"Soul Hackers" Screens Highlight RPG's Supporting Cast

Atlus gets ready to hack away on Nintendo 3DS next week

It's almost time for the North American release of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, and Atlus is counting down the last few days with a fresh batch of screens. These shots serve to highlight some of the supporting cast, including Spooky, Lunch, Six, and Yu-ichi. 


Check 'em out below along with Atlus' character descriptions:



  • Spooky - Should come as no surprise that a character named Spooky founded the hacker group Spookies. You don't get to be boss of a hacker group without being good at hacking. Spooky is a true leader and will help during times of crisis.
  • Lunch - You can't hack Amami City without a good rig, and Lunch is the best there is at building them. His technical expertise and calm demeanor are matched only by his appetite ... hence the name.
  • Six - Six manages the other kind of hardware a hacker group needs. His nickname comes from the number of shots his favorite weapon holds.
  • Yu-ichi - Every team needs its FNG, and Yu-ichi is as green as they come. But his lack in skill and common sense are made up by his dedication to the group, even if it means bungling things up from time to time.


Soul Hackers arrives on April 16, marking the first time the RPG—originally released on Sega Saturn in 1997—will be available outside of Japan. New features include voice acting, faster battles, difficulty that's adjustable in the middle of a dungeon, an auto-mapping feature on the bottom screen, and more. The first run will come in a limited boxed set with an arranged soundtrack CD.
