About the game:
Soul Hackers delivers a first-person, dungeon-crawling RPG experience set in a future where technology and otherworldly forces meet in a macabre fusion of cyberpunk futurism and gothic horror. A first-person sci-fi RPG epic, 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.
Keeping the tradition of Shin Megami Tensei: Players will have the compelling choice throughout their dungeon exploration to fight the enemy demons, or negotiate with them in an attempt to turn them into allies and teammates!
Classic dungeon-crawling strikes back with more: Players who have already played the original will also experience 30 newly added demons, along with a new opening animation movie and theme song. There’s also an extra dungeon, where players will witness the appearance of Raidou Kuzunoha from the previous Devil Summoner games!
Utilize Nintendo 3DS functionality: Players can use the Nintendo 3DS bottom screen as an auto-mapping system; engage a COMP hack to change difficulty levels on the fly and fill out maps without having to traverse the area!
Use StreetPass or Play Coins to improve Nemechi: You can evolve Nemechi by collecting StreetPasses, or by trading Play Coins for D-Souls and spending those on new forms.
