Danganronpa Infected Master Detective Archives: Rain Code May Release PS5, PS4



Spike Chunsoft’s anime-influenced detective series Danganronpa was initially a huge hit on the PSP, before expanding to other platforms such as the PS Vita and PS4. But its spiritual successor, Master Detective Archives: Rain Code, it looks like it may skip PlayStation platforms – at least for now. The release date was the latest Nintendo Direct, this time there is no mention of any timer or console features. (A Previous trailer indicated that it would launch “first” on the Nintendo Switch.)

We checked with the developer to see if it has plans to bring the title to PlayStation anytime soon, but it told us in no uncertain terms that the release is “for Nintendo Switch only.” While its stance may soften over time, we were expecting a less concrete statement from the company, suggesting that the PS5 and PS4 may be off the agenda for now.

This is one area where Nintendo’s overall success in Japan has begun to affect PlayStation’s software lineup. While most Japanese games still target the PS5 and PS4, the smaller, better titles that were once the bread-and-butter of platforms like the PSP and PS Vita are beginning to be released elsewhere. Let’s hope RAIN CODE eventually tests Sony’s systems, regardless of what the publisher is saying right now.
