That said, there are some stipulations to upgrading the PS4 version of Soul Hackers 2 to the PS5 version. If consumers have purchased the PlayStation 4 physical edition of Soul Hackers 2, they will need to insert their disc into the PlayStation 5 to boot up the game. However, the PlayStation 5 version of the game can then be downloaded for no additional charge.

Atlus also stated that the Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions of Soul Hackers 2 will be strictly download-only in Japan. This means the title will not receive a physical release within that region.

Additionally, pre-order bonuses will apply to both the physical and digital versions of Soul Hackers 2. The pre-order bonuses include Persona 5 skins and access to music from the game. Atlus does clarify, however, that pre-order bonuses for the physical edition are limited. That is not the case for digital versions of the game. So long as consumers pre-order the digital version of the game before its official release, they will be eligible to receive the content.

Soul Hackers 2 will release on August 25, 2022 in Japan and August 26, 2022 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
