Atlus just launched a new teaser website for Soul Hackers counting down to February 21 at 8 PM JST. Alongside this website launch, all the global social media channels for Atlus have shared the news basically confirming the announcement will be global. The website also has a specific time mentioned of 8 PM JST today which implies some sort of reveal happening later today. Soul Hackers was listed separately by Sega Sammy last May in the financial report as a past IP/brand being considered for a new release of some form.
Soul Hackers is one of the most interesting Atlus releases on 3DS for its vibe, music, and gameplay. It took me a little bit to get into the gameplay structure, but it is definitely a hidden gem on the 3DS and one of Atlus’ best non Etrian Odyssey releases on the platform.
Check out the official Twitter account for this new project here.
As of now, you can grab Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner Soul Hackers on Nintendo 3DS worldwide if you’d like to sample Soul Hackers before we get a reveal of this new project from Atlus.
