Video: The World of Rain - New PlayStation 3 Trailer Arrives

50°
44w ago - Sony Senior Producer Florence Kum shared a new PlayStation 3 trailer video today on the world of Rain on PS3 with details below.

To quote: Hello everyone. Can you remember back in the days when you had time to just sit and dream? Sit and listen to the sound of raindrops against your window, or even watch it form patterns against the outside world?

Rain is the story of an invisible world revealed by falling rain, and the lost creatures that come alive when the clouds roll in. This unique game casts you as a little boy who finds himself lost.

He saw a little girl's silhouette outside in the downpour, but when he went out to find her, he became invisible like her. Now, he must make his way through this world, and since players can only see the character when rain falls on him.

We're pleased to reveal a concept video we have been working on which brings the game to life, playing with your imagination and emotions. Let us know your thoughts!





Also, please don't forget the exclusive pre-order goodies we have lined up for you. This is now up and [Register or Login to view links] on PlayStation Store until 1st...

49w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi posted up a new Rain video trailer today alongside revealing the official release date and PS3 pre-order bonuses below.

To quote: Today, we're very excited to announce that rain will launch on October 1st on PlayStation Store for $14.99 in North America! To celebrate the news, we're sharing the second developer diary from the team at Japan Studio and PlayStation C.A.M.P., so watch and enjoy.

From the early stages of the production cycle, we've always felt that music is one of the most important elements in creating the world of rain. In this developer diary, Yugo Kanno – who handled all aspects of the composition and arrangements – explains what initially inspired him when introduced to the project, and his experiences while composing the music.

We were also extremely fortunate to work with Connie Talbot, an up-and-coming vocalist from the UK who made her debut on Britain's Got Talent back in 2007. In the interview seen in the video, Connie shares her excitement and the unique challenges faced during the recording.





We're also pleased to announce a pre-order that you can pick up now until September 30th on the PlayStation Store that will offer a few pieces...

We'll be introducing many new features, including monster taming, an advanced battle system with new combo attacks, new dungeon action elements, a new dialog and emoticon system, new treasure hunt quests, an improved side quest system, explorable buildings, and new mini-games.

Rain: The Story Behind 2013's Most Intriguing PSN Release

100°
60w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared details today on the Rain: the story behind 2013's most intriguing PSN release below.

To quote: Hopefully you found the time last week to take a look at the haunting new trailer for Rain - the new adventure game from Japan Studio heading to PlayStation 3 later this year.

It's shaping up to be one of the most intriguing PSN titles of the year, channeling the same sense of freewheeling creativity that made Journey, The Unfinished Swan and Tokyo Jungle such stand-out experiences.

The setup is simple - you play as a lone boy who finds himself alone in a mysterious rain-soaked city. The twist? He's completely invisible, except for the outline of the precipitation running off his body.

You'll guide him through this strange world as he goes in pursuit of a girl who's seemingly suffering the exact same predicament, while also trying to evade malevolent hostile forces.

I sat down with the game's producer Noriko Umemura when she was in London last week and dug a little deeper into this fascinating title.

PlayStation.Blog: Rain has one of the more unusual set-ups in recent memory. Where did the idea come from?

Noriko Umemura: When we gathered together, we had one thing in common - we wanted...
