On February 21, Soul Hackers 2 was announced with a trailer, which surprised many players who weren't expecting it. The trailer demonstrates how extensively the game uses its luminous design, which sets it apart from other Megami Tensei titles.
Parts of the gameplay and many of the characters, including the laser gun-wielding Ringo, are shown in the trailer. The gameplay incorporates the turn-based combat system, which mixes aspects from previous Persona games with the main series' Press Turn System. Outside the battle, the characters are seen exploring places.
The storyline is set in modern-day and revolves around a rivalry between the Phantom Society and Yagatarasu, two devil summoning clans. Ringo and Figue, two entities born off the information highway, are assisting the Devil Summoners.
Tragically for them, most of the people they were supposed to guard have already passed away. This is a concern because their lives were crucial in preventing a horrific occurrence. Ringo, the series' only female heroine, can resurrect others. Therefore, her efforts may be the only way to avoid the apocalypse.
