Between MAG and God of War III, Sony plans to release Heavy Rain in Japan. Multiple Japanese retailers, including Amazon, report Heavy Rain is scheduled for February 18.
Heavy Rain is a multi-protagonist adventure game from Quantic Dream, the developers of Fahrenheit. Norman (pictured) is one of the playable characters who scuffles with Mad Jack while investigating blood spots in a junkyard. Instead of dialing combos, players activate context sensitive commands that are sort of like rapid fire quick time events. Norman can die during the fight and if he does the story continues with another character.
Game Star’s product description says the twists and turns lead to over twenty endings.
