Update: It’s been confirmed, Atlus now has a website up for the game where you can learn about title and pre-order it.
Atlus recently sent out an email modeled after a newsletter dated June 23th 1999. The news coverage, giving off a feeling as if one has traveled back in time, is quite charming as it discusses things such as Y2K and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. But the important thing to notice is the rather conspicuous line that states that absolutely no new games were released that day in Japan. In fact, a little research shows that Persona 2: Innocent Sin was released for Playstation on that date.
While not an official announcement, this could hint of a localization for Innocent Sin’s PSP port in the US. Personally, I can’t wait if that proves to be the case. I played some of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, which is the second part of the Persona 2 duology, but sadly never finished it. Since I’d like to pick it up again, playing Innocent Sin would be a good start. At the very least, Atlus knows how to tease its audience with style. Check out the whole retro newsletter after the jump.
