Soul Hackers 2 Patch 1.02 Now Live; Dashing, Sped Up Battles, 4 New Demons & More

Atlus has launched patch version 1.02 for their recently released turn-based JRPG, Soul Hackers 2. A list of the myriad of additions and improvements is viewable below:

Dash Function

A “Dash” function has been added to Ringo’s movement.

The user can toggle between “Normal” and “Dash” at will. While in Dash Mode, Ringo’s walking and slashing speeds will increase.

Due to the addition of the dash function, the effect of the Summoner Skill “Assassin’s Steps” has been changed to: “For a given distance, enemies will ignore Ringo.”

Fast Battle Mode

A “Speed Up” mode has been added to battles. Players may freely toggle between normal and high-speed combat.

Adjustments

  • Adjusted how long loading-screen tips are shown.
  • Changed the flow of on-screen prompts during soul level increase to reduce the risk of incorrect input from accidental button presses.
  • Added the ability to teleport directly to shops from the City Map
  • Adjusted enemy spawn rate in dungeons.
  • Adjusted skill inheritance rates during demon fusion.
  • Other minor changes.

Other Changes

Added four new demons: Pixie (Soul Hackers Ver.), Neko Shogun, Aitvaras, and Isis.

Note: The above bonus demons do not count toward the Registration Percentage in the Demon Compendium or the achievement “Compendium Completionist.”

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.

The game has 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 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
