Spike Chunsoft has released a new gameplay video for AI: The Somnium Files that provides some details on some of the game's features.
The Somnium part of gameplay takes place in the world of dreams. Here you must enter the dreams of a person of interest to find clues for the investigation.
- Mental Locks – To find clues, you must solve the mental locks blocking the way. Sink deeper into a person’s subconscious to find the truth!
- Six-Minute Time Limit – You only have six minutes in Somnium to interact with the environment. You will have a variety of items to investigate, but time is spent whenever an action is performed, so choose wisely.
Set in a near-future Tokyo, AI: The Somnium Files follows the story of Kaname Date, a detective from the Metropolitan Police Department who is on the case of a mysterious serial killer. Date must investigate crime scenes as well as dreams on the hunt for clues. From the mind of Kotaro Uchikoshi (Zero Escape series director), with character design by the Yusuke Kozaki (NO MORE HEROES, Fire Emblem series), a thrilling neo-noir detective adventure is about to unfold.
AI: The Somnium Files will launch on the 25th of July on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
