SOUL Hackers 2 is the latest game in the Shin Megami Tensei series that spawned the Persona games, and a new patch will bring big improvements to the gameplay.
Like many games in the franchise, you form bonds with your teammates, upgrade your equipment, and crawl through dungeons looking for demons to befriend.
Soul Hackers 2 also includes the fusing demons mechanic, a touching story, and a no-die mode which made the latest Persona games a big hit with fans.
However, while the Persona series is as popular as ever, Soul Hackers 2 failed to become a hit with fans.
All the important pieces were there but the game suffered from one major issue; the pacing.
Dungeons are large and sprawling, and you often have to backtrack through them to pick up all the items.
However, the protagonist Ringo only learnt how to run about a third of the way into the game.
By strengthening your bond with another character Milady, you could unlock the power ‘Assassin’s Steps’.
This allowed Ringo to run at double speed, but it costs some MP to use, and ran out rather quickly, needing to be reapplied.
The Assassin’s Steps upgrade was also somewhat hidden and could be easy to miss by players.
You will encounter a lot of enemies as you wander through the dungeons, some of which are much lower than your level.
There is an auto-battle mechanic for this where each party member goes in with their basic attacks.
However, some enemies resist these attacks, and some even are immune to it or reflect the damage back at the player.
This means that you will need to use the slower regular mode of battling, even if the enemies are way below your level.
In the upcoming update, you will be able to select other attacks while keeping the higher battling speed.
It seems developer Atlus really listened to fans on exactly what they wanted to improve the game’s experience.
Other small changes have been implemented, decreasing load times, and adding in new demons.
The patch will be introduced in a few weeks, and full patch notes can be found on the official website.
