For those of you currently grinding it out in Shin Megami Tensei spin-off Soul Hackers 2, Atlus is currently preparing a new update that hopes to make your hour-chomping journey through the demon-filled dungeons a more streamlined and faster-paced experience.

The new update, which will drop on all platforms in November, will feature a variety of gameplay and U.I. tweaks, all seemingly designed to remove the hurdles between you, the monsters, and endless nights of level-grinding action. The November update will add a “Dash” function to our dungeon-running heroes, and will also offer a “high-speed” option to the game’s many, many, many demonic encounters.

In regards to Soul Hackers 2‘s U.I. and menu system, several small tweaks have been made to expedite the process and get you back to soul ‘ackin in double quick time. Players will now teleport to the shop interior when selecting the shop from the in-game map, while the tip transitions on loading screens have been stripped down to increase load times. Some menu elements will also be rearranged to prevent you over-eager button mashers from accidentally clicking the wrong option.

In addition to the above changes, four more demons will be added to the big book of baddies. These are the fiery Aitvaras, the priestess Isis, comical warrior Neko Shotgun, and finally, the iconic cutie-pie, Pixie (Devil Summoner variant). While a specific launch date is yet to be announced, fans can expect this update to hit next month.

Soul Hackers 2 is available now on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
