Atlus has released a new update for its Shin Megami Tensei spin-off, Soul Hackers 2. The new patch adds four new demons to the mix and includes several new abilities to help slim down that all-consuming time-grind.
The new “Dash” toggle will allow players to control Ringo at a much-accelerated rate, helping her to negotiate the monster-infested labyrinths with speed and even performing her standard “slash” in double-quick time. This new speed increase can also be applied to battles themselves, with a “Speed Up” toggle allowing for quick and easy carvings in face-to-face encounters. Hopefully, these two new additions will make grinding for XP less of a chore.
Four new demons have been added to the Soul Hackers 2 roster: the fiery Aitvaras, the stoic priestess Isis, Neko Shotgun, and iconic Pixie. Acquiring these new demons does not count toward the in-game Registration Percentage of the Demon Compendium, nor its associated achievements or trophies.
Small tweaks and bug fixes should improve loading times across the board, while other changes streamline the shop experience and include new preventative measures to stop button mashers from accidentally selecting the wrong options while plowing through the game’s many menu screens.
Soul Hackers 2 is available now on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
