A new trailer for Soul Hackers 2 has revealed that the DLC for the game will feature songs from Persona 4 and Persona 5, both of which are tied to costumes that the party members can wear. Soul Hackers 2 is an upcoming JRPG for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, where the worlds of science fiction and the supernatural merge into one, as devil summoners face each other in a futuristic world.
Atlus loves mixing elements of the Persona and Shin Megami Tensei series together in DLC, including elements from their own individual series. Persona 5 Royal included battles against the protagonists of Persona 3 and Persona 4 in DLC boss fights, while Shin Megami Tensei IV unleashed the Fiends from Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne as DLC bosses that were spread around the world. The DLC for these series often includes music and costumes, allowing players to bring familiar battle BGMs into the new titles.
A new trailer for Soul Hackers 2 on the official Atlus West YouTube channel has revealed the DLC content for the game, not counting the Persona 5 Phantom Thieves Outfits DLC, which is a pre-order exclusive for all versions of the game. The DLC includes six Costume & BGM Packs, which add outfits and songs from the original Soul Hackers, Devil Summoner, Persona 4, Persona 5, and Shin Megami Tensei IV. There is also a swimsuit outfit pack that doesn’t have a BGM.
The DLC for Soul Hackers 2 also includes the new “Lost Numbers” DLC storyline, as well as Booster Items that will make the game easier. There will also be 8 exclusive demon bosses, including Mara, the most popular Shin Megami Tensei demon as voted for by fans in Japan, as well as Satan, Masakado, Nemissa from Soul Hackers, Zaou-Gongen, Armaiti, Anahita, and Tzitzimitl. The “Lost Numbers” and Booster Items will be available in the Digital Deluxe version of Soul Hackers 2, while the Bonus Demons and Costume & BGM Packs will be available in the Digital Premium edition, though all of it can be purchased as separate DLC.
It’s not surprising to hear songs like “Reach Out To The Truth” from Persona 4 and “Last Surprise” from Persona 5, as they’re among the best battle themes in video game history. Hopefully, Soul Hackers 2 will avoid an issue that Persona 5 Royal had and will let the player create a tracklist for their DLC themes, in order to mix things up. This means they can still enjoy the new tracks in Soul Hackers 2 alongside the classic songs.
