Persona 2: Innocent Sin - Out Now!

It's not entirely surprising news, considering that Atlus has already brought 1 and 3 to PSP. This one is a remake of Persona 2: Innocent Sin Tsumi, the half of the PSOne Persona 2 saga that was released only in Japan. It was fan-translated in December 2008. No news yet on the other half that the US got, Eternal Punishment, nor any news yet on a US release, though at this point, neither would be surprising.

Persona 3 and 4 were great on the PS2. (Haven't played 3 on the PSP yet), but P1 has aged terribly almost to the point of being unplayable (for me at least).

I've heard good things about P2IS. There's probably a pretty good chance this will come to the U.S.

Fatlus should just pay the people who did the fan translation to use their translation so they can release it in the US ASAP. This game is awesome and I will buy it day one.

Day 1! Will finally have the complete Persona 2 experience when I put it with my PS1 Eternal Punishment.

I still haven't gotten into this series, but I'm hoping for Persona 3 Portable as an Xmas gift. Heard a lot of great things about 2, so I'm sure this will end up being a buy for me as well.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the PS1 version of Persona2 incomplete?

Yeah, it was a 2 part game. We got Eternal Punishment, the first half, but Innocent Sin never made it here.

Here I thought Eternal Punishment was the second half (since it included all of those hanging references to Innocent Sin characters)?

Wrong wrong wrong. First of all, they are two separate games with a connecting story. Innocent Sin (Tsumi) was never released here, probably due to the fellow in Paco's post. Eternal Punishment (Batsu) is the direct sequel and it was released here.

Well either way least both will be in U.S, and maybe they'll announce a remake of Eternal Punishment before most of us finish Innocent Sin.

The intro.

The animation is fantastic, the song can go DIAF. I swear to god if they change the music to shitty J-animu crap like Persona 1 PSP I am going to cry.

You should probably get the tissues now. I didn't play P1P, but if the music is closer to P3 than P1, then I'm all for it.

P3's music is not terrible. In fact I would say it is good. 4 is where the music got way too animu.

Can't wait! I've played EP so many times, and never got around to IS. Now I shall!

It's not super-clear, but it sounds like they're arranging rather than replacing the music of the original.

The game's music is seeing arrangements. Among the changes mentioned by Meguro is the use of actual guitar instruments. Players will be able to switch between the original and arranged version in the config menu.


AW THANK THE LAWD

I'm also glad they are changing the battle system to be more like EP's. They are at their core identical, but EP had some very welcome UI changes.

Confirmation of a US release? An Atlus newsletter dated June 23th 1999 just came out, the original PS1 version of Persona 2's Japanese release date was June 24th 1999.

Thanks for making me feel old Atlus!

Oh and I pretty much knew they would eventually release IS here, they'd just be stupid not to.

Same here. I was shocked I was the first person to post it on GAF, usually anything I find out has been up for hours.

I will murder for that to come out. Sadly I don't think they have the manpower to do that... ever.

Yeah...so far, the PSP has been an SMT fan's dream machine. I don't see them re-releasing the games they just re-released on the PS3. :P List of SMT-related games playable (in English!) on my PSP memory stick RIGHT NOW:

Shin Megami Tensei - SNES
Shin Megami Tensei II - SNES
Revelations: The Demon Slayer - GB
Demikids: Light - GBA
Demikids: Dark - GBA
Persona 1 - PSX
Persona 2: Innocent Sin - PSX
Persona 2: Eternal Punishment - PSX
Persona 1 Remake - PSP
Persona 3 Portable - PSP

Add to that the soon-to-be-released fan-translation of Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, and you've got a blockbuster of a little handheld for SMT fans.
