Spike Chunsoft announced on Wednesday that Kōtarō Uchikoshi's new AI: The Somnium Files game has been delayed to September 17 in North America. The game was previously slated to launch worldwide on July 25 for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
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").
Another key character in the game is Iris Sagan, an 18-year-old high school girl with pink hair. She is a YouTube content creator who makes Let's Play videos (videos of a person playing through a game).
