Vampire Rain

Part 1: Box art for the PS3 version + Character Bios from the manual - Nebiros

Not the greatest quality, my scanner's packed away in a box somewhere and I'm not 100% sure where the hell I put the capture card, so I'll try getting it to run another way.

But for now, have some pictures.

And for shits and giggles, the story and bios from the manual -

The game posted:

Every year, millions of people disappear around the world. Why do they go missing? And where do they go?

For years, the existence of Nightwalkers has been concealed form civilians. The truth, however, is that their existence is as real as those who have fallen victim to them. Until now, these unfortunate victims have all been classified as simply "missing."

It has taken nearly one hundred years for mankind to understand the true nature of the Nightwalkers. Not only are these beings unable to restrain themselves from attacking, but they are capable of an immeasurable amount of damage. Humanity can no longer risk a passive approach against them.

In response to this criss, the American Information Bureau (AIB) has secretly established a special combat unit as a defensive measure. Its mission: to wipe out the Nightwalkers.

A strangely sweet aroma emanates from a city on the west coast of the United States. AS the Nightwalkers' senses dull from the rain that has begun to fall, a battle unfolds. A battle that must not be lost...
