Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE Manga Volume 1 Now Available in Japan

Spike Chunsoft and Kadokawa have announced that the first volume of the Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE manga is now available in Japan for ¥693. Comprising 164 B6-sized pages, this series seems to be a loose adaptation of the game, which has become quite popular.

There is no word on a potential Western release.

You can purchase this volume physically or digitally or view a preview of it via Kadokawa’s official online storefront.

In case you missed it, the Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE – While Awaiting Yuma novel will launch in Japan next week.

Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE has players control an amnesiac detective who is followed by a Shinigami and solves 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.

The first DLC episode, “Ch. Desuhiko: Charisma Killed the Cat,” was released.

You can purchase the Season Pass for $16.00 to save roughly four bucks and get each of the four DLC episodes as they launch.
