Soul Hacker 2 is the latest JRPG released by Atlus Studios (which previously produced the highly acclaimed persona Series). As a continuation of soul hacker, this new sci-fi story puts the player in the role of Ringo and a group of summoners grappling with their own past in a city on the brink of destruction. Like other JRPGs, Soul Hacker 2 has a variety of optional activities. One of them is to feed the characters different meals.

More about food buffs in Soul Hackers 2
After defeating the tutorial boss, players can purchase and consume meals. One thing to keep in mind is that if the player exits their Hideout and goes to the overworld, the consumed food buffs will trigger and remain active for the duration of the time they spend in the overworld. However, the player’s boosts disappear when they leave the overworld.
Another thing to remember is the character’s face icon while selecting a meal in the safehouse. This indicator shows how much the character enjoys the dish. Depending on how happy the face icon is, larger buffs will be triggered.
Soul Hacker 2 is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
