ($17.85).

My guess is that Capcom will eventually bring the game to North American iOS devices, but it will let the DS have some exclusivity for a few months. After all, Capcom already went to the trouble of porting the code for iPhone and translating all of the dialog to English. Why not make some cash off of it? Plus, the company already brought over a port of the first Ace Attorney game to U.S. iPhones so there's a precedence.
