Persona 2: Innocent Sin PSP Dated For Japan
Dear Atlus: English release, please? We'll bake you cookies!
11.30.10 - 1:07 PM

Famitsu has confirmed that the upcoming PSP port of Persona 2: Innocent Sin will be released on March 3, 2011 in Japan. Interested gamers will need to evoke 6,279 (or $75.12 US) from their wallets to purchase a copy.

The game will feature a number of improvements to the interface and gameplay, perhaps the most substantial being the inclusion over 100 remixed music tracks by composer Shoji Meguro. Purists needn't worry, as the original music will be included in the game as well. The interface will also receive enhancements in the form of new cut-in battle animations, icons to show the mood of demons during combat, and a mini-map with party status information on the field screen. As a result of the streamlined battle interface, the Fusion Spell system has been made more user-friendly, and familiar summons like Shikigami and King Frost are set to make appearances.

Other refinements include the ability to switch between three difficulty settings at any time, a new opening movie and theme song, and a data install feature to reduce load times.

There is also of course, the new opening movie, and in an interview with Famitsu, Meguro, who is also the game's director, explained Satellite was chosen for this because his staff was fond of their previous work, like Macross F. He also mentioned that he would love to work with Satellite again if, say, Eternal Punishment were to get a remake as well (keep your fingers crossed!).

Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP has not been announced for North America at this time. (This editor is weeping silently as he writes.)
