Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony had a pretty long playtime, clocking in at around 40 hours or more to see everything. This may raise the expectations of fans looking forward to creator Kazutaka Kodaka’s newest game Master Detective Archives: Rain Code, well, at least when it comes to the runtime. So if you were wondering how long you will likely be solving cases for, I’m here to help you out.
Master Detective Archives: Rain Code takes place across 5 Chapters, along with a Prologue and Epilogue. Each chapter highlights a new mystery as you assume the role of Yuma alongside his partner Shinigami. Together, the two work with other Master Detectives who each fave a unique Forte that assists with the investigation.
Each chapter’s length varies, but the entire game can be completed in around 25 hours. However, this does not include collecting all of the hidden Trophies, which unlock special side episodes accessible within the main menu. These give players a chance to view extra character-specific dialogue to learn more about their friendships.
Titled the Gumshoe Gab, players can watch through 25 short stories surrounding the cast of characters. Each of the detectives gets 5 episodes available. Looking for these trophies can extend the playtime by a few hours. Thankfully, they’re supported with voice-over, so you can view them as short anime clips and play them on auto if you want.
Master Detective Archives: Rain Code has players control an amnesiac detective who is followed by a Shinigami and solve cases by examining crime scenes and evidence. Shinigami will create a realm connecting the crime scene to the truth. Mystery Phantoms will try to impede your progress, and defeating them by utilizing the truth is the only way to go.
Master Detective Archives: Rain Code is available now on Nintendo Switch.
