The Persona series has built a strong cult following in the West over the last several years, and its fans will finally get a chance to play the one chapter that never made it to the United States. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin will be releasing on the PSP in North America this coming fall. Over 12 years in the making, Innocent Sin aims to have all the features of a great PSP remake – enhanced visuals, 16:9 widescreen, new interface, original sidequests, and an optional remastered soundtrack. No word yet on the typically awesome special editions Atlus is famous for, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
Persona 2 is credited as where the franchise found its own identity and distinguished itself from its parent meta series. Although the second part of the installment, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, was quickly localized after its Japanese release, this first chapter unfortunately never made it.
