The next game from the makers of the Danganronpa series finally has a release date. Shown in the latest Nintendo Direct via a new trailer, Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE will be bringing its stylized take on mystery solving to Switch this June.



In it, we see some of the unique skills each master detective will bring, including the ability to fully disguise themselves and to “see” a recreation of a crime scene after it’s been committed.  

Outside of the Nintendo Direct, Spike Chunsoft shared details about the game’s physical editions. A new illustration for the game’s packaging was created by Rui Komatsuzaki (character designer for Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE) featuring its cast of characters and raising even further questions about the already fairly mysterious game. 



This will be the cover of the standard edition of the game. There will also be a Mysteriful Limited Edition and while it does include the standard physical game, it also comes with a few more goodies.




For $109.99, you’ll get the standard edition of the game plus a SteelBook, The Book of Death: Art Book featuring commentary from Kazutaka Kodaka, Rui Komatsuzaki and Shimadoriru, a limited edition exclusive Spirited 6.5″ Shinigami plush, Noise of Neon: Official Soundtrack composed by Masafumi Takada, and it’s all packaged in an outerbox with exclusive art from Rui Komatsuzaki.

The standard edition is available to pre-order on Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and Target. The Mysteriful Limited Edition is also available at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and Target while supplies last.

The mysteries behind Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE can be solved starting on Friday, June 30th.
