Atlus will be returning to one of their most iconic roots later this year, as the developer has announced the Soul Hackers 2 release date, set for August 26, with a first announcement trailer! A sequel to the Sega Saturn classic first released in 1997, Soul Hackers 2 will be releasing on both consoles and PC, a marked departure from its predecessors. Check out the trailer below as well as first details on Soul Hackers 2.
Here is the announcement trailer for Soul Hackers 2:
In a war between devil summoners, it’s up to Ringo and her team to decrypt destiny and save the world from apocalypse!
Soul Hackers 2, while bearing the tagline ‘2,’ is actually the third in the series. The first was Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner, followed by Devil Summoner 2: Soul Hackers. Both are spinoffs of the Shin Megami Tensei series, which include the highly popular Persona subseries.
Based on the trailer, it would seem that Soul Hackers 2 will follow the game design and overall style popularized by Persona 5. The first Soul Hackers is a dungeon-crawling RPG, with Demons that can be summoned, all those native within the Shin Megami Tensei series.
Soul Hackers 2 release date is set for August 26 for next-gen platforms PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S as well as PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
