Master Detective Archives: Rain Code - Why Is Nintendo Switch The Exclusive Platform?
- Feb 05, 2023
Nintendo Switch fans are delightedly counting down the days until the release of Master Detective Archives: Rain Code, a mystery adventure title developed by Too Kyo Games and Spike Chunsoft. With the game's development team sharing many members with the popular Danganronpa series, many fans of the franchise are eager to play the dark fantasy mystery game. But why is Master Detective Archives: Rain Code an exclusive to the Nintendo Switch?
Kazutaka Kodaka, one of the writers of Master Detective Archives: Rain Code and a former Spike Chunsoft employee, talked about the reasons for the game's exclusivity for the Nintendo Switch. Distinct from the high-definition graphics and CGI that characterize other games, Kodaka believes that by limiting the game to the Switch, it won't be "buried and lost" in the face of competition from games in categories like A and AA. This is because the game focuses primarily on story, and the appealing visuals are well-suited for the Switch handheld console.
As for the game itself, Yuma Kokohead is the main protagonist of Master Detective Archives: Rain Code, a kind of novice detective trying to put a stop to the strange happenings in town involving Mystery Phantoms in a Mystery Labyrinth. Co-starring Shinigami, a ghostlike “Puffy Death God” that can transform herself, the game is expected to have a more lighthearted theme than the Danganronpa series, which is known for its robotic teddy bear forcing a group of high school students to murder one another.
In conclusion, while Master Detective Archive: Rain Code shares much of its development team with the popular Danganronpa series, the game appears to have a different and more lighthearted theme than the murder-thriller of the latter. Its story-focused approach and visuals make the Nintendo Switch the perfect platform for Master Detective Archives: Rain Code and players can eagerly await its launch for an unforgettable adventure.
