The Outbound Ghost is an adventure RPG about helping ghosts ascend to the afterlife. Battle the past using figments of your personality. Craft badges to earn abilities. Explore a town of troubled spooks and discover life can be tough, even when you’re dead.

While we don’t have a release date just yet, we do know this title is coming to Switch. While you wait, check out more gameplay details below.

Colourful characters: Meet a lovable cast of spooks along the way, each with their own story to unravel

  • Combat encounters: Unlock figments of your past personality, such as Regret, Benevolence, and Jealousy and use them as party members in turn-based battles
  • Badge system: Craft materials earned by winning combat encounters into badges, which can be equipped for various effects and stat boosts
  • A world in 2.5D: Adorable, paper-style characters inhabit a world with depth and detail to create a distinctly eye-catching visual style

In the world of The Outbound Ghost, ghosts are the embodiment of regret. Most people go to the afterlife after dying, yet those who were unhappy with their previous lives become ghosts and are forced to haunt the Earth until they right their wrongs. Of course, this is not always possible since doing this as a ghost is orders of magnitude harder than when you are a human. However, some manage to do this and are able to spend the rest of their deaths in the afterlife. In The Outbound Ghost, your task is to help others fix or come to terms with their past lives so that they can enjoy the pleasures of eternal bliss. You must achieve that for yourself too, but it’s not so easy to mend the mistakes of your past life when you don’t even remember them.

This is the second paper game posted today and they both look promising. I wonder if this one has any paper abilities though as they're not mentioned. Now if only Nintendo would decide if they want to do Paper Mario as an rpg or not, instead of it mostly being an adventure game with weird battle mechanics especially now that Alpha Dream is gone and no longer making Mario & Luigi games :(
