''Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers'' is the second game in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' spinoff series ''Devil Summoner'', taking place after the original ''VideoGame/{{Devil Summoner}}''.



The usual ShinMegamiTensei components are here: demon fusion, elemental weaknesses/strengths, conversing with monsters to convince them to join your cause and an incredibly dark storyline. An important part of Devil Summoner is Loyalty. Demons gain Loyalty if you command them to use moves that their personality type prefers (eg: physical, magic, etc.) and lose Loyalty if you tell them to use a move that they hate. A Demon with high Loyalty is more likely to obey you and even make a DivingSave. A Demon with low Loyalty will routinely ignore your commands and may even leave the party. (Yes, it's as annoying as it sounds.) The only Demon that isn't subject to this is the Zoma (default name Zeed), an artificial demon who will always have complete loyalty to you and grows not by traditional fusion, but by "stealing" the stats and abilities of demons that you sacrifice to it.

Added DiffLines:

* BreatherLevel: The Mall, save for some hard-hitting opponents like Powers and Duergars, is significantly easier than both the Amami Float and the Haunted Mansion, especially since it has no boss at all, compared to the three {{Wolfpack Boss}}es the previous two levels had between them. The Microelectronics Plant immediately after, however, ratchets up the difficulty even further.

* ActingForTwo: Done in the Japanese version. Averted in the English version as Atlus [=USA=] wanted to give players an easier time on [[spoiler:who's speaking as Nemissa and Hitomi after the latter's body is possessed.]]






* NamesTheSame: Masahiro Sakurai (Spooky) shares his name with {{Creator/Masahiro Sakurai}}.



* NoExportForYou: Neither the Playstation or Saturn versions were ever released in the West, although the 3DS remake has received an official localization in North America.
