AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative Hidden Bats ARG Progress; Kairo & Iris Decision Game

The AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative Hidden Bats ARG has genuinely heated up once more. The official Hidden Bats Twitter account has initiated a poll to save either Kairo Goshiki or Iris Sagan. It is undeniably simple, and I can’t help but wonder what will possibly happen if Kairo wins. Iris has a presence in the actual AI: The Somnium Files games, so will she survive regardless? I’m hoping to see Kairo win this poll so we can see what mysteries lie beyond that veil.

You can participate in this ongoing poll below. Note that it concludes tomorrow at 7 PM PDT/ 10 PDT.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated regarding this next phase of the Hidden Bats ARG.

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.
