Today Atlus hosted a livestream bound to the mysterious “Soul Hackers” teaser revealed a few days ago.
While the livestream was very cryptic, asking rather ominous questions to the audience, a few images were very briefly showcased.
Along these, we can see a character, the city of Tokyo, and even a “R1” button that appears to indicate that the game may be at least for PlayStation platforms.
The word “Aion” is also recurrent, and it appears that it may be a group or faction.
You can see them all in the gallery below,
Apologies for the temporary use of imgur galleries. Our gallery feature is temporarily broken due to a software transition and we’ll revert to that as soon as possible.
It’s worth mentioning that the appearance of the R1 button doesn’t mean that the game will be a PlayStation exclusive. It may very well be multiplatform.
We’ll have to wait and see for the official announcement which will happen early next week on February 21 at 8:00 pm Japan Time, 11:00 am GMT, noon CET, 6 am EST, and 3 am PST, depending on where you live.
If the name “Soul Hackers” rings a bell, Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, is a JRPG released by Atlus in 1997 for Sega Saturn as a spin-off of the popular Megami Tensei series.
It was then ported to PlayStation in 1999 and 3DS in 2012 when it finally was localized for the west.
