Game News Summer Game Fest 2022: Soul Hackers 2, the role-playing game from Megami Tensei, available for pre-order

Soul Hackers 2, the next role-playing game from Atlus (Shin Megami Tensei, Persona), is back to talk about him as part of the Summer Game Fest 2022. On the program: a new trailer announcing the opening of pre-orders from today for a release date of August 26!

The sequel to Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, 25 years later…

No, we are not talking about a duration specific to the chronology of the game universe but of real years. Because it’s already been 25 years since the first Soul Hackers saw the light of day: it happened on Japanese Saturn consoles in 1997 (then on Playstation), long before the software rose from its ashes in 2013 on 3DS. From his full name Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner – Soul Hackers, this J-RPG steeped in the mythology and bestiary of the MegaTen will have the honors of a sequel from August 26 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC.

Soul Hackers 2 is billed as “a supernatural RPG filled with colorful summoners in a dangerous cyberpunk Japan”. The player will be propelled to the side of the agents of Aion responsible for “deciphering fate” in an attempt to save the world from the apocalypse. Because a war is brewing between the Yatagarasu and the Phantom Society, conducive to otherworldly clashes involving demon summoners with supernatural powers.

Leading an existence in humanity’s secret sea of ​​data, a digital entity, Aion, evolved into a sentient. Observing humanity from afar, Aion’s calculations predict an imminent planetary catastrophe and create two agents to counter this end of the world: Ringo and Figue. Together, these two agents of Aion must investigate and prevent the butterfly effect that will lead to the apocalypse. – Soul Hackers 2 Official Site

In the vein of other titles in the MegaTen franchise, Soul Hackers 2 will give us the opportunity to collect demons to merge them with each other to expand our range of skills and defeat our opponents more easily. The links between the characters can be strengthened by exploring their respective pasts, which promises a rich narrative worthy of other Atlus productions. By hacking the souls of the deceased, Ringo (a digital sensory being from the future) can infiltrate their memory at the precise moment of their death and bring them back to life.
