Meet the Characters of AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES

Spike Chunsoft have released new details for the upcoming game AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES; this time introducing potential players to the unique cast of characters (and the respective English & Japanese voice actors) that players will meet.

The key characters introduced are:

Kaname Date:
VA: Greg Chun (English)/ Taruske Shingaki (Japanese)

As a Psyncer, Date uses the Psync machine to dive into the minds of suspects or persons of interest. He lost his eye six years ago, but replaced it with a prosthetic eye which houses an advanced artificial intelligence known as an AI-Ball. He also lost all his memories past six years ago.

Aiba (2nd Form):
VA: Erika Harlacher (English)/ Akari Kito (Japanese)

An artificial eye equipped with an AI that usually resides in Date’s left eye socket. Her consciousness and Date’s are linked. In the real world, she looks like a small animal. However, when Date Psyncs to enter Somnia, she takes on a human form.

Boss:
VA: Allegra Clark (English)/ Yuko Kaida (Japanese)

Boss is Date’s direct superior and long-time friend. She appears to be an easygoing optimist with a carefree attitude, but she is as cunning as a fox with a quick wit.

Pewter:
VA: Sean Chiplock (English)/ Hiroki Goto (Japanese)

Pewter is ABIS’s engineer and a brilliant scientist. Currently, he is responsible for maintaining the Psync machine and preparing Psyncs. He also invented Aiba (and set her personality to his liking).

AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES is expected to be released on the 25th July 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC; with a Limited Edition being released in North America. European release details have yet to be fully confirmed.
