Soul Hackers 2 Mature Content Detailed Including Violence and Nudity

Soul Hackers 2 is an upcoming JRPG from the Shin Megami Tensei series. It will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC this August.

Atlus is developing the game which will be published by Sega and launch on August 25, 2022. Fans of the Shin Megami Tensei series might remember that it has quite a few odd demons, including some resembling a phallic object or offering nudity.

Soul Hackers 2 appears to have kept these demons in the game based on the recent rating of the game published by IMDA Singapore.

Set in 21st century Japan, “Soul Hackers 2” is a turn-based role-playing game which revolves around Ringo and Figue, two human-like, futuristic digital agents created by a sentient entity named Aion. In the midst of a developing war between two different groups of Devil Summoners, the Yatagarasu and the Phantom Society, the pair of agents attempt to intervene to prevent the end of the world from occuring.

The game is rated Advisory 16 (Suitable for 16 & Above).

During gameplay, the player will explore different locations and control teams of characters, which employ a mix of physical attacks and magic skills to engage enemies in battle. The player can use an ability called “Soul Hack”, which revives a human’s soul after death and taps into his memories and make dialogue choices when interacting with other characters.

The game contains some scenes of violence and gore without explicit details portrayed. Some of the stronger violence includes a scene where a character is implied to be impaled by a long weapon through the chest with some bloodletting depicted, and a scene where a character is implied to cut off his arm, with the dismembered limb shown. These are contained under the ADV16 rating, where the Classification Guidelines permit “a moderate level of violence” and “realistic but not excessively graphic violence with depiction of blood”.

The game also contains a scene where a woman is implied to be nude while lying in bed, with her nudity obscured by her body positioning and stylistic pixelated effects. There are also a few characters who are nude or have phallic forms but without explicit details of genitalia depicted. The ADV16 guidelines allow “nudity without details, e.g. no nipples, genitalia or pubic region (includes hair)” and “still or moving images which may be mildly suggestive e.g. scantily-clad women in bikinis or lingerie”.

Coarse language is uttered by characters and seen in the English subtitles, such as the use of the expletive “f**k”. There is also the use of crude language such as “hell”, “damn” and shit”, as well as some drug references in the dialogue. Under the ADV16 rating, the Classification Guidelines permit “coarse language such as the use of the expletive “f**k”.
