Numskull Games and Spike Chunsoft have teamed up to release AI: The Somnium Files at retail in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
This neo-noir detective adventure game from Zero Escape series director Kotaro Uchikoshi is 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.
“It is an honour to announce Spike Chunsoft as a partner of Numskull Games,” enthuses Numskull Games managing director Martin Defries.
“We have a deep understanding and appreciation of the games that Spike Chunsoft deliver to their many fans and are looking forward to revealing their exciting lineup of future releases across Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.”
Spike Chunsoft president and CEO Mitsutoshi Sakurai adds: “We are thrilled about our new partnership with Numskull Games. Our teams have a shared mission to deliver exciting, cutting-edge gaming content and experiences. We cannot wait to show our passionate community what we have in store for the future.”
AI: The Somnium Files will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand on September 20th.
