Following a recent reveal of new characters and the Digital Novel for Master Detective Archives: Rain Code (Enigma Archives: Rain Code) from Too Kyo Games and Spike Chunsoft, the publisher has revealed new areas, Mystery Labyrinth, Reasoning Deathmatch basics, and more with screenshots. Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Reasoning Deathmatch definitely reminds me of Danganronpa, but a lot of this game does as expected. Check out the screenshots and details via Spike Chunsoft below:

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code locations to explore

  • Kamasaki District: The liveliest, most bustling area in Kanai Ward. Many people reside here, and a variety of shops and stalls line the streets. It’s characterized by a very large number of stairs and pedestrian bridges, making it look like a multi-story structure. There’s also an underground passage leading to the riverbank.
  • Riverbank: A riverbank of the large river running through Kanai Ward. Due to Amaterasu Corporation’s business practices, the water itself is terribly polluted. The Nocturnal Detective Agency is currently located here after being evicted from a building in Kamasaki District.
  • Ginma District: The high-class commercial district. It looks orderly compared to Kamasaki District, and the blue lighting creates a calm atmosphere. There are cafes and restaurants, as well as landmarks like the art gallery with two dinosaur fossils in the public square, and the clocktower.
  • Kanai Station Square: The magnificent station serves as the gateway to Kanai Ward. It’s the only way into the isolated city, but the number of travelers is very limited. The front of the station is deserted.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Reasoning Deathmatch explained

The Reasoning Death Match is a direct confrontation with the Mystery Phantoms trying to prevent the mystery from being solved. The Reasoning Death Match will appear many times until the Labyrinth is conquered. If it’s a complex case involving various agendas, multiple Mystery Phantoms may appear. Although several mechanics are added as the game progresses, there are four basics of the Death Match. These are rebuttal, dodge, select solution key, and slash noise.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Mystery Labyrinth and puzzles

The design of a Labyrinth is influenced by the case being investigated, so the atmosphere will differ drastically each case. If the culprit sets up misleads and traps to prevent the case being solved, these will also be reflected in the Labyrinth, making it even more complex. In addition to the Reasoning Death Match against the Mystery Phantoms, questions that need to be answered will manifest into different puzzles. Multiple choice questions, solving a mystery with the correct Solution Key, as well as action-oriented sequences all appear.

The final box art for the game looks fantastic. Check out the official website here. Following the Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Switch new characters revealed today, I’m curious to see if we get a demo for the game in the lead up to its June launch. Hopefully this runs a lot better than the Danganronpa Decadence release did on Nintendo Switch when it released. 

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on June 30.
