Announced during the latest Nintendo Direct showcase, Master Detective Archives: Rain Code is the new detective action title from the minds behind the Danganronpa series.

Due for launch in Spring 2023 (the pre-order pages currently display a launch date of June 30th, 2023, but this is likely a placeholder), pre-orders for the game have now gone live and you can even splash out on a newly announced 'Mysteriful Limited Edition' for a cool $109.99. This will include a steelbook, an artbook, a 6.5" Shinigami plush, and an official soundtrack on CD. Pre-order links can be found at the bottom of the page.
