Spike Chunsoft published new information for the upcoming sequel to AI: The Somnium Files in Japan. It announced that AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative will have two protagonists. The new images reveal that the man in the game’s key art is in fact a protagonist on an equal footing with Mizuki. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
The male protagonist Ryuki is a rookie Psyncer affiliated with ABIS. He has a more reserved and calm personality. Though he is known for his high academic grades, he has no family as he has lost his parents and younger brother. Atsushi Tamaru will provide the Japanese voiceover for this character.
The woman with black attire is Tama, who is an AI-Ball, just like Aiba. She will accompany Ryuki as his assistant. Spike Chunsoft describes Tama as a rather interesting character who likes to encourage Ryuki by striking him. Ai Kakuma will voice this character in Japanese.
Spike Chunsoft also shared new artworks for the main characters, including the new protagonists, in nirvanA Initiative. It also confirmed that Tama will have a chibi form as well.
AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative will release worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Spring 2022.
