rain Arrives on PS3 Today

Dais Kawaguchi's Avatar Posted by Producer, SIEA

rain will be available for purchase today on PS3 for $14.99! Also, starting today, the full soundtrack for rain will also be available for $9.99, featuring the enchanting music created by composer Yugo Kanno and the gifted singer Connie Talbot.

To celebrate the launch of rain, we played through the game LIVE here on PlayStation.Blog and on Twitch earlier today. We hope you enjoyed the stream, and got a better feel for rain!

It’s been an amazing journey to bring the story of rain to life. Director Yuuki Ikeda initially had the idea to write a story about a boy who was invisible and could only be seen in the rain. Inspired by an experience he had as a child where he found himself lost, the story of rain has flourished into an emotionally dynamic adventure, brought to life by the talented team at PlayStation C.A.M.P.

Thank you for supporting rain, and we hope you enjoy playing!

I pre-ordered Rain a month and all I got was a static theme. I didn’t get any of the dynamic theme, avatars, montages just because I pre-ordered early? >:(

    Don’t worry, you’ll get all the other pre-order goodies too – just not until the tomorrow.

I feel like this game has kind of snuck up on me. Unfortunately I don’t have the money to purchase right now. I’m definitely going to get it at some point though. It looks amazing. :)

When is the review embargo up? It being so close to launch has me a bit nervous.

    Hi TriangleOffense,

    We apologize if there was a confusion.

So, your plan to celebrate the release of the game is to spoil it for everyone?

Street_Killaz said:

    Please find the answers to your Qs below.
    1: The musical montage will be different from the soundtrack and it will not be available to purchase after today.
    2: rain will be available when the PSN Store updates tomorrow, it will not be available at midnight :((

This would have been perfect on the Vita. Please consider a Vita version.

I-Almighty said:

September 30th, 4:39 pm

I’m really sad that I will not be able to purchase this due to the fact that I am currently jobless. But once I get a job I will buy Rain in a heartbeat.

I-Almighty said:

September 30th, 4:42 pm

Oh I forgot to say that this game looks stunning visually and it’s presentation and environments seem flawless. Nice job Dais!

White_Spear said:

Just pre-ordered mine! So excited to play this! Thanks PlayStation Blog for reminding me about this great game!

Cool game but I don’t like the price to me its over priced. I think I will wait it out until it hits $7.50 than snatch it up.

What’s up with the review embargo? I’ve been looking forward to this game but I’m getting nervous from the lack of reviews — in my experience, when a publisher restricts reviews pre-launch, that’s not a good sign ….

Egz-Onine said:

I wish the free codes were available through some other means than during a spoiler-cast. A game and soundtrack bundle would be sweet, too. It would be nice to buy a $20 PSN card and get both rather than buying $30 in cards and have $5 sitting there.

IrishDude2 said:

October 1st, 9:44 am

Why you doing a livestream? Wouldn’t that ruin the game?

lisatsunami said:

October 1st, 9:52 am

Good morning, Dais. Ready for the livestream. I’ll look away if it becomes too spoiler-y.

saveOURwhales said:

PainOfSarrow said:

lets get it started.

EaterOfWorlds78 said:

October 1st, 10:54 am

I preordered, but how do I download the game? I’m assuming it’s live now but when I try to download it, it just downloads the theme, which I already got when I preordered.

Kikohin said:

Wow, i really hope playstation does more livestreams like this, that was fun.

Elvick_ said:

October 1st, 11:38 am

@39: I asked in the stream if they were going to, and they said yes. Which is nice.

Along with streams, I hope Sony hand out codes to YouTubers popular for doing Let’s Plays. MS has been doing that lately.

dodgedoors said:

PainOfSarrow said:

October 1st, 11:45 am

Nightsintdreams said:

October 1st, 1:22 pm

I didn’t even realize that game was coming out until I saw a Tweet about it today…Am I too late to get the preorder bonuses if I buy it like right NOW? :(

SeanStrange said:

October 1st, 3:27 pm
