Just picked up this juicy tidbit from the internets. Seems that Persona 2: Innocent Sin is coming to the PSP, in Japan at least. But it's a Persona game, so a North American release seems inevitable. This excites me because Innocent Sin has never received a North America. I imagine they also have plans to bring Persona 2: Eternal Punishment to the PSP, but who cares? Innocent Sin!
Innocent Sin coming to PSP
This would be a great history lesson for Persona fans since Innocent Sin had some interesting elements and a step up from the 1st Persona. There will also be a possibility of the expansion of Persona 2, Eternal Punishment, will come to the PSP as well. http://www.siliconera.com/2010/10/26/persona-2-innocent-sin-remake-bound-for-psp/
Kind of predictable. I guess Atlus continues to get a free pass on just remaking shit over and over where every other company gets their ass over the fire for it. And yes I'm aware there's never been an official release of this game outside of Japan. But how hard would it be to just throw it up on PSN and XBLA.
If it would have gotten a PSN/XBLA release, it would have been the same broken, clunky game it was ten years ago.

Now they're cleaning up the interface and refining gameplay systems. So I'm totally cool with this. This is one of those situations where a remake is justified, I feel. I just hope they redo the dungeons as well.
also, more Meguro music=win.
" I don't quite get it. SO there's two Persona 2s? Is Eternal Sin a sequel to Persona 2 proper? Or just two halfs of the same game? And why wouldn't they just combine both into one release now? "Two parts to the same game. One is an alternate reality sorta dealy but not quite "alternate", it's a completely different game on its own but its still part of the other one. As for combination, dunno lol. Preservation I guess.
" I really hope they just put them out quickly. Next year might be bad for new releases to old consoles. "Why would you say that? I doubt they can just put out one after the other really quickly if we want polished graphics and better gameplay over all, not to mention the music being updated.
@TheChaos: No your not old fashioned, I really liked the build up to that. Maybe they will leave it alone due to complaints about the Persona 1 remake.
@AgentJ: I wouldn't say they are two halves of one game. They are both long and good experiences on their own, and I doubt it'd be good to combine them, it's just that... Innocent Sin is one game, and Eternal Punishment is basically a sequel, with the same characters, that sets off at the same time and point that IS did... It's along the lines of what Snapstacle said, but more like a retroactive timeline-diversion as a result of events in the first game... Just play both and you'll understand and be happy as well!
