Spike Chunsoft has given a slightly unfortunate news regarding AI: The Somnium Files’ physical version release date for the Nintendo Switch in North America.
While the digital version is still on track for launch this month, September 17th, the physical version’s release will be delayed for a week. If you’re itching to get your hands on the lovely physical version, you’ll have to wait until September 24th.
According to Spike Chunsoft, this issue was caused by an increase in demand and manufacturing delays:
Spike Chunsoft regrets to inform the community that due to increased demand and manufacturing delays, the North American PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch physical releases of AI: THE SOMNIUM FILESwill not be available for retail until September 24, 2019. This also includes the Special Agent Editions.
The Steam (PC) release and digital releases on PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop will launch on September 17, 2019. Spike Chunsoft appreciates the community’s understanding and will continue to work hard to deliver the best products possible.
AI: The Somnium Files will be launching digitally on September 17 in the US and physically and digitally on September 19 in Japan. The game will launch on September 20 in Europe.
