Spike Chunsoft has announced that AI: The Somnium Files’ physical release has been delayed in North America.
This is “due to increased demand and manufacturing delays,” and has also affected the AI: The Somnium Files Special Agent Edition.
These will now not be available for retail until September 24th, although the game will still be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop on September 17th.
AI: The Somnium Files is a neo-noir detective adventure game from Zero Escape series director Kotaro Uchikoshi, set in a near-future Tokyo.
You play as Metropolitan Police Department detective Kaname Date who is searching for a mysterious serial killer after a woman’s body is found in an abandoned theme park, mounted on a merry-go-round horse.
Stabbed repeatedly and with her left eye gouged out, you must solve the murder. That will see you investigate crime scenes and dreams in your hunt for clues.
Your only lead is a young girl who was discovered in the merry-go-round’s central column, gripping a bloody ice pick in her hands.
AI: The Somnium Files will release on the Nintendo eShop in North America on September 17th, and at retail on September 24th.
