Zero Escape creator’s next game is a mysterious detective story

Kotaro Uchikoshi’s latest recruits Fire Emblem designer for help

After finishing his Zero Escape trilogy in 2016 with Zero Time Dilemma, creator Kotaro Uchikoshi has been keeping his follow-up under wraps. At this week’s Anime Expo, however, Spike Chunsoft showed the first teaser for Uchikoshi’s next game: AI: The Somnium Files.

The minute-long teaser for AI: The Somnium Files doesn’t tell us much. Here’s what we can gather: A detective named Kaname Date is on the case in a high-tech version of Japan that has bountiful mysteries to solve.

The character designer is Yusuke Kozaki, which is great news for anyone who’s played No More Heroes or Fire Emblem Awakening.

Anything else we know? That’s pretty much it. When’s AI: The Somnium Files out? No clue. We do know the game will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, whenever it does launch.

Until then, the entirety of the excellent Zero Escape trilogy is playable on PlayStation 4.
