THIS
THIS
THISSSS
AT LAST A REMAKE FOR THIS SERIES FFFFU-

Whew, I almost lose interest of this at all and only read the wiki summary for this :( but at last I could've a chance to play it...

I hope they will also do Eternal Punishment in the future.

leodamine 2010-10-26 21:30

Hm.......maybe will get. I didn't really like persona 1 much, so I might just get it used and return it if I don't like it.

GundamAce 2010-10-26 22:15

Ah, looks good. I only hope that Innocent Sin will be released in English this time despite the whole Hitler issue.

FlareKnight 2010-10-26 22:21

Looks pretty nice. Nice to see games like this one get remade anyways.

Natsuki Hyuga 2010-10-26 23:06

YES. YES YES YES YES YES. ILU ATLUS. YOU NEVER FAIL TO MAKE ME SHED otome MANRY TEARS WITH THE REMAKESSSSSSSS~~~

Persona 2's dual titles are probably one of my top favourite from PS one era (and prolly even my personal favourite from Persona series as much as 3 is a lovely take on another flavour), as much as back at that time, Tsumi really confuses me even with the help of someone who is good at Japanese :heh: But still, I'm so happy with the remake at the moment. Also a good indication that Batsu is gonna be remake too~~

Hopefully this time Tsumi will be localized officially (i.e: No need for people waiting for English patch, for those poor souls who don't speak moonspeak), and that this remake has new contents :)

Now I must go back to the damn 150 pages worth of memorizing book... Q_Q

If I ever get a PSP, I'll fer sure consider this a purchase.

.............but before that, I have to freakin' finish my Persona 4 file already.

Von Himmel 2010-10-27 06:28

I haven't played Persona 2 before....but did they changed the character portrait or something ? It doesn't looks like Kazuma Kaneko (assuming that he's the one who drew it back in PS1) ...

In-game character portraits in both IS and EP PS1 are actually drawn by Soejima. (Yeah he is in ATLUS since way back before) Kazuma Kaneko only did the external/promotional arts (those that we see so much in the net) and is the main character designer, quite frankly, aside from being the well-known 'demon designer' he is known nowadays :heh: P2's in-game portraits were... Non-Kaneko esque to say at the very least.

EDIT: The info is taken from Wiki Japan. I know Megaten Wiki has the info too but w/e, my brain is bleaching!

But the remake seems to revamp the full body image (like in the scan), as in they are redrawn by Soejima this time. The colouring is a dead ringer for Soejima's aesthetique lol Then again, Soejima did work as co-character designer too back then.

/me as Kaneko fan : a bit :( @ the lack of Kaneko's image love.

Dorfl 2010-10-27 12:48

Nope, Atlus. You still don't get me, not going to buy a PSP. Not unless you put Persona 5 on it or something. That reminds me that I still haven't played my PS1 copy of P2, though.

Edit: which magazine was this in, btw? I should really subscribe to some of these J-mags.

Shiroth 2010-10-29 03:16

First look into the game can be found over on andriasang.

spikexp 2010-10-29 10:48

I would prefer if they could put it on PSN, so that I can play on my PS3 ans my PSP
Well, I might consider them even if I've already played them on my CFW psp.

Kazu 2010-10-29 13:52

Cool now I can almost finally say I played all personas

although I never played any of the persona 2's

I remember there was a

Spoiler for boss:


Do you think they'll keep him there or not, I think they will keep him there since they've shown him in so may times in countless shows (family guy for example)

Excellent, I like the original "Der Doppelgänger" OP.

Also this. P2, IMO, has the best version of the Velvet Room theme.

We're in the 21st century. Barring some stupid Sony shenanigans* we should get the entire thing as is.

*that's just my continuing bitterness over Soul Hackers being denied an official Western release back in the day by SCEA because it's 2-D.

I always thought that homosexual thing was the issue that Innocent Sin didn't make it in the west, where as Eternal Punishment did.

Von Himmel 2010-10-30 10:16

I heard that it's the Nazi issues...Well, Dragon Age still keep their selling even though there's homosexual things in their romance path, so I guess it's no problem for P2 to be released here just because of that reason.

The first time I've heard of it.

Yeah, I can see why you call it the best velvet room theme in persona :heh: The piano at the first few seconds are amazing...but still, the vocal is not that good imo compared to p3 and p4.

Both are the believable reasons. Although to be fair on the homosexual part, it was almost not present in the storyline.

Spoiler for Minor spoiler-no name mentioned and as vague as usual:

Still, it''s pretty much changeable if Sony/Atlus wants it (back in 1990-ish, we get mucked up, incorrigible translations hoho. Actually even now, but whatever.), so I kinda doubt the validity of the issue.

Personally though I am leaning to the Nazis issue, but just as reasonable issue. As long as Atlus keeps silent about it, no one will ever know why IS is never brought to the West.

Ahem, to go back on the topic, the new OP animation is really incredible- very smooth and unique :3 Somehow I really want to get new animated sequences now :'I

Dorfl 2010-10-31 15:14

The Nazi thing means German players are probably out of luck, huh?

Shiroth 2010-11-12 10:51

Some new information and plenty of new screenshots can be found over on andriasang.

I'm sure loving the visual look of this game, and seeing as though i've never played the second title before, i'm sure to have a blast. Guess i should go bash out the first game before that happens though.

YamaMX 2010-11-12 13:09

Probably one of, if not my favorite RPG of all time. I loved the late sequels (P3/P4) but the style of Persona 2 and it's mature tone is unrivaled. It's great to see it on PSP with a new UI, hopefully North America will get a legit localization.
