'Flower, Sun and Rain' (NDS) - 20 New Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 29, 2008 @ 12:18 p.m. PDT

Flower, Sun and Rain is an intriguing mystery adventure very much in the vein of Groundhog Day. You play a detective charged with locating and defusing a bomb by solving thought-provoking puzzles with a wealth of bizarre outcomes. Solving the mystery of what is happening to him and his surroundings is necessary before he eventually goes insane.

On a tropical island sits a seaside resort unlike any other called the Flower, Sun, and Rain resort. But all is not well in paradise as Sumio Mondo, a searcher, has been urgently summoned to the island by the owner of the hotel. Upon arrival, Sumio becomes caught in a time loop as the events of the same day are played out over and over again, with each day coming to an explosive end at the hands of some terrorists that have targeted the island for an unknown reason.

With the aid of Catherine, Sumio’s trusty computer that allows him to “jack” into the minds of his subjects as one of its many useful features, his job is to stop the explosive device that threatens to destroy the entire island. With the Flower, Sun, and Rain as his base of operations, Sumio travels the island questioning the residents and following up on clues in order to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Can Sumio solve the mystery in time to defuse the bomb? More importantly, can he figure out what’s happening to him and his surroundings before he eventually goes insane?

From the twisted mind behind Killer 7 and No More Heroes comes a mystery adventure title like no other. Originally released on the PS2 and quickly gaining notoriety for its eccentricity, Flower, Sun, and Rain had never been available outside of Japan until now. This updated NDS release features all the creative quirks that made the original a cult hit while adding Touch Screen functionality and 50 new puzzles in what’s sure to please loyal fans of its creator, “Suda51.”
