Persona 2 Innocent SinPersona has grown to become one of Atlus’ most popular series, and the company’s noticed. Gamers have been quite supportive since the release of Persona 3, and since then have been clamoring for more. More new entries and rereleases of existing games. Atlus obviously isn’t going to keep people waiting, and turned to Famitsu to announce a PSP enhanced port of Persona 2: Innocent Sin.

Expect Persona 2: Innocent Sin PSP to look a lot like Shin Megami Tensei: Persona PSP. This means it’ll be the original PlayStation game, only with a few minor tweaks. You know, stuff like widescreen support, an optional install feature to cut loading times, mini-maps and other minor graphic and gameplay tweaks.

Persona 2: Innocent Sin is set in Sumaru City and primarily follows Tatsuya Suou, Eikichi Mishina and Lisa Silverman. An urban legend has supposedly come true in the city, and anyone who calls their own cell phone number will reach Joker, who will grant three of their wishes. Or turn them into catatonic Shadow Selves. The three end up encountering Joker, who claims to know them and be quite mad at them about something.

Persona 2: Innocent Sin is noteable since it is the only entry in the series to never be released outside of Japan. However, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, the second part of the story, was released in both Japan and North America. So this rerelease could be the perfect opportunity for Atlus to release Innocent Sin worldwide.

Unfortunately, there was no Persona 2: Eternal Punishment PSP announcement. Maybe if Innocent Sin does well enough, Eternal Punishment will get a similar makeover.
