All Articles: Rain
The rain has begun to fall on the PlayStation Store as Sony Japan’s PS3 adventure game, Rain, is now available to download. The story of two invisible children who have to find their way out of a city, Rain has received considerable attention for its moody and atmospheric visuals. Also available this week is NBA 2K14 (PS3), the latest game in the popular basketball franchise.
What else is available this week for the PS3? Well, there’s Flashback, Ubisoft’s HD remake of the renowned side-scrolling; Pro Foosball, a video game version of everyone’s favorite bar game; and Skydive: Proximity Flight, a skydiving sim. Finally, PS3 owners will get a chance to download the PS2 Classic Fatal Frame III: The Tormented.
Over on the Vita side, this week sees the release of Atelier Meruru Plus: The Apprentice of Arland. The RPG is now available in portable form and with all of its previously released DLC expansion content. And last, but not least, we’ve got Die! Die! Die!, a game that asks players to invade the human body to destroy malicious microbes. Because that’s totally how being a doctor works.
Sony has announced that Rain, their stylish puzzle platformer in development at Sony Japan, will be released on October 1. In North America, the game will be priced at $14.99.
In addition to the release date news, Sony has released a new Developer Diary for Rain focusing on composer Yugo Kanno and vocalist Connie Talbot.
Rain, a title in development at Sony Japan Studio and Acquire, might trigger a few memories of Ico thanks to its newest trailer, “Two Silhouettes.” A pair of invisible children are only seen when it rains and they must work together to escape the towering city they’re stuck in. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also this:
As the boy chases after the girl, he enters the mysterious world of rain and learns that he has also become invisible. In the pouring rain, he is lost and frightened as he is hunted by ghostly creatures. But, his determination to save the girl only grows stronger and he presses on.
Rain will be released for the PS3 this Fall, but first it’ll make an appearance at this year’s E3 Expo.
When Sony registered several domain names related to “rain,” many assumed it had something to do with Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain. Instead, the publisher revealed Rain at Gamescom, a new and beautiful title from Sony’s Japan Studio. In the trailer, we’re introduced to an invisible boy who can only be seen outside in the rain. When he wanders inside or under shelter, players can only see him via footprints or by objects that move as he touches him.
With a similar concept to Hudson Soft’s inspired, but clumsily executed, Wii title Lost in Shadow, Rain looks to be a PlayStation Network exclusive. While little other information was revealed, the trailer shows the protagonist being chased by other wet, ghostly figures. And during his flight, he appears to be looking for someone else, possibly a little girl.
Rain currently doesn’t have a release date, but Sony has promised more information will be revealed soon.
