The action of the game takes place in the near future. A being known as Aion, who protects the world, detects an impending catastrophe and sends his subordinates, cybernetic agents Ringo and Figue, to protect two people who can prevent this disaster. Upon arriving on Earth, however, it turns out that the targets of their protection have already been murdered. Therefore, through the use of Aion's powers, both are resurrected.

Soul Hackers 2 is a quite a classic jRPG. We explore the world, complete quests, develop heroes and fight with enemies using a turn-based battle system, where achieving success requires choosing the type of attacks to specific enemies and targeting their weak points.
The key role in the gameplay plays the system of summoning demons, which we use in fights. Players can make contracts with these creatures, develop their abilities and combine two individuals to create a new, more powerful form.
Regular mortal cities are only explored by humans and Aion's cybernetic agents, but each location also has a hidden metropolis where demons can materialize not only during battles. These locations offer numerous useful facilities for gathering information and developing demons.
