Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers takes place in a virtual reality world called Paradigm X. The hero hacks into the world and installs a devil summoning program, which gives him access to a "gun computer" called a GUMP. Demons begin appearing in the real world and now you have to solve what’s really going on in Paradigm X.
The hero and a member of the hacker group called Spookies.
Hitomi is the hero’s childhood friend and apartment roommate. At a young age, Hitomi lost her mother. Her father, an archeologist, was often away so her grandmother raised her. Hitomi gets caught up in events with the hero and is possessed by…
… Nemissa. Nemissa takes over the Hitomi’s body with a loud and uninhibited personality. From time to time, Hitomi’s meek personality surfaces and the two consciousnesses battle for the same body.
Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is a port of a Sega Saturn game, but Atlus is polishing it by shortening the loading times and adding a new intro move from Satelight. Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers comes out for Nintendo 3DS on August 30.
