AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative Hidden Bats ARG Drama Amps Up; Mariha Monzen’s Fate Being Determined in 2 Days

The AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative Hidden Bats ARG has been getting rather spicy as of late, with the newly introduced characters, Mariha Monzen and Lumina Rikyu, getting into indirect arguments throughout their stays within their respective locked rooms.

Mariha has recently thrown a tantrum on her personal Twitter account, and seemingly in response, the official Hidden Bats Twitter account announced that her fate will be determined in 2 days on May 29, 2022, at 7 PM PDT/ 10 PM EDT. We’ll keep you updated on what occurs on that date.

The tweet announcing this upcoming development is viewable below:

AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative shows an event where the right half of a corpse was discovered, but the left half was never found until six years later. However, the body has shown no signs of decay, as though it’s only a day old. New special agent Mizuki and her AI partner Aiba are tasked to solve the Half Body serial killings. Kotaro Uchikoshi is confirmed to be the Scenario Writer. Hardcore fans can pre-order the game’s Collector’s Edition, which has a bunch of goodies.

AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative is releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC on June 24, 2022.
