Japanese developer Spike Chunsoft has revealed AI: The Somnium Files - nirvanA Initiative, and upcoming mystery detective adventure coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S in Spring 2022.
A follow up to AI: The Somnium Files, which released on other platforms in 2019 but didn't make its way to Xbox, nirvanA Initiative follows Mizuki, one of the main characters from the first game, now turned protagonist and recently appointed Special Agent. Along with her AI partner Aiba, she is tasked with solving a series of bizarre serial killings.
“Six years ago, the right half of a corpse was discovered under mysterious circumstances,” reads the official story synopsis. “The left half was never found...until six years later, when it was discovered completely fresh with no signs of decay, as though the victim was alive until just recently.”
The game is being developed by the Zero Escape team, with Kotaro Uchikoshi returning to pen the story, and Akira Okada moving into the role of Game Director. We don't have too much more information on what to expect from the game, but you can check out the announcement trailer down below.
AI: The Somnium Files - nirvanA Initiative launches on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Spring 2022.
