System: Dungeon Search
Enemy Symbols and Slashing
Inside dungeons, enemies will appears as red symbols. If they notice you, they will attack and if they touch you you may enter battle in a disadvantageous state, such as the enemy getting the first attack. By slashing the enemy with Ringo’s sword and initiating a battle, you can start the fight with an advantage. It is also possible to avoid the battle completely by avoiding downed enemy symbols.
When you start a battle with a slashed enemy, there is a chance that a bonus will occur. At the beginning of the battle, allies might attack and start the fight in an advantageous state. There is also a skill to increase the rate of bonus attacks.
When you enter a dungeon, Ringo commands the demons to scatter throughout the dungeon and start searching. You can meet demons who went out to explore the dungeon to find items and recover strength.
Negotiation and Demon Contracts
Searching demon allies may introduce you to an enemy demon in a dungeon. By negotiating with the enemy demon, you can form a contract and make them your demon. The demon’s skills can be used by equipping it to a COMP. This will also change stats, so you can switch them out depending on the situation.
Soul Hackers 2 will be released for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC in Japan on August 25th, and the West on August 26th, 2022.
