[E3] Persona 2: Eternal Punishment US Bound!
Atlus just announced a few days ago that they would be releasing another "Mystery RPG" by the end of 2000. Today at E3, Atlus revealed that new RPG to be Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, the yet-unreleased sequel to Persona 2: Innocent Sin. Part of the popular Megami Tensei series, Persona 2 is being developed by Atlus of Japan.
Although hopes were up about a possible double release of both halves of the game, Atlus will only be releasing the latter half, coming out in Japan on June 29th. Persona 2: Eternal Punishment takes place in the same universe as Innocent Sin and has characters in common, including Maya Amano, who gets the position of main character this time around, and Innocent Sin's protagonist Tatsuya Suou.
