Atlus' Shin Megami Tensi: Persona 2: Innocent Sin would win just about any "longest videogame name" contest (multiple colon category). You want to know what else it wins? It wins the award for "first trailer and screen shots I saw today." For those that don't know, Shin Megami Tensi: Persona 2: Innocent Sin is the dark Japanese RPG dealing with high school students, demons, demon negotiation, and Persona summoning. It was the only entry in the Persona series to never be released outside of Japan, but that changes with the worldwide PSP release of Shin Megami Tensi: Persona 2: Innocent Sin on September 20th.
NEW "NEGOTIATION AND SUMMONING" TRAILER RELEASED FOR SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI: PERSONA 2: INNOCENT SIN FOR PSP SYSTEM
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 -- ATLUS today released a new "Negotiation and Summoning" trailer for the highly anticipated Shin Megami Tensei®: Persona®2: Innocent Sin for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, the one entry in the publisher's acclaimed Persona series of roleplaying games never to be released outside of Japan.
The new trailer shows off the title's deep and addicting Demon Negotiation and Persona Summoning features. Players will have opportunities to talk to hostile demons they encounter in battle, potentially persuading them to avoid conflict, give them assistance, or even getting them to provide a special card that lets the player summon new Personas with unique abilities. The unpredictable nature of many of the demons, combined with the many available negotiating tactics, makes for an incredibly nuanced sub-game and offers players tremendous depth and replay value.
Over 12 years in the making, the official localization of Innocent Sin provides patient fans with a dark RPG epic about reality being twisted by rumors and high school students who must draw on their inner strengths, their Personas, to bring back order. Taking advantage of PSP system's 16:9 aspect ratio, higher resolution display, superior audio, and increased horsepower, this remastered version of one of the pinnacles of ATLUS' flagship Shin Megami Tensei franchise delivers the game in style with a sleek new interface, new sidequests in the Climax Theater, and the player's choice of the fully remixed or original soundtrack.
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP system is currently scheduled to release in North America on September 20. Each and every launch copy of Innocent Sin will be a special boxed release with a bonus 10-track music CD featuring a mix of songs from the game's moody and haunting soundtrack. Fans are strongly urged to pre-order as supplies will be limited.
