After teasing a possible localization earlier last week, video game publisher Atlus has finally announced that they will indeed be bringing over Persona 2: Innocent Sin's PSP port to North America. Up until now, this was the only title in the Persona franchise not to be released outside Japan.
Persona 2: Innocent Sin takes place shortly after the events in the original Persona game in a world where recent rumors begin to become fact and a group of people gain the power of "Persona", allowing them to find out the truth of what is occurring in their town.
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.
Atlus currently has Persona 2: Innocent Sin pegged for a Fall 2011 release date in North America. Until then, fans can check out the game's official website for more details, or check out the game's official release trailer and screenshots below.
