Kodaka will be joined by Danganronpa composer Masafumi Takada and illustrator Rui Komatsuzaki. No further information has been provided and platforms have yet to be announced. However, Spike Chunsoft and Too Kyo have opened up teaser websites in both English and Japanese, suggesting a global release.
The English website states that Enigma Archives: Rain Code is pending rating by the United States’ Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), but the developer believes that it’s “likely” to receive a 17+ mature rating due to content that might not be appropriate for children.
Too Kyo Games was announced back in 2018 and is led by Kodaka and Zero Escape series creator Kotaro Uchikosh among other industry veterans.
“The object of this company is to do something new, which is the creation of a new IP commonly known all over the world and in a future we will make indie games by ourselves,” Kodaka said at the time. “This new company enables us to move freely towards the goal.”
One of the projects that Spike Chunsoft and Too Kyo teased at the time was a dark fantasy mystery, and it seems that the companies were referring to Enigma Archives: Rain Code.
“We imagine a kind of cyberpunk world from this art,” according to a description provided to Famitsu in 2018. “Komatsuzaki designs the characters, [illustrator] Shimadoriru designs background, and Takada directs the sounds.”
