Danganronpa Successor Chou Tantei Jikenbo Raincode Revealed With Screenshots

Chou Tantei Jikenbo Raincode is handled by the Danganronpa team.

November 27, 2021

At the Danganronpa 10th Anniversary Event: Ultimate Class Reunion Event held on November 27, Spike Chunsoft revealed Chou Tantei Jikenbo Raincode, a brand new game by Kazutaka Kodaka.

Chou Tantei Jikenbo Raincode, which can be translated to “Ultimate Detective Case Files Raincode” is a collaboration project between Spike Chunsoft and Tookyo Games, the relatively new studio where the Danganronpa team currently resides.

Danganronpa’s composer and character designer Masafumi Takada and Rui Komatsuzaki are working on Raincode. Kazutaka Kodaka is writing the scenario. An official teaser site was opened, and Raincode is officially described as a “Dark fantasy mystery”.

Chou Tantei Jikenbo Raincode first screenshots

Several screenshots were revealed as well. You can clearly recognize the style of Rui Komatsuzaki, who is also currently working with Kodaka on extreme Basket anime Tribe Nine, coming in Spring 2022. A Tribe Nine 3D action game for smartphones is also in production, with no release estimate.

Tookyo Games released so far the games Death Come true and World’s End Club, and the anime series Akudama Drive. They’re all projects with the Danganronpa team.

A first key visual was shared, showing what seems to be the protagonist in cliche detective attire, and a female character in gothloli attire who’s probably the main Heroine with super powers. Moreover, we can spot several ghost-like creatures as well so there’s definitely some Fantasy going on in Raincode.

You can find the first screenshots for Chou Tantei Jikenbo Raincode below. Spike Chunsoft only announced Raincode in Japan right now. But it’ll obviously come to the West at some point seeing how incredibly mainstream Danganronpa managed to become. Spike Chunsoft didn’t announce any platforms or release date estimate yet. Stay tuned for more details coming in the future. We’ll probably get an announcement trailer soon as well.
