Today, Atlus released its inevitable daily trailer for the upcoming JRPG Soul Hackers 2, showing off another of the items appearing in the game.
This time it’s not against a demon, but against vending machines. Vending machines selling drinks (and sometimes food or more exotic products) are commonplace in Tokyo, where you can find them practically everywhere.
Specifically, the vending machine you can see in the trailer, which Ringo calls “Negociere” appears to be a parody of the “Acure” brand which has become rather popular in Japan, displaying drinks on a touch screen, some models can even “read” your face and suggest the best drink for you based on market research.
We also get the usual daily horoscope, with Aries being marked as the luckiest sign, while Capricorn is at the very bottom of the luck rankings. Looks like I have to be careful today.
You can check out the trailer below.
Soul Hackers 2 will be released for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (Steam and Windows Store) on August 26, just one day after the Japanese launch on August 25.
You can check out the original trailer, lots of screenshots, a second gallery, another Jack Frost trailer, one on pizza, one on Dormarth, one on Bugbear, one on Hare of Inaba and one on Tsuchigumo, one on convenience store Breaking Mart, one on Delamancha, one showing Vritra and more, one focusing on Kinmamon, one on Inugami, one on Mad Gasser, and one featuring Mermaid.
Here’s how Atlus officially describes the game:
“Soul Hackers 2 inherits the essence of Devil Summoner: Soul Hacker, while evolving the concept of the game with a more defined art style, addictive RPG gameplay, and next-level storytelling from ATLUS. Set in the universe Shin Megami Tensei, Soul Hackers 2 follows an all-new story about two Aion agents, Ringo and Figure, and their fight to stop the destruction of the world.
Produced and directed by Eiji Ishida and Mitsuru Hirata, other featured personnel include music composed by MONACA, character designs by Shirow Miwa and production manager Shinjiro Takata.
