15 years later, Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is finally coming to the states
Wow, that music! I totally missed this song from Atlus’ trailers for the Japanese version. I considered just posting the initial English screens and linking out the trailer, but that track is too good. The video doesn’t delve into the story, though, so here’s a summary:
“Soul Hackers tells of a city held up as a beacon of humanity’s triumph of technology, but with an infernal secret. In this would-be utopia, a group of hackers takes on a centuries-old mystic society, and a battle for control over humanity’s fate is about to begin.”
Shin Megami Tensei fans have waited for this one to make it here since 1997, when it released in Japan for Sega Saturn. Atlus sought to localize a PlayStation edition of Soul Hackers back in the day, but Sony shot down that idea. This 3DS enhanced port of the first-person cyberpunk/occult RPG will release in the U.S. next spring.
