Seeing the names ATLUS and SEGA continue to spawn JRPG games on the market, especially with multiplatform releases, is certainly happy. Apart from Persona who seems to be the champion, they are also exploring a new series from an old name that was abandoned – Soul Hackers 2. Through the latest series which was also released from day one on all existing platforms, unfortunately it provoked more criticism. Obviously it was built on a lower budget which then had an impact on design issues, both in terms of aesthetics and gameplay. The bad news? He is also weak in terms of sales.
In the financial report released by SEGA, in the question and answer session with investors, SEGA acknowledged the weakness of the sales figures for Soul Hackers 2 that they had relied on. No exact figures were given indeed, but they admitted that at this time, sales were below their expectations. However, SEGA still believes that it can sell this game in the long term, and as such, will continue to improve it with various updates in the name of making it more attractive to a wider market.
SEGA admits that sales of Soul Hackers 2 failed to live up to their expectations.
Sales of ATLUS’ own games rarely end up disappointing SEGA, outside of games like Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE which unfortunately were born from the same team that worked on Soul Hackers 2. How about you? Did you enjoy this series?
