Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE

Last year, publisher Spike Chunsoft made it clear that its new, Danganronpa-inspired title — Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE — would be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. However, something's changed over the last 12 months or so, because the game's now set to release for PS5 on the 18th July. It's possible that there was some kind of one-year exclusivity deal in place.

RAIN CODE sounds suitably mental, by the way. Again, it's from "the minds" that brought us the Danganronpa series, but it's being described as a "dark fantasy detective action game". It deals with paranormal happenings as well as dystopian themes, which involve megacorporations and the like. We're getting more information later this week, on the 9th May, so you can probably expect some fresh gameplay footage from the newly announced platforms.

Our friends over at Nintendo Life reviewed this one last summer, awarding it a respectable 7/10. "Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE is a solid follow-up to the Danganronpa franchise that demonstrates a heap of ambition from its developers and mostly lives up to its predecessor's impressive reputation," they wrote.
