At the surprise (and for the greatest pleasure) of the fans, there was an ad concerning the Shin Megami Tensei series. It turns out that a spin-off of the series will come out this year.
Soul Hackers 2 should go out on August 20, 2022. The original series entitled Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, was originally published in 1997 on Sega Saturn, then reissued later on Nintendo 3DS in 2013.
As for the current game that will be released in the summer of 2022, we still know little about the game itself, except what was seen in the trailer. It seems, in terms of combat, that it will be similar to the Persona series and the other Shin Megami Tensei series – that is to say that there is the element of invocation – for Soulmoner Soul, the demons Until now – as part of the fight, with the possibility of combining devils to create new invocations, as seen in previous games. That there is an element of meeting or the exploration of the stories of other characters remains to be seen.
However, there seems to be at least a part of the story, part of the history that is known. According to the trailer (which is limited by age on YouTube, because the game has been classified mature for violence, coarse language, partial nudity, blood and gore), history is articulated around Two spheres.
One is a war between two Devil Summoner factions, the Yagarats and Phantom Society. The other, Ringo and fig, are two beings born from a realm of information continuously. They seem to be super-intelligent beings called “aions” and come in the world of moisture to stop the end of the world.
It seems that players will control Ringo, at least for the most part, and can move around the city, buy items, visit monuments and visit other characters.
