After its announcement at Gamescom 2012 over eight months ago, everything went pretty quiet in regards to new any information for rain; an errie platforming effort from Sony‘s JAPAN Studio.

Well, after such a long silence, Sony have thrust the game back into the public eye; this time with a nearly six-minute long gameplay video which shows off the core gameplay that you can expect from the title.

Developed by Playstation C.A.M.P! the same crazies who brought us the quirky, but equally brilliant Tokyo Jungle, the gameplay premise in rain is simple; a world comes alive when the titular precipitation starts and when the rain falls, you need to avoid the rain monsters that appear and reach the end of the level.

Where the rain doesn’t fall however, you can become invisible and its by the act of skipping and in and out the rain that you can maintain a low-profile and avoid detection from the watery friends that surround you.

Liberally drenched (if you’ll excuse the pun) in a melancholy¬†aesthetic¬†and boasting a mixture of platforming and stealth mechanics, rain looks like it could be quite the hit for the PS3 when it releases later this year.

Take a look at the video after the jump and see for yourself.
