Switch, PS4, PC game launches in September in N. America, Europe, Japan
Spike Chunsoft began streaming a new introduction trailer in English and Japanese on Thursday for Kōtarō Uchikoshi's new AI: The Somnium Files game. The trailer highlights the game's investigation mode.
The game will launch in North America on September 17 for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam, and will release in Europe physically and digitally for PS4 and Switch on September 20. The release will include English and Japanese audio and English text. The game will launch in Japan on September 19.
The game's "Special Agent Edition" will include a six-inch-tall A-set acrylic stand, an outer box, an artbook, a soundtrack, and three vinyl stickers. The Day One Edition will include two vinyl stickers.
The visual novel is set in modern-day Tokyo, but with some technology advancements. Players play as Kamane Date, a detective tracking down a serial killer performing bizarre murders. Date has an artificial left eye, differently colored from his right eye, which contains an AI that helps him solve crimes. A key feature of the game is Date's ability to delve into the memories of suspects and key witnesses, exploring places called "Somnium" (Latin for "dream").
