Get thee behind me
We’re just a fortnight out from the launch of the super stylish-looking Shin Megami Tensei title Soul Hackers 2, which will launch on PC and console platforms come August 25 — and while the demon-hunting adventure hasn’t hit the streets yet, Atlus is already getting its DLC machine in gear.
On launch day, multiple paid DLC packs will be made available for Soul Hackers 2, comprised of additional music tracks, in-game costumes, extra in-game currency/items, and — perhaps a little more egregiously — a full alternate story chapter featuring a super-cool new devil summoner, Nana. Here’s a shocker: She has a sort of “gothy/punky” aesthetic, as do day one DLC characters for all video games in existence.
You can check out a Japanese trailer spotlighting all of the DLC below. More images are available over on the official Atlus Japan website.
There are four paid DLC packs in total. One featuring the extra character/scenario, one featuring a roster of additional demons, and one featuring a variety of character skins — including gear representing previous titles such as Persona 5, Shin Megami Tensei IV, and the original Soul Hackers, as well as the obligatory “swimsuit” wardrobe. Each pack can be purchased separately or in an “All-in-One” bundle for a discounted price of ¥4,840, or roughly $35 USD. Don’t shoot the messenger.
Soul Hackers 2 launches August 25 on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
