Persona 2: EP on PSP expands on Tatsuya's story

8:00 AM on 03.01.2012 // Bob Muir

Believe it or not, I'm still working through Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. I originally started it right after I beat the fan-translation of the game's first half, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, but had to step away for a while to "cleanse my pallet," and just never came back to it. As I reach a lull in my backlog, I was just thinking of picking up where I left off, but then Atlus announces the inevitable PSP port of Eternal Punishment to complement last year's Innocent Sin port.

The PSP port will feature new story content, which Famitsu has revealed will focus on Tatsuya, the protagonist of Innocent Sin. Maya, one of the party members from Innocent Sin, was made the main character in Eternal Punishment, but Tatsuya apparently still plays an important part in the story. This PSP-exclusive scenario will expand on what happens to Tatsuya when he's out of the spotlight. The scenario is being written by Tadashi Satomi, the writer for the original Persona 2 games.

I knew this port was inevitable after Innocent Sin came out on PSP, but now I'm torn. Atlus will surely bring this out in the US like every other recent Persona game. Do I finish playing the copy of Eternal Punishment that I can watch on the big screen, or wait for the handheld version with the improved translation and additional story?
