Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Receives New Gameplay Trailer; Character Illustration Show Off Yuma and Shinigami

Spike Chunsoft released a new trailer for their upcoming adventure game, Master Detective Archives: Rain Code, coming to Nintendo Switch in Spring 2023 for $59.99. The game will also receive a Limited Edition for $109.99.

The new trailer introduces Shinigami; the death god contracted to haunt the game’s protagonist, Yuma. Players get a preview of the adventure mechanics and narrative, which I feel like a lot of people have been eager to see more of.

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. The 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.

The gameplay comprises exploration throughout the Kanai Ward, which is entirely 3D. Players will have to examine several crime scenes and other locations alongside interviewing involved parties. Hidden clues are emphasized as being hidden via specific camera angles.

We’ll keep you updated on the release of Master Detective Archives: Rain Code.
