An Unsolved Case Early Game

The Nail Man Killings

A string of murders occurs reminiscent of Kanai Ward’s most famous urban legend, the “Nail Man.” The Nail Man is finally caught, but the suspect’s young son claims that his father was falsely accused by the Amaterasu Peacekeepers and seeks help from the detectives. Protagonist Yuma accepts the case and attempts to solve the mystery of the horrific locked-room serial killings.

All you’d need to do is write down the name of someone you hate, then make a doll resembling that person, nail the nametag to it, and leave it at the forest behind the church. This summons the Nail Man, who will kill that person for you. Or so the legend goes.

A Silent Curtain Call

A student dies at Aetheria Academy. Not wanting to complicate matters, the Peacekeepers only conduct brief interviews with those involved before deeming it a suicide by jumping. The deceased student’s best friend Kurumi Wendy is not satisfied with their findings and asks Yuma to investigate. Yuma then sets out to find a way to gain access to the crime scene, an all-girls school.

Moreover, two new areas were also introduced, quoted below:

Aetheria Academy

The only girls’ school in Kanai Ward is located on top of a mountain, about 10 minutes by bus from Kamasaki District. It has a prestigious reputation, and many of its students are children of Amaterasu Corporation employees. The school boasts a magnificent theater and devotes much of its resources to the theater club. Productions are held four times a year and are open to the general public.

The Church

Residents claim that the dense forest behind the church is the setting for the urban legend of the Nail Man. You will need to speak to members of the church in relation to the case.

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.

Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE will launch for Nintendo Switch on June 30, 2023.
