'Flower, Sun and Rain' (NDS) Goes Gold

by Rainier on May 27, 2009 @ 1:30 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 the tropical island of Lospass sits a seaside resort called Flower, Sun, and Rain. On the surface, this island oasis resembles everything you would find on a picturesque vacation; swimming pools, the bright shining sun and an ocean paradise waiting to invigorate even the weariest of travelers. However, all is not as it seems at the Flower, Sun, and Rain Resort. While the tourists are busy soaking in the sun, a bomb has been detected on a plane docked at the island’s only airport.

Sumio Mondo, a searcher, has been urgently summoned to the island by the owner of the resort to help defuse the bomb before it interrupts the carefree island atmosphere. Upon his arrival, Sumio becomes caught in a time loop as the events of the same day are played out over and over again, each day culminating with an explosive end at the hands of the terrorists. With the aid of his trusty computer, Catherine, Sumio is able to tap into the minds of his subjects and hopefully stop the explosive device that threatens to destroy the entire island.

With a story and universe created by the infamous, award-winning game designer, Suda51, Flower, Sun, and Rain is unique, off-the-wall and completely unpredictable. The DS port includes 50 exclusive new puzzles and 18 mysterious scenarios contained within the rich storyline with a wealth of bizarre outcomes.

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.”
