    Inevitable

    Sounds like a remake for Eternal Punishment is planned too but couldn't fit on the UMD.

    - Coming this Winter
    - Supports Media Install
    - Soundtrack CD pre-order bonus

    - It's a "remake" like Persona 1 with balance and control improvements while based on the original game
    - The gameplay systems will be based on Eternal Punishment's refinements instead of just the original Innocent Sin
    - Soejima will be doing brand new full body illustrations for the characters, while the art staff will implement new portraits and cut-ins based on his supervision

    - When you move around you'll see status details and a minimap now, and there will be various UI improvements, etc
    - In battles you'll see the affinity of your demons, as well as character turn orders

    - Battle balance and time constrained events will be retuned to make it more user friendly
    - Difficulty can be changed on the fly in the menu
    - Voices will all be remastered, but not re-recorded

    - Brand new opening anime FMV by Satelight
    - The original opening FMV is also included
    - Arranged and Original BGM can be selected in the config menu

    I presume this one is more similar to Persona 1 than Persona 3. It looks like a remake of Persona 4 could be on the cards soon too . Hopefully their making all these remakes to drum up interest in a PS3 Persona 5.

    Apparently, Persona 2 is much better than the original. I'm hopeful this makes it to Europe since Atlus are distributing on European PSN.

    I wish they could make the battle scenes more dynamic, like Persona 3 or Persona 4. Going from that opening movie it seems characters have almost Power Ranger type transformations. I hope this one has anime cutscenes, that was one of the only things Persona 3 Portable really lacked imo.

    If they're going too all this effort remaking them on PSP I wonder if we'll see a Persona HD collection...

    This game is brill! Better than Persona 3 and 4 in some ways. If they clean up the translation work (keep the swearing though, swearing is very cool), I'm all over this.

    Swearing in video games is just pointless. All it does is limit the audience.

    This game was in the FFVII school of swearing. (Sh*t, f&$king etc.) It kind of worked in this game and wasn't frequent or anything. Fair play to the localisation team for not making too many compromises with the more risqué Japanese-friendly dialogue at least.

    Got an interesting email from Atlus just now. Newsletter from June 23rd 1999 :)

    Wikipedia tells me that's around the time Persona 2 came out in the states. Interesting...

    I'm interested, how does this game compare to Persona 3? I'm going through the portable version right now, and the rest of series are in my periphery at the moment.

    Gameplay-wise it's about halfway between Shin Megami Tensei 3 and Persona 3. With none of the social link stuff, of course.

    Thanks. We're on a bit of a roll at the moment. It's great :)

    Keep rolling!

    I predict your next game will be Devil Survivor Overclocked :)

    Which Persona game should I play first? Because I've never encountered the series before and realise there's a bunch on the PSP.
  • Deleted user 9 August 2011 18:58:44
    Ghostlight, I love you! Been buying all the game since the EU release of DDS.

    Centrifugal, I wouldn't recommend Persona 1 PSP unless you're a fan of the original. I became a fan of the SMT universe with the US version of SMT3:Nocturne but P1 is way too hard to get into.

    Innocent Sin OTOH is great, the 5-ish hours I've put into it. Tried converting it to the PSP with no success so I can't wait for this one.

    If only there was a price announcement I'd consider cancelling my Play-Asia preorder of the US version and switching, but being in Korea, the PA version is more convenient and I will actually get to play it this year... (Normally I try to support UK releases)
