Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE comes to Switch tomorrow, June 30th, 2023, which means you’ll get to meet the game’s cast of characters soon enough. One of the cast you’ll spend quite a bit of time with is Shinigami, a death god contracted to haunt the main character, Yuma.

Shinigami annoys Yuma with her mischievous antics, and feels no remorse in doing so. Her humanoid form has the gloomy yet glittery aura of a goddess of darkness! She also has a bit of a seductive flair, and that’s due to constant pushing from RAIN CODE writer, Kazutaka Kodaka.

In an interview with Famitsu, Kodaka thought the initial designs for Shinigami “weren’t showing a lot of skin,” so he requested that the team “make her sexier.” As to why Kodaka felt that Shinigami had to be amped up, we never learn those details. It’s clear he had some sort of vision in mind, but the rest of the team needed some help arriving at it.
