Rain Code Manga Serialization Will Start in Late June 2023

A manga serialization for Master Detective Archives: Rain Code will start from June 30, 2023. That is the same date as the game’s release. It will appear in Weekly CoroCoro Comics, with Pageratta as the illustrator. It’s unclear if the serialization will cover events from the entire game. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

Pageratta is an artist who previously worked on series like 8LDK: Shisha no Ou and My Little Sister Split Apart. They also upload art onto Pixiv. It seems like Pageratta is only in charge of the illustrations. As mentioned earlier, it’s unclear at this point how far into the game the manga will cover. If Master Detective Archives: Rain Code is similar to the Danganronpa series, then there might be some twists in the story that might spoil the experience of the game.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code is an upcoming adventure video game by Too Kyo Games and Spike Chunsoft featuring the main creative team behind the Danganronpa series. It focuses on amnesiac trainee detective Yuma, who is being haunted by a spirit named Shinigami. He is part of the World Detective Organization, and Master Detectives who are part of the agency can use special powers like clairvoyance to solve crimes.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code will come out on June 30, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch. The manga for Rain Code will also start serialization on that date in Weekly CoroCoro Comics.
