The conflict between the Yatagarasu and the Phantom Society, two rival Devil Summoner factions, is depicted in Soul Hackers 2 as occurring in the twenty-first century. The main characters of the story are Ringo and Figue, two "Aion" creatures that journey into the world of humans from where they were born in the data stream in an effort to avert a catastrophe that they predict will put an end to humanity.
The Press Turn method used in the core Shin Megami Tensei games serves as the foundation for Soul Hackers 2's battle system. In other Megami Tensei games, a party of four characters and their elemental affinities participate in fights. Characters alternate turns using a mix of physical strikes and magic abilities that summon demons to perform elemental attacks. The skill "Sabbath," which targets all weak foes in battle and causes tremendous damage to all of the active party members, may only be used if the player is successful in exploiting an enemy or enemy group's susceptibility to a certain Skill.
