Saizo is one of the characters in Soul Hackers 2 that is playable and unexpectedly may look easy going but he becomes serious and hardworking in solving unknown mysteries around Japan. In this guide, we, of Sirus Gaming, will give players a chance to know more about Arrow’s unlockable skills and the challenges they will face in Soul Hackers 2.
What is a Soul Matrix?
Like Persona 5’s Mementos and Shin Megami Tensei’s Labyrinth of Amala, Soul Matrix is a dungeon that is free to explore for players to increase their stats, gain new demons, and an area where requests can happen. There are three Soul Matrix areas, one for each party member excluding Ringo, and each floor will be unlocked depending on their Soul Level. Each floor unlocked has new abilities, new special demon fusion, and new items to uncover. Not only that, there will be new flashbacks and character stories up to the end of the floor so it’s best to have their soul levels at least 100 to unlock everything.
