Ringo Presents Soul Hackers 2 August 14th Daily Demon; Mushroom Pizza is Underrated

Atlus Japan has begun a new series on its Youtube channel where the protagonist of the upcoming Soul Hackers 2, Ringo, introduces demons that will appear in the title. These are essentially akin to the Daily Demon videos Shin Megami Tensei V received, except more spoof-like due to Ringo’s commentary. She also briefly mentions the day-relevant constellation.

This one-hundredth-and-fifty-seventh video’s contents have been translated by our team’s Ryuji, viewable below:

Today’s Demon of the Day is… oh? This isn’t a demon…ah, it’s Heidrun’s…Sincerity Mushroom Zōsui!

Today’s luckiest constellation is Taurus. Edible mushrooms…? I suppose that’s a sign that you must muster all of your courage today! Even if it is just a tiny step, that petite bit of courage will come in handy today.

Oh yeah, Arrow’s a fan of this stuff! “Even if it’s just a tiny step”, huh… Welp, the one who decides that is you and you only…I’ll be expecting great things from you, Arrow.

Well then, let’s do our best today!

Translator’s Note: Zōsui is a Japanese rice soup akin to a rice-based vegetable soup. It is made from pre-cooked rice and dashi or water, seasoned with either soy sauce or miso and finally cooked with various other ingredients, which in this case, are mushrooms. The kanji for “zosui” can literally mean “miscellaneous things boiled in water”.

For those unaware, Soul Hackers is a Shin Megami Tensei offshoot that last released for the 3DS, under Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers. Initially, Soul Hackers was considered an entry in the Devil Summoner subseries of Shin Megami Tensei games. However, with Soul Hackers 2, it is now its own series while still retaining some ties to the subfranchise.

Atlus West has announced that the game will have the option to choose between English and Japanese audio, with English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish subtitle options also being selectable, providing greater audience accessibility.

Soul Hackers 2 will release on August 26, 2022, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
