Atlus has released a new trailer for Soul Hackers 2, providing some more background information about one of the main characters, Arrow.
Arrow is an agent of Yatagarasu, a Devil Summoner faction. He is killed early in the game but Aion brings him back to life via her Soul Hacking ability. According to new details on the Soul Hackers 2 Japanese website, Arrow's COMP weapon is an MK90 summoning gun. He also specializes in both ice elemental skills and support skills. Arrow has a high natural endurance stat and learns skills that can protect his allies.
Some other details about Arrow are that he is 179cm tall, was born on February 22, and likes to eat shoyu ramen.
The website also introduces two new characters associated closely with Arrow. Raven is a former agent of Yatagarasu and acts as a mentor. Kaburagi is an agent of the Phantom Society and was the one who killed Arrow in the first place. The trailer suggests that they both knew each other when they were children. While getting rid of Arrow was part of his mission, Kaburagi's deeper motivations are currently unknown.
Soul Hackers 2 launches on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on August 25 in Japan and August 26 worldwide.
