Famitsu released a new interview with Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE producer Kazutaka Kodaka revealing the game’s development is 60% complete. Pre-orders for the limited edition are available now.

Spike Chunsoft producer Sakakibara Shohei shared a message in the new Famitsu issue, confirming more news about the game is coming later this year:
“Ever since we announced RAIN CODE, the staff has been hard at work and development’s progressing bit by bit. Keep an eye out for further info later this year!”
Here’s an overview of the upcoming detective adventure game via Spike Chunsoft:
About Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE
Yuma, an amnesiac detective-in-training, and Shinigami, the spirit haunting him, tackle unsolved mysteries in a strange city caged by unending rain.
Master Detectives vs. Megacorporation
A city of rain is gripped by innumerable unsolved mysteries, under the complete control of a megacorporation. Master Detectives from around the world, each possessing unique powers, must rise to the challenge of uncovering the truth. With Shinigami by his side, Yuma joins the investigation as a trainee of the detective agency. Travel freely within the fully 3D environment of the city to gather evidence and testimonies.
Enter the Mystery Labyrinth, a Unique and Offbeat Puzzle-Solving Experience
As the investigation progresses, a realm known as the Mystery Labyrinth will appear, creating a path toward the truth. Once inside, however, the mysteries shrouding the case materialize as gimmicks and traps, lying in wait to consume Yuma. The rules of reality don’t apply here: delve into the ever-changing Mystery Labyrinth and get to the heart of the case.
But that’s not all! Monstrous Mystery Phantoms will do whatever it takes to prevent Yuma from reaching the truth. Dodge their barrage of lies and slash the contradictions to pieces with the Solution Blade!
Lastly, Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE releases in Spring 2023 for Nintendo Switch.
