As in other games in the Shin Megami Tensei series, during battles in Soul Hackers 2 you must exploit enemies’ weak points. Each hit on an opponent’s weakness allows players to summon their demons.

All summoned demons (up to 16) at the end of the turn, on the command of the main character, immediately attack the enemies – this is called a circle. However, some monsters can use special joint moves with different effects.

Also in combat, users have access to devices called COMP (to summon demon abilities) and command commands (increase the power of the circle, change demons without using a move, and so on).

As for the supporting character, we’re talking about Arrow – the first companion to join the player’s roster. Honest and responsible, he uses firearms and ice skills in combat.

According to the plot, Ringo and Fig – agents of the supreme essence of Aion – come to Earth to prevent the end of the world. To this end, the girls team up with demon summoners, including the revived Ringo (Arrow will be among them).

Soul Hackers 2 will be available on August 26th this year for PC (Steam, Microsoft Store), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. The Japanese premiere of the game will take place a day earlier – on August 25th.
