It’s official, folks. Turns out that the email Atlus sent last week dated 1999 was hinting at a North American release for the PSP remake of Persona 2: Innocent Sin. Up until now, Persona 2 was the only title in the Persona franchise which had not made it to western shores.
Check out the official trailer, here:
This version of the game will host a bevy of new features and improvements. To list a few: the visuals and audio are remastered, the UI has been improved and there are new quests.
”In a world in which rumors are coming true, an unlikely team of citizens must discover and harness a hidden power dormant within each of them if they’re to have any chance of getting to the bottom of this dangerous phenomenon and stopping it before it gets out of control.”
The official website can be found here.
EXCITING title aside, this is a Nippon Icchi game you may not want to miss. It’s a hack-n-slash RPG made by the minds behind the wacky Disgaea, so think classic Zelda with plenty of twisted humor, plus some serious RPG elements. Pictured above is a screenshot from the official website, where you interface with different pages by moving an actual character around. As you can see, has a retro feel to it–not unlike 3D Dot Heroes before it. And, like 3D Dot Heroes, you can customize your character’s entire look.
That’s not all, though. You can also define what your final boss looks like. Me, I’m thinking of making him Gary Oak from Pokemon–the pinnacle of all arch-rivals. It’s the only logical thing, really. The other interesting thing about Cladun, is that dungeons are randomly generated for your dungeon-crawling pleasure.
