New Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Trailer Premiering Tonight

The official Japanese PR Twiter account for the upcoming mystery adventure, Master Detective Archives: Rain Code, has announced that a new trailer will premiere today at 8 PM ET/ 5 PM PT via the Japanese Spike Chunsoft YouTube channel.

No details were shared regarding what to expect from this video, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

The tweet announcing this trailer’s incoming arrival is below:

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code is a new project by the Danganronpa team where one experiences a 3D detective adventure set in a neon city. The title is currently scheduled to release for Nintendo Switch in Spring 2023.

Players will 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.

The Mystery Labyrinth is a locale all players will rapidly become familiar with. It is a realm that houses mysteries of the real world, veiled by puzzles. The megacorporation controlling the real city can’t interfere with this place either. Further, the appearance of this area alters the more one progresses.
