    Story

    The story takes place in the middle of the 21st century, a little further in the future than the present, with Devil Summoners: people who summon demons to help others. There are two opposing Devil Summoner factions: Yatagarasu, and the Phantom Society.

    One day, Aion, a supernatural being that watches over the world, detects its end.

    Aion beings Ringo and Figue descend into the human world to avoid the cataclysm, but the targets they need to protect have already been killed. Ringo executes the Aion’s special “Soul Hack” ability, reviving the targets.

    Given a “second chance,” Ringo and Figue join forces with the Devil Summoners, who have been resurrected from the brink of death, to pursue a mystery with the future of the world at stake.

    Will they be able to avert ruin?

    Characters

    Ringo (Voice: Tomoyo Kurosawa)

    An Aion agent. A newborn being with a strong curiosity about society, culture, and human emotions. She stands in the front line with Arrow and other Devil Summoners, working hard to avert the end of the world.

    Figue (Voice: Nanako Mori)

    An Aion agent, born at the same time as Ringo. She is cool and thoughtful, and sometimes guides Ringo at her own pace. She does not participate in combat directly, but is responsible for analyzing information and providing logistical support.

    Arrow (Voice: Kaito Ishikawa)

    A Devil Summoner belonging to Yatagarasu. He is one of the targets detected to be protected by Aion. He is usually a quiet, honest, and gentle young man. However, he is very passionate.

    Milady (Voice: Ami Koshimizu)

    A Devil Summoner and member of the Phantom Society, she accompanies Ringo for some reason. She is a rational and reasonable person who sometimes makes ruthless decisions. It seems that her past experiences have something to do with it.

    Cyzo (Voice: Masaya Matsukaze)

    A freelance Devil Summoner. He’s a romantic and charming man with a good sense of humor. He’s good at reading the atmosphere and acting accordingly. He often intervenes between Arrow and Milady, who are often at odds with each other.

    Gameplay

    A turn-based RPG, Soul Hackers 2 features a battle system called “Sabbath,” based on the “Press Turn” system familiar to the Shin Megami Tensei series. By targeting an enemy’s weaknesses one after another, players can perform an All-Out Attack.
