Soul Hackers 2 (ソウルハッカーズ2, Souru Hakkaazu 2), is a single-player, turn-based role-playing game developed by Atlus. The game is published by Atlus and Sega for the Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Microsoft Windows, and Steam. It is the fifth main entry of the Devil Summoner series and a sequel of Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, the previous entry that launched last April 16, 2013, for the Nintendo 3DS worldwide.
Soul Hackers 2 was announced last February 2022. The development was composed of veteran staff members from other Atlus and Megami Tensei titles and is led by a duo of directors/producers, Mitsuru Hirata and Eiji Ishida. Their latest work includes Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE. The “Devil Summoner” title was omitted in order to make the “Soul Hackers” term in the forefront.
Soul Hackers 2 (SH 2) aims to replicate the same feelings of the first game where technology, people, and occult elements interact. This time with a modernized take on the theme. SH 2’s theme will focus on how technology views people which was the opposite theme of the original Soul Hackers game. The game derives elements from new and re-released Atlus games such as Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE, Persona 5 Royal, and Shin Megami Tensei V in terms of the battle system, social simulation elements, and more.
Soul Hackers 2 is set in the mid-21st century in the neon lights of cyberpunk Japan. Aion, a sentient artificial intelligence, predicts the end of the world and creates two sentient agents name Ringo and Figue to prevent it from happening. Among their initial tasks is to rescue and protect two Devil Summoners from different factions since their deaths will cause the end of the world. From that point, they will join forces with more Devil Summoners to uncover the truth behind the world’s end.
Soul Hackers 2 shares similar elements from previous Shin Megami Tensei and Persona titles/spin-offs while having its own new and unique gameplay systems as well. Here is a quick summary of SH 2’s unique gameplay:
Realms are the cities that only Devil Summoners can enter and explore. Within these realms are facilities that allow demon fusions, COMP enhancements, and information gathering. In addition, demons can be seen roaming around and they vary per realm.
As for city exploration, it features a birds-eye view feature similar to Persona titles and Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE. Select a location and you will be transferred to that place.
A COMP is a device that enables summoning demons. In addition, this device grants its user access to demon skills without the need for demon summoning. This feature is similar to Demi-fiend of SMT III and Nahobino of SMT V where you can customize your own usable skills possibly through a Magatama-like or Essence-like mechanic. This time, all your party members have access to this feature through their own COMP devices.
Ringo’s COMP, however, has unique properties such as using Commander Skills (somewhat similar to Magatsuhi Skills) and Sabbath attacks (similar to All-Out Attacks) which can be augmented by Tandem Skills.
Mixed and Improved Battle System
Soul Hackers 2 combat system is a mixed influence of recent Shin Megami Tensei games and Persona games. There is no Press Turn System but there is a counter when you exploit the weakness of your enemies. The affinity chart is somewhat similar to SMT games and less compared to Persona games. They include Physical, Gunfire, Fire, Ice, Electric, Force, Ruin (Dark/Ailment), and Almighty.
Stacking weaknesses is essential since it will unlock a unity attack called a “Sabbath”. This is similar to Persona’s “All-Out Attack” mechanic. This allows Ringo’s demons to hurt enemies and the number of demons participating will vary based on the stacks accumulated.
You have devil summoners as party members and you have demons as summons. You can have a stock of 16 demons and one demon can be assigned to a party member at a time. You carry over their stats and their affinity strengths and weaknesses to the wielder.
Each party member has a COMP device that can be modified and upgraded to wield additional skills such as Exploration, Recovery, and Support skills.
Returning and New Skill Systems
Soul Hackers 2 features returning and new skill systems in the game. One of which is Sabbath Attacks which are similar to All-Out Attacks. Instead of your party, your demons are the ones who will execute a united attack against enemies. The number of demons who will participate depends on the weakness exploit stacks you’ve acquired during a battle. You can unleash up to 16 demons for a Sabbath Attack.
Tandem Skills is a new skill type that adds an effect to your Sabbath Attacks. You can choose one Tandem Skill to add a secondary layer to your Sabbath Attack. Options include HP recovery for your party or inflicting ailments to enemies after receiving damage.
Another skill system is Commander Skills which is exclusive to Ringo. These skills are unique but somewhat identical to Magatsuhi Skills of SMT V. These skills do not consume SP and you will have more skill options when you’ve upgraded her COMP weapon.
New and Returning Demons
Staple and signature demons from previous SMT and Persona titles will appear both as ally summons and foes. Most demon returnees come from Persona 5 and Shin Megami Tensei V.
There are demons that will debut in their newest Unreal Engine forms such as Dormarth and Vritra. While other demons that appeared as 3D models from the SMT Dx2 Liberation mobile game like Hare of Inaba, Kinmamon, and Zhu Tun She will also appear. Furthermore, some demons will revert back to their Devil Summoner form or color scheme such as Angel, Jack Frost, and Scathach.
Also, returning to this game are demon variants. Jack Frost has multiple variants in this game apart from Black Frost. They are Ai-Ho kun, Blue Hawaii Frost, Strawberry Frost, Melon Frost, Lemon Frost, and Milky Frost.
