AI: The Somnium Files - nirvanA Initiative story characters

Spike Chunsoft has readied new information about AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative, and we have the latest on the game’s story and characters.

Here’s the full rundown:


Truth is only an illusion…

Six years ago, the right half of a corpse was discovered. The left half was never found… yuntil six years later, completely fresh with no signs of decay.

Now, Special Agents Mizuki and Ryuki, along with their AI partners Aiba and Tama, are tasked to solve the bizarre Half Body serial killings while unveiling the mysterious plot known only as the Nirvana Initiative…


Mizuki (VA: Corina Boettger in English, Tomoyo Kurosawa in Japanese) – ABIS’s new Special Agent (Psyncer)

A Psyncer who uses the Psync machine to infiltrate the brains of suspects and key witnesses. Mizuki lost her left eye and is now fitted with a replacement eye equipped with advanced artificial intelligence (the AI-Ball “Aiba”). Despite still being a high school student, her strong physical abilities and clever mind have earned her a special accommodation in ABIS.

Aiba (VA: Erika Harlacher in English, Akari Kito in Japanese) – Assistant Investigator

An autonomous AI that usually takes the form of an eyeball residing inside Mizuki’s left eye socket. Her job is to assist Mizuki during investigations by connecting to networks to gather information and using special functions such as X-ray and thermographs. Because she has been working as an assistant investigator for a long time, she is adept at reading human psychology and emotional states.

Ryuki (VA: Stephen Fu in English, Atsushi Tamaru in Japanese) – ABIS’s new Special Agent (Psyncer)

A rookie investigator with a strong sense of justice. However, he is not the hot-blooded type; he has a reserved and gentle nature. He is a well-educated young man. Unfortunately, both his parents and his brother have passed away… Fighting through his painful past, he aims to solve difficult cases with his partner, Tama, who is implanted in his left eye socket.

Tama (VA: Anairis Quinones in English, Ai Kakuma in Japanese) – Assistant Investigator

Like Aiba, she is an AI-Ball equipped with advanced artificial intelligence. She is usually found in Ryuki’s left eye socket and supports him in his work. She has a motherly quality to her, being both stern and kind (although she is 90 percent stern…). She inspires Ryuki by whipping his ass into shape. Purely coincidentally, she is also a sadistic character who literally enjoys whipping ass.

AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative will be ready to go on Switch this spring.
