Atlus provided new details and media for Soul Hackers 2 focusing on the party member Saizo. Saizo is a Devil Summoner not belonging to a faction and one of the characters marked as a “protection target” for main protagonist Ringo. He is killed by a member of the antagonistic Phantom Society, but Ringo’s soul hacking powers resurrect him, after which he decides to join her.
Saizo is a cool romantic and often acts as peacemaker between other party members Arrow and Milady. He uses a gun-style COMP and is good with Gun and Force skills with high agility and a specialisation in support actions. Another character associated with Saizo is Ash. She is an agent with the Phantom Society who once dated Saizo and is involved in his murder but seemingly not intentionally.
Soul Hackers 2 is a new title in Shin Megami Tensei’s Devil Summoner spin-off series. The game is being developed for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S and is planned to release in Japan on August 25, 2022, and in North America and Europe on August 26, 2022. Soul Hackers 2 follows Ringo, a Devil Summoner — someone able to command demons to fight using customisable devices called COMPs — aiming to prevent the apocalypse as a war breaks out between factions.
