Save Your Persona 2: Innocent Sin Data For Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

By Spencer . May 11, 2012 . 5:34pm

imageAtlus added a feature to Persona 2: Eternal Punishment that lets players inherit their save data from Persona 2: Innocent Sin.


You don’t need to beat Persona 2: Innocent Sin to utilize this feature either. Persona 2: Eternal Punishment will retain Tatsuya’s level and stats. The fusion skill list, monster conversation commands, and spare tarot cards will transfer into Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. Atlus hints that transferring Innocent Sin save data may change some event scenes in Eternal Punishment too.


Persona 2: Eternal Punishment comes out in Japan on May 17.

    Wasn’t this in the original too? So it’s not like they’re adding something new. 

    • Transferring save data wasn’t in the original.

      • Saraneth

        It was, actually, at least in the Japanese version. 

        • Ah, I see. Obviously they didn’t keep that for the American version because we didn’t get Innocent Sin for PS1. 

  • Brandon001

    OMG, SRSLY everytime you guys post up EP news i legit frenzy to see if its a localization announcement

    dammit siliconera >_>

  • GaiunxWolfenX

    the transfer save option was in the Japanese ver. There you could retain your tatsuya at the level you had in persona 2 tsumi (innocent sin) and load that save data in batsu (eternal punishment)

    •  I knew about this too, that’s why I was looking foward to these ports.

      • GaiunxWolfenX

        me too i really wanted to use a Tatsu i trained in eternal once i found out about that particular option, ATLUS you better bring this extremely great game (best of persona games in my opinion, both parts of two) 

  • That’s great. Now announce the game in the US already… ,(._.t)

    I can’t control it…

  • Jirin

    But…but…doesn’t that contradict the premise?  (Except for the Tatsuya stuff)

  • Crevox

    Atlus will probably port it.

  • I swear every bloody time I see a article for Eternal Punishment, I get alittle disappointed to see it’s not a localization blip. I need to stop psyching myself out.

  • Rogerrmark

     In the original japanese version,you could unlock a special Persona for EP if you had an IS save on your memory card.

  • KuroiKen

    Not really interested in the feature and P2 Batsu portable alike. 
    Batsu wasn’t that much of an interesting game for me after Tsumi. Don’t know what really made it worse.

  • Just great!! Atlus keeps enhancing and adding features to older Persona titles but can’t even give us one hint/screenshot/information about Persona 5! ಥ_ಥ

  • Alexander Aubert

    is it just me or persona 2 (both) story is better than persona 3&4?

    • Sorrows_Neptune

      Practically anyone whose actually played all of the Persona’s will agree that Persona 2 is the best.

      • I played EP back in the day.  Holding off of IS until we hopefully get EP for psp.  I think it was more of a story driven game, but Persona 3 had a good one too.  I think I was too distracted by the dungeon crawling.  In P3&4 you got rewarded for it, and in P2 you weren’t.  I’d like to just play all of them again.  They were all good for different reasons.

      • I’ve played all of them and i like 4’s the most i mean it’s a matter of opinion 

  • Tae chan

    Yes, it is. And overall both Persona 2 > P3&4. Like old gamedesign with rumors, demon conversations and other awesome things.

    •  Persona 2 > P3&4

      Only if you think mindless dungeon crawling and lame plots where the villain steals your emotional energy are superior. LOL

      • LynxAmali

         Ever heard of opinions?

        Lame plot pretty much hits all the Persona games. It especially hits the first game and 3’s FES portion hard though.

        Just my opinion.

        Can’t wait for this.

        • Someone else thinks P3 has a lame story? I love that game, but you are totally right.

          • LynxAmali

            I like the main story of P3 in concept but the execution sort of left a bad taste in my mouth. I did like the build up to the ending though. It’s one of my favorite endings for a video game in recent memory.

            Then FES came out and spat out what I loved about 3’s plot and characters. It was, for the most part, really hard to understand why these characters that I’d grown to love basically started DE-DEVELOPING into ANGST, ANGST, ANGST blobs of unrecognizable origin.

          • Victoria [Rokuso3]

            THIS. I really liked the P3 ending, maybe even more than Eternal Punishment’s. Well, no, but almost. I’ve beaten P3 six times, but I never could finish The answer on P3FES; the characters really change, and P3 didn’t need a sequel to begin with. I didn’t really like most characters on P3, but seeing them on The Answer, everything was much worse.

      • In my opinion, grinding was what hurt P2 the most, but the plot was a lot better. Or at least it sounded more dangerous.

        But yeah, P3/4 can go do it’s own thing. :) I just miss the good ol’ grimdark days.

      • DDanny

        P3&3 > Persona 2
        Only if you think mindless dungeon crawling and lame plots where you fight evil by moonlight, win love by daylight, and fight creatures inside a tv world are superior. LOL
