Launch Trailer Showcases The Enchanting and Terrifying World of Rain

on September 30, 2013 12:02 PM

With Sony’s Rain available tomorrow, a new launch trailer has arrived to remind gamers just how enchanting and terrifying the world can be. Developed by PlayStation C.A.M.P. and conceptualized by Director Yuuki Ikeda, the game was created with the idea of an invisible boy who can only be seen in the rain, and the emotionally heavy experience of being a child who is lost and alone.

Tomorrow, Rain‘s soundtrack will also be available for $9.99, featuring the music of composer Yugo Kanno (any relation to multi-talented and revered anime composer Yoko?) and singer Connie Talbot.

Today will be the last day for gamers to pre-order the game, and receive the pre-order bonuses, which include five hand-drawn avatars, a musical montage, a static theme and a dynamic theme. Rain will be available on the PlayStation Network for $14.99. For those who miss pre-ordering, Sony will be hosting a livestream of the game via the PlayStation Blog and Twitch.TV tomorrow at 10:00 am PT, where viewers have the chance to receive a code to download the game for free.
