Unsure what each version includes? Look no further!
It isn’t long until Soul Hackers 2 is released and it got me thinking: which edition should I pre-purchase? I decided to do a little digging and found some information regarding what you get in each version. So, here is a breakdown for each of the three available editions of the game.
Soul Hackers 2 - Standard Edition
This one is rather self-explanatory. It’s the Standard Edition, therefore there aren't really any extra goodies for players. However, aside from the full game (obviously), you do get a pre-order bonus of the exclusive Persona 5 Phantom Thieves Outfits Pack. Not too shabby for those ATLUS fans amongst you!
Soul Hackers 2 - Deluxe Edition
Okay, now onto something a little more substantial. With the Deluxe Edition you’re getting the full game (again, it seems redundant to say this, but you never know!), the pre-order bonus, a Booster Item Pack, and an additional bonus story arc: The Lost Numbers.
But what are these add-ons exactly? Well the Booster Item Pack grants you in-game consumables that will help you earn more money, boost your stats, and grant additional experience points. It’s unknown if these are just one-off, temporary buffs, or if they’ll last the whole game, but they’ll certainly be useful for those that grow tired of grinding levels!
The Lost Numbers was something I struggled to find more information about. I do know that this extra story content adds a bonus dungeon, but beyond that, your guess is as good as mine.
Soul Hackers 2 - Premium Edition
Last but not least we have the Premium Edition. Aside from everything already mentioned in the previous two editions being included, this version also gives us the following:
- Bonus Demon Pack
- Costume & BGM Pack
- Mary's Maid Frock Outfit
- Ai-Ho Demon
The Bonus Demon Pack grants the player eight powerful bonus demons, including a popular demon from the original Soul Hackers games. Which demon could it be I wonder?
Costume & BGM Pack is fairly obvious, it’ll feature bonus music tracks and extra costumes for each character.
Mary’s Maid Frock Outfit is, unsurprisingly, a maids outfit for main character Ringo, based on the first game’s robot assistant, Mary.
Finally we come to the Ai-Ho Demon, an adorable creature who looks like franchise regular demon Jack Frost cosplaying as Ringo. It’s a unique spin on a beloved series demon, I wonder what tricks are up its sleeves?
There you have it, a breakdown of what's included in each of the three editions of Soul Hackers 2, which releases on 26th of August, 2022.
