IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- SEPTEMBER 21, 2011 -- ATLUS today announced that the highly anticipated  Shin Megami Tensei®: Persona®2: Innocent Sin for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, the one entry in the publisher's acclaimed Persona series of roleplaying games never to be released outside of Japan, is now available in stores across North America and via PlayStation®Network.  

"The release of Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP system marks the end of a very long wait for fans of the Shin Megami Tensei franchise and its Persona subseries," commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at ATLUS.  "Not only does this new PSP system version of the game offer fans a refined, enhanced experience, improving upon the visuals, user interface, audio, and more, but it is also the only entry in the Persona series of critically acclaimed JRPGs to never be officially localized for North America."  

Over 12 years in the making, the official localization of  Innocent Sin provides patient fans with a dark RPG epic about reality being twisted by rumors and high school students who must draw on their inner strengths, their Personas, to bring back order.  Taking advantage of PSP system's 16:9 aspect ratio, higher resolution display, superior audio, and increased horsepower, this remastered version of one of the pinnacles of ATLUS' flagship  Shin Megami Tensei franchise delivers the game in style with a sleek new interface, new sidequests in the Climax Theater, and the player's choice of the fully remixed or original soundtrack.


Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP system is now available in stores across North America and via PlayStation Network.  Each and every physical launch copy of  Innocent Sin will be a special boxed release with a bonus 10-track music CD featuring a mix of songs from the game's haunting electronic soundtrack.  Interested fans are strongly urged to purchase soon as supplies are limited!
