Release Date and Platforms

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code hit the shelves on June 30, 2023, and let me tell you, it was worth the wait. Initially released for the Nintendo Switch, the game has since expanded its horizons. An enhanced version is set to release for PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S on July 18, 2024, in Japan, and October 1, 2024, worldwide. Sorry, mobile and PSP fans, this gem isn't available on those platforms, but it's a treat on the ones it's made for.

Game Price

If you're looking to pick up Rain Code, the standard edition for the Nintendo Switch is priced at a cool $29.99. For hardcore fans, the Digital Deluxe Edition will set you back $89.99. It's a steal for the hours of gameplay you get.

Game Review

Now, let's talk turkey. The game is a solid 8.1/10 on my scale. It's a fantasy-mystery adventure that takes you through six chapters of pure detective work. You play as Yuma Kokohead, an amnesiac detective-in-training, solving cases with the help of a god of death, Shinigami. The gameplay alternates between the real world and the Mystery Labyrinth, a dungeon formed from the mysteries surrounding a case.

The graphics? Stellar. The storyline? Engrossing. And the characters? They're as eccentric as they come. But it's not all roses. Some gamers have found the Mystery Labyrinth sections a bit repetitive. Still, the narrative and mystery-solving are top-notch, making it a must-play for fans of the genre.

Personal Review

I remember the first time I entered the Mystery Labyrinth. I was both excited and nervous, knowing that every decision could lead me closer to the truth or into the clutches of a trap. It was like being a part of my own detective novel, and I couldn't get enough.
