...but I told you so. Ghost Trick, that excellent story based point-and-click-esque game has been forgotten, and I told you all that would happen.
Takumi said he wanted to make more if the fans asked for it, and instead, you said "no, don't make a new one, this one is perfect!" You are aware that just because a new one exists the old one doesn't die, right?

And I tried to tell you this years ago. Now, Ghost Trick has been mostly forgotten, and I partly blame you, the audience, for that fate.
So yes, actually. I do want to say "I told you so." Because I did tell you so.
Serve the Story - that's one of my rules.

I... don't think that's how it works.

If something doesn't sell well, then sequels don't get made. Even if the fans of the series did ask for a sequel, but the overseas numbers were poor, then Takumi wouldn't be able to pitch a sequel idea to Capcom. Ghost Trick did pretty well in Japan, but less so overseas it seems. Take DGS as a recent example. Takumi clearly wanted a DGS 3, but because of poor sales, he was only allowed until DGS 2, and with a reduced budget at that.

If a game is poorly marketed, then not enough people know what it is, then it's not gonna have as many fans. Fewer fans means fewer people asking for a sequel. That's not the fault of the fans for not asking hard enough, that's the fault of the company for doing a bad job of selling their product.

I knew all that. I'm mostly just venting. I don't actually blame you guys, though I do think maybe we should have done more to advertise this game to other people. We can pick up the slack if a publisher does a bad job, and I don't think we did a good enough job here. (I am not excluding myself here. Bad me. Bad.)

The real Trick was that he Ghosted us when we asked for more.
