Fans of Atlus's Shin Megami Tensei and its sub-series Persona have been eagerly waiting for more news about Atlus's upcoming release of Persona 2: Innocent Sin in North America, the game's first official release outside of Japan. Not just content with giving out the game's release date, the publisher has announced that alongside some new screenshots showing off the game's "Rumor" system which affects events in the game and releasing a new trailer.
The PSP port has been modified to support the PSP's widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio and higher resolution display and audio. It also features extras not found in the original PlayStation version of the game, including new sidequests in the game's Climax Theater and the choice of switching between the remastered and original soundtracks, which should make those who were annoyed at the change in the original Persona PSP port very happy.
Persona 2: Innocent Sin will be released on September 20 in North America. All pre-order copies of the game will come with a special 10-track soundtrack CD featuring music from the game.
