As is customary, Atlus released another teaser for their forthcoming JRPG Soul Hackers 2 yesterday, this time showing the movement of one of the game’s monsters. With Byakko, we’ll be taking a look at one of the long-standing demons from the Shin Megami Tensei series, who appears in the fifth installment of the series.
It’s usual for trailers to include a daily zodiac, which places Libra on top of the luck scale and Aries at the bottom, respectively.
Here’s everything we know about it.
Soul Hackers 2 Release Date
Soul Hackers 2 will be released on August 26 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Desktop (Steam and Windows Store) following the Japanese premiere on August 25. If you’d like, you may check out the original teaser, as well as a secondary collection with even more images, a clip that explains the action, and a few more options.
In the past, there have been videos focusing on Chernobog, Flauros, Genbu, Unicorn, Moh Shuvuu, Setanta, and one promoting Setanta.
Here’s how Atlus formally describes the game:
“Soul Hackers 2 maintains the spirit of Devil Summoner: Soul Hacker, whilst developing the gaming idea with a more distinct graphic aesthetic, addicting RPG action, including ATLUS’s succeeding narrative.”
Two Aion operatives, Ringo and Figure, are at the center of a new storyline in Soul Hackers 2, which takes place in the Shin Megami Tensei world. Aside from Shirow Miwa and Shinjiro Takata, Eiji Ishida and Mitsuru Hirata also serve as writers and designers, respectively, of the game.
Soul Hackers 2 Gameplay
A few additional insights about the title’s gameplay were also revealed by the developer. It seems like you’re using the COMPs to negotiate with monsters in the normal SMT fashion. As is customary in fighting, the focus will be on attacking the vulnerabilities of the opponent.

You may conjure “mobs of demonic pals” for the “Sabbath” assault in this title, which clobbers all adversaries for a lot of bloodsheds if you know how to take advantage of vulnerabilities.
It reminds me a lot of Persona’s All-Out Attacks. Last but not least, there is a slew of new pictures that toy with the Persona 5-inspired look, as well as more information on Soul Hackers 2. Even if the introduction video didn’t convince you to buy the title, the new information you’ve learned recently should.
The game would be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC on August 26, 2022, with English and Japanese voice choices available.
