About soul hackers games.
The first devil summoner soul hackers came out in 1997 and at that time the game received a fair share of praises for its complexity and RPG mechanics that can be easily played even if you’re new to the genre. The spinoff of Shin Megami Tensei rewarded players for defeating tougher bosses, recruiting demons, and an amazing storyline that many grew fond of. After nearly 23 years, the sequel, Soul Hackers 2 surprised everyone as they didn’t believe the game will get a sequel ever. This got many hopefuls about the other series as well, we just have to wait and see in which direction the game will head.
Is Soul Hackers 2 coming to Nintendo Switch?
After looking into the game and investigating it through official channels and the website, we can confirm that Soul Hackers 2 won’t be released on Nintendo Switch, which is a surprise as Shin Megami Tensei and Persona games that are set in the same universe are available on the platform. Fans are also baffled by the approach of Atlus games and why they didn’t port it to Nintendo Switch as these types of games are popular in Japan and are sold astronomically in handheld consoles like Switch. The game is announced for PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, for now. This ultimately suggests that there won’t be a Nintendo Switch port available for this game.
Maybe Atlus is planning on surprising fans with the sudden announcement or maybe the game is timed exclusive and we might get a Nintendo Switch release date a year later, we can never know. Do keep in mind that this is only speculation on our part and shouldn’t be taken seriously. As soon as we get an announcement of the game for Switch, we’ll keep you updated as soon as possible.
