AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative follows dual protagonists Mizuki and Ryuki as they investigate a strange murder case. Though police were only able to find the right half of the victim’s body, the left half appears out of nowhere at the start of the game. Both protagonists, along with their AI companions, must solve the strange Half Body killings along with the mysterious nirvanA Initiative.
The trailer gives fans a glimpse into some of the story’s premises, as well as a loot at the new protagonist Ryuki. The trailer focuses on dreams and reality, the core aspects of the Somnium Files series. It also shows off pretty bizarre visuals, from vaporwave-esque backgrounds to some eerie 3D models.
