Spike Chunsoft has released a new trailer for Master Detective Archives: Rain Code, a lucid-noir adventure game from the creators of Danganronpa! The trailer introduces players to the title’s protagonist, Yuma, and Shinigami, the death god haunting him.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code – Introduction Trailer:

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.

Meet Yuma and Shinigami

On Master Detective Archives‘ website, Spike Chunsoft has provided further information on both of the main characters.

Yuma (voiced by Lucien Dodge) – The protagonist suffers from amnesia. His background is unknown, but he was in possession of documents indicating that he was sent to Kanai Ward as a detective-in-training at an agency in the city. He participates in ongoing investigations. A lack of self-confidence results in a tendency to frequently complain. However, he possesses a strong sense of justice and selflessly tries to help anyone in need.

Shinigami (voiced by Anjali Kunapaneni) – A death god contracted to haunt Yuma. She usually appears in her spirit form. Only visible to Yuma, Shinigami is constantly floating and bobbing along at his side. Though cheerful and chatty, this death god’s sense of morality is quite far removed from that of humans. Her words and actions sometimes confuse Yuma. In the Mystery Labyrinth she transforms into a humanoid form and has the power to intervene in matters.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code is set to release exclusively on Nintendo Switch in spring 2023! For future updates on the title, stay tuned to RPGFan!
