Update [Mon 21st Feb, 2022 12:15 GMT]: Atlus has just revealed Soul Hackers 2 during a livesteam – but it's sadly not coming to Switch.

Here's some PR:

In a war between devil summoners, it is up to Ringo and her team to decrypt destiny and save the world from apocalypse.

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.

Produced and directed by Eiji Ishida and Mitsuru Hirata, other featured staff includes music composed by MONACA, character designs by Shirow Miwa and Production Manager Shinjiro Takata.

The game launches in Japan for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on August 25th. The western launch is a day later.


Original Story [Thu 17th Feb, 2022 05:30 GMT]: Atlus has launched a new countdown website for Soul Hackers - with the big reveal set to take place on February 21st.

There's no information on what exactly to expect, but it's launched a Twitter account alongside it. There's also a mysterious greeting when you open the website (thanks, Gematsu):

Hello HUMAN
We want to collect your information
> Checking device compatibility
> Notice: Please, do NOT take your hands off the device
> Call “Soul Hack”
> Sequence start

If you're at all familiar with Soul Hackers - you might remember Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, an enhanced port of the 1997 Sega Saturn original, released for the 3DS in 2013.
