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.
