Like other works from Spike Chunsoft, Master Detective Archives: Rain Code has its own chapters list. As part of the World Detective Organization, you’re tasked to solve a mystery per chapter. You could be curious as to the chapters list in Master Detective Archives.

Read on as we show you how many chapters there are, the Master Detective Archives: Rain Code chapters list, the side quest you can find in the chapters, and how long it’ll take to beat.

How Chapters in Master Detective Archives: Rain Code?

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code has 6 chapters in total. This doesn’t include the prologue and epilogue of the game which are much shorter than the official numbered chapters.

If you’ve played Danganronpa before, six chapters should sound about right for a Spike Chunsoft game. It may sound like a small number but some of these chapters can take up to 8 hours to complete. That’s longer than some modern games being sold nowadays.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Chapters List

Here’s the chapter list in order:

  • Chapter 0: Massacre on the Amaterasu Express
  • Prologue: WDO vs Amaterasu Corporation
  • Chapter 1: The Nail Man Killings
  • Chapter 2: A Silent Curtain Call
  • Chapter 3: No Longer a Detective
  • Chapter 4: The Imperfect Insider
  • Chapter 5: And Then I was Gone
  • Epilogue: Rain Code

The chapter list structure of Master Detective Archives is a bit strange. For starters, the Prologue comes after Chapter 0 and not before. In other games, Chapter 0 and Prologue would usually mean the same thing but not in this game. Unlike the Prologue, Chapter 0 is a full chapter just like the other numbered chapters.

Each of the Master Detective Archives chapters is replayable. After beating the game, you’ll unlock Chapter Select which can be accessed from the Main Menu. This will allow you to tackle the chapters again and complete any side quests you may have missed.
