Nope, P1 for PSP only has the one "modern" soundtrack.

And it's great.

To each his own. But I think it sucks in comparison to the original score. Yeah it has some enjoyable tracks here and there, but sooner or later every track becomes annoying. Not to mention that the original soundtrack was more in the tone with the game than the one from the PSP.

I mean, watch the intro of the original game and then watch the new one... what the hell right? The new one is your generic anime opening thing and it has nothing of the impact of the original opening, the same goes for the soundtracks of both games.

It's worth mentioning that most of the new updated soundtrack is arranged by Atsushi Kitajoh, as Shoji Meguro is focusing on Catherine.

For anyone who doesn't know any previous work of this man, I'll leave this link from VGMdb.

I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Although that chained up girl part took the cake.

Can't freaking wait for this game. Who knows, they might add a hidden trailer for Persona 5, a la The Sly Collection.

I'm a bit wary of this since I didn't really enjoy Eternal Punishment (had to use a guide to negotiate with enemies for cards and to unveil combo spells).

They're very similar in terms of gameplay. I know they've added a color coded chart to gauge demon emotion so it's easier to negotiate with them now.

Looks like there will be some cool new sidequests:

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

It even has a friggin' quest creator!

http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/03/23/persona_2_quests/

Update:

http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/03/24/persona_2_update/

    * Your quest creations can be set in Karukozaka High School or St. Hermelin High School.
    * The mode offers a number of background settings within the schools.
    * You can position up to 10 NCPs on each map, setting their precise position and an action that they initiate.
    * You can freely set the items that you receive during events and as rewards for winning battle
    * For events, you can set the location, characters and dialogue. Dialogue can be freely created. You can also use generic characters or characters from the main game.

As mentioned earlier, the magazine does not say if the game will allow you to exchange these quests with other players. Of course, this would make some sense given how powerful the edit tools appear to be.





Holy crap!

Wow, that is pretty cool.

I really HOPE that you can exchange quests between other players - as the creator you would already know how to do it.

have they changed the method for choosing attacks at all? i hated the queing of attacks and hoping they execute in the right order.

You could change the order of the attacks yourself - no hoping necessary.

I'm a bit disappointed they aren't enhancing the graphics at all. I've always really dug the character design and art style overall of Persona 2, but IMO the graphics don't do it justice. The character sprites and pixelated 3D environments just look bland. Oh well, that's my only complaint. Still looking forward to playing this.
