You may have heard (we’re guessing!) Atlus is bringing Persona 2: Innocent Sin to PSP. Similar Shin Megami Tensei: Persona, Atlus gave the 1999 PsOne game a facelift. Let’s take a look at how the PSP version stacks up against the original.
Screenshots from the fan translated PsOne game are on the left, PSP screens are on the right.
Atlus really modernized the battle interface with useful additions like a turn order and emotion gauge during demon negotiation. The character portraits make Persona 2: Innocent Sin feel more like the later Persona games too. Also during combat, Persona 2: Innocent Sin has cut-in screens when you use sync skills, a feature not in the PsOne release.
While Atlus updated Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP, the game has an option to play through the game with the original music and opening movie. Persona 2: Innocent Sin is slated for a winter release in Japan.
