Hidden Bats ARG; The Lives of Lumina Rikyu & Mariha Monzen Depend on Their Follower Counts

It is time to determine two individuals’ fates yet again. The AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative Hidden Bats ARG has posted an update on its official Twitter account, providing the rules for how participants will impact the lives of Lumina Rikyu and Mariha Monzen.

The rules, which almost mimic the decision game that occurred between Aine Ichirai and Binato Sotobara, are viewable below:

Compare follower count of Mariha and Lumina. More followers is rescued. In a tie, both are rescued. Two lives hang in the balance. The choice is yours. Deadline: 5/30 7:00 PM PDT

Last time, Aine prevailed, with Binato’s existence vanishing. Will fans manage to get a tie this time around? I’m willing to bet no, but hey, miracles can happen. Then again, this is dependent on follower counts instead of likes and retweets, which are far more stable in comparison.

You can view the tweet announcing this new decision game 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.

AI: The Somnium Files is currently available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
