Here’s a character bio for Saizo, via the game’s official site, as well as another new character Ash:
Hobby: Pure audio

Favorite place: His favorite cigar bar
Favorite thing: Vintage wine
What I laughed at recently: Old manga borrowed from Fig
What he’s interested in: Guaranteeing payment for this mission
Birthday: March 24
Free Devil Summoner. A romantic and charming shop. He is a type of reading and acting in the air, and often goes into arbitration between Arrow and Milady, who tend to be in conflict.
COMP: Tommy Gun
He is good at shooting attribute attacks with gun-shaped COMP. High aptitude for impact skills. Saizo himself is very quick, and he is good at supporting using recovery skills and items, so he can turn around dexterously.
Organization: Phantom Society
Important things: Her pet hamster
Devil Summoner of the Phantom Society. At first glance, it gives the impression of being dry, but in fact, it also has a deep and romantic side. She seems to have had a lover relationship with Saizo, but for some reason she broke up. She helped kill Saizo, but apparently she didn’t mean it …?
Here’s a rundown on the game:
It’s been 25 years since “Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers”, the popular spin-off that mixed the Shin Megami Tensei series with a sci-fi worldview. Soul Hackers 2 will be released on August 25, 2022!
Inheriting the genes of the Devil Summoner series and Soul Hackers, Soul Hackers 2 will tell a new story of people and technology with a concept that has evolved over a quarter of a century.
The PV released today and the official website with information on the first limited edition, a must-see for fans, are also open. Reservations are scheduled to start on February 22. (Pre-order start time may vary depending on the retailer, so please contact the retailer for details.)
The story takes place in the middle of the 21st century, a little further in the future than now. One day, the supernatural being that watches over the world, “Aion”, detects the end of the world. Aion’s Ringo and Fig descend to the human world to avert the end. However, the target they need to protect has already been killed.
Ringo executes Aion’s special “Soul Hack” ability and revives the target. Given a “second chance,” Ringo and Fig join forces with Devil Summoners who have been revived with regret for their deaths, and pursue a mystery with the future of the world at stake.
Will they be able to avert the crisis of destruction?
Soul Hackers 2 will launch on August 25th in Japan and on August 26th in the west across Windows PC (via Steam and Windows 10/11), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
