Since one Soul Hackers 2 trailer a day appears not to be enough, Atlus has doubled down with a second video today, and it’s a meaty one.
The video, which actually has English subtitles despite coming from the Japanese arm of the company, starts with an introduction by Ringo, continues with an explanation of the game mechanic, and then ends by talking about Arrow, one of the game’s heroes.
You can check it out below. Do remember to press the “cc” button to activate subtitles.
Soul Hackers 2 releases for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (Steam and Windows Store) on August 26, just one day after the Japanese launch on August 25.
You can check out the original trailer, plenty of screenshots, a second gallery, another trailer about Jack Frost, one about pizza, one focusing on Dormarth, one on Bugbear, one on Hare of Inaba, and one on Tsuchigumo, one on the convenience store Breaking Mart, one on the entrance of Karakucho, one showing Vritra and more, one focusing on Kinmamon, one on Inugami, one on Mad Gasser, one starring Mermaid, another focusing on vending machines, one focusing on Delamancha, another couple on Arrow and B.

Here’s how Atlus officially describes the game:
“Soul Hackers 2 inherits the essence of Devil Summoner: Soul Hacker, while evolving the game concept with a more defined art style, addictive RPG gameplay and ATLUS’s next-level storytelling. Set in the Shin Megami Tensei universe, Soul Hackers 2 follows a brand new story about two Agents of Aion, Ringo and Figure, and their fight to stop the destruction of the world.
