Spike Chunsoft's Master Detective Archives Receives Rare Discount At Amazon

Save big on this intriguing mystery game from the creative minds of the Danganronpa series.


If you're in the mood for a more cerebral gaming experience, then this deal on Master Detective Archives: Rain Code might be just what you've been looking for. Developed by Spike Chunsoft's Danganronpa team, Rain Code shares several similar themes with that cult-classic series of investigative adventures. This deal is for the Switch release of the game, which has been marked down by 33% to just $40, and you can even pair it up with another recent Switch release for more savings.

Billed as a 3D detective adventure written by Kazutaka Kodaka (World's End Club and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony), Rain Code puts you in the shoes of Yuma Kokohead, an amnesiac detective-in-training who solves crimes and is assisted by the god of death Shinigami. Set in both the real world and a fantasy realm, you'll need to use your wits and gather clues to solve the seemingly impossible mysteries in each of the game's six chapters.

Like other games from the Danganronpa team, Rain Code is a slick and stylish experience anchored by a cool art direction, compelling writing, an eccentric supporting cast, and a killer soundtrack. Amazon is also offering a few bundle deals with the game, as you can add either Sonic Superstars or Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life to your purchase.
