'Soul Hackers 2' Details Launch Day DLC Plans - Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 10, 2022 @ 2:21 p.m. PDT

Soul Hackers 2 inherits the essence of Devil Summoner: Soul Hacker, while evolving the game concept with a more defined art style, addictive RPG gameplay and next-level storytelling.

Set in the Shin Megami Tensei universe, Soul Hackers 2 follows a brand new story about two Agents of Aion, Ringo and Figure, and their fight to stop the destruction of the world. 

In a war between devil summoners, it is up to Ringo and her team to decrypt destiny and save the world from apocalypse. Hack into this brand-new story to prevent the destruction of the world.

Inheriting the essence of the Devil Summoner series and Soul Hackers, the title returns after remaining dormant for 25 years with an elevated, evolved concept, chronicling a new tale of humans and technology.

The Protagonist, Ringo, an agent of Aion, must join forces with Devil Summoners to stop the world’s end. Utilize COMPs― special gadgets for devil summoners― to summon demons and wipe out enemies! The secret city districts known as Realms also feature facilities where you can fuse demons and modify COMPs.

Deepen your bond with your friends through interactions at the bar or in the hideout, and at times by retracing the past memories of summoners through vision quests. Will this group of outlaws living in the shadows of humanity be able to stop the world’s destruction?

Produced and directed by Eiji Ishida and Mitsuru Hirata, other featured staff includes music composed by MONACA, character designs by Shirow Miwa and Production Manager Shinjiro Takata.
