Early-Game Preview for Master Detective Archives: Rain Code
The Nail Man Killings
A string of murders occurs reminiscent of Kanai Ward’s most famous urban legend, the “Nail Man.” The Nail Man is finally caught, but the suspect’s young son claims that his father was falsely accused by the Amaterasu Peacekeepers and seeks help from the detectives. Protagonist Yuma accepts the case and attempts to solve the mystery of the horrific locked-room serial killings.
Residents claim that the dense forest behind the church is the setting for the urban legend of the Nail Man. You will need to speak to members of the church in relation to the case.
A Silent Curtain Call
A student dies at Aetheria Academy. Not wanting to complicate matters, the Peacekeepers only conduct brief interviews with those involved before deeming it a suicide by jumping. The deceased student’s best friend Kurumi Wendy is not satisfied with their findings and asks Yuma to investigate. Yuma then sets out to find a way to gain access to the crime scene, an all-girls school.
The only girls’ school in Kanai Ward is located on top of a mountain, about 10 minutes by bus from Kamasaki District. It has a prestigious reputation and many of its students are children of Amaterasu Corporation employees. The school boasts a magnificent theater and devotes much of its resources to the theater club. Productions are held four times a year and are open to the general public.
