Watch a Persona 2: Innocent Sin PSP Trailer Get an even better look at what's new in the remake. 02.17.11 - 9:44 PM
You've seen many screenshots on the updated version of Persona 2: Innocent Sin (and if you haven't, the gallery is further below), but now you can check out the new features in the latest PV below:
One of these features is a 'Theater Mode' where you can access side quests (after apprarently helping to spread rumours around town). In-game, you can go to the Climax Theater in Sumaru City to watch movies in a rather lifelike setting. The movies are actually the sidequests, which you can get to by talking to Motoko Mitsugi. While these sidequests will involve various characters from the game, they don't necessarily tie in to the main story. From these you get items and also a ranking which affects your dealings with Motoko.
One of the quests, Charisma Classroom, was produced by the director of the Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner series, Kazuyuki Yamai. Your goal is to interview Naozumi Kariyazaki, a 'charisma teacher' at one of the schools, whose students have been excelling on exams. One of the things he has his students do is provide 'ideal self' info on a specific profile site for each class. You're led around the school by Musubu Torikiri, another teacher, and come across another, older teacher by the name of - wait for it - Minato. After hearing some strange sounds during the interview, your quest will naturally lead you into a battle.
Persona 2: Innocent Sin for the PlayStation Portable will be released in Japan on April 14th. No North American release has been announced as of yet.
