Atlus is on the warpath, bringing the Soul Hackers sequel to Japan on August 25th and everywhere else the following day.
Twisted Fates is a minute-long assault on the senses that doesn’t deliver any new gameplay, mechanics or story but expertly shows off a new chapter in the connected worlds of the Shin Megami Tensei “Personaverse” that gamers around the world have become accustomed to.
It’s somewhat of a seemingly less violent form of marketing for a company known for dropping long-form “let’s play” videos and even entire animes in order to advertise games. But through the minute, we see “Data Agents” Ringo and Figue ironically humanized during their special mission to hunt “Persons of Interest” in the coming of the apocalypse.
I’m personally very confused with how little advertising and content I’ve seen from this game, but if “Twisted Fates” does anything for me — which it really does– it’s assuring me that there’s a slice-of-life and safe stylings to Soul Hackers 2I’ve come to expect from Atlus.
