Atlus released the second full trailer for Soul Hackers 2, this time introducing members of the different devil summoner factions throughout the game. This one focuses on the Phantom Society, an antagonistic group of devil summoners that comes into conflict with Aion, the sentient data collective that spawns protagonists Ringo and Figue.
Check out the second Soul Hackers 2 trailer below. English subtitles are available in the closed captions. Note that the trailer exposes some story cutscenes. Players that want to avoid any possible spoilers may wish to refrain from watching.
The Soul Hackers 2 trailer shows a violent interaction between Iron Mask and Zenon, two members of the Phantom Society, and Ichiro Onda, a member of New Ward 24 Telecoms Research and Development Center. The Phantom Society seeks out a “Covenant” in Onda’s possession. Those who possess enough Covenants will be able to bring about the end of the world, a phenomenon Ringo and Figue intend to stop. Other previously revealed characters like Arrow, Milady, and Saizo get some exposure in the new trailer as well.
