The cyberpunk Japan of Soul Hackers 2 is illuminated by neon in the twenty-first century. The Yatagarasu and the Phantom Society, two rival groups of Devil Summoners, are at war with one another. Ringo and Figure, two magical entities, are closely followed in the narrative. They are computer hive brains known as Lions that have developed into sentient entities. As Ringo, you will be playing this game as you endeavor to prevent the end of the planet by saving humanity.
Similar to earlier Devil Summoner games, prior Devil Summoner experience will aid players in better understanding the background and the game, but it is not a need to fully appreciate Soul Hackers 2.
Soul Hackers 2 Gameplay
The gameplay is similar to that of Soul Hackers and other Shin Megami Tensei games in that it centers around locating and making friends with demons that may aid you in turn-based JRPG fights. These demons can be merged from ally demons in your party or acquired through combat.
As characters level up and demons gain experience in combat, players will be able to unleash the full potential of their devils. Additionally, the game has a social component that enables players to interact with their teammates to develop their friendships and increase their combat effectiveness.
Technological innovation drives people to become absorbed with commercial convenience amidst the flash of neon lights. The War between Yatagarasu and the Phantom Society, who summon “Demons” with supernatural abilities, is raging in the shadows.
A computer hivemind called Aion is present in the unexplored sea of human data and has developed towards sentience. Aion, who is watching humanity from a distance, predicts that a catastrophe that would end the world is about to happen and develops the agents Ringo and Figure to fight it.
These Aion agents must work together to look into and stop a butterfly effect that would bring about the end of the planet. Explore the end of the world as Ringo, an Aion agent entrusted with preventing a catastrophe for mankind.
Aion sends forth beings downscaled to adopt human form after seeing the ruin of the Earth to perform an intervention. Ringo and Figure are these. They are physiologically close to humans and have their own awareness and mental autonomy. They can also use Aion’s abilities, but in more constrained ways.
Play the role of Ringo, an Aion agent dispatched to save mankind from a calamity. She begins to grow distant from her human allies and the problems that burden them, but she finally comes to appreciate the beauty in human diversity.
In a flashy Japanese city, Ringo and her team’s tale comes to life. There are towns called the Realms within this metropolis of commoners, for whom demons are nothing more than legends and tales. There is a claim that a barrier that is invisible to ordinary people separates realms from the outside world. Demons and Devil Summoners coexist together in this metropolis, where summoners have access to facilities for demon fusions, COMP upgrades, and intelligence collection.
They have a long history and have coexisted with regular people, assimilating themselves into the cultures and eras they have lived in. They use their strong talents to resolve paranormal occurrences that are unintelligible to regular humans by forging contracts with demons.
However, there are other summoners who engage in more sinister actions like murder and violence. In the course of trying to stop the end of the world, Ringo gets engaged with two warring demon summoner organizations in particular: the Phantom Society and Yatagarasu.
A unique tool that supports devil summoners’ power to call forth devils. The form of COMPs varies from person to person, and some may decide to utilize and customize them with personal objects and extras. Ringo’s COMP has been modified by Aion’s technology so that demons may be added immediately.
