A second trailer from the Japanese arm of the developer is the usual daily video, this time revealing Zhen. It’s a demon that debuted in the original Soul Hackers’ predecessor Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner, and it also appeared in the recent Shin Megami Tensei V.
The trailer also includes the usual daily horoscope, and this time Capricorn is at the top of the fortune ranking, while Cancer is at the bottom. Looks like it’s my lucky day.

You can check out the original trailer, plenty of screenshots, a second gallery, more images, even more screenshots, another gallery, a video explaining the gameplay, another, one more, and the latest, on top of tons of gameplay.
