Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is a sequel to the original Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner, and is part of Atlus's larger Megami Tensei franchise. Originally released on the Sega Saturn and later for the Sony PlayStation in Japan, it was remade on the 3DS in 2012.
The setting was unique for its time, anticipating a future dominated by the internet and featuring a fictional virtual-reality cyberspace city called Paradigm X, years before The Matrix franchise of movies and games.
Soul Hackers' compendium consists of different classes that are further divided into the traditional Shin Megami Tensei demon races. Demons are ordered from highest level to lowest.
