Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (very) soon to be a PSOne Classic

Persona 2 Eternal Punishment

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, the second part of Persona 2, is coming to the PlayStation Network as a PSOne Classic this week in North America.

Eternal Punishment is set a few months after Persona 2: Innocent Sin, with both games acting as chapters of the one storyline which is a sequel to Revelations: Persona – the first game in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series. The original PlayStation version of Eternal Punishment was released in North America in 2000, however Innocent Sin remained exclusive to Japan until its PSP remake released worldwide in 2011. Unfortunately, the PSP remake of Eternal Punishment has not been localised – so here we are, with the PlayStation original being re-released via PSN instead.

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment will be available on the US PSN any day now, however there is no word on whether other regions will too see the PSOne Classic. Such a release would signify Eternal Punishment‘s first release in PAL territories.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Revelations: The Demons Slayer

Before the rise of anime in the West, using Japanese titles for your game’s title was considered marketing death for some reason. So while we have Shin Megami Tensei over here now, the first titles in the series to be released outside of Japan did not carry that title – they were named Revelations instead. Revelations: The Demon Slayer (originally entitled Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible) is one of many side stories in the series.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Tactics Ogre

Tactics Ogre is a remake of the first game in the series, Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen, originally released for the Super Nintendo in 1993. Some may get confused by the series naming, which seems to shift between Ogre Battle and Tactics Ogre with each release – made more annoying in this case, where the game has been released under both names.


Preorder Persona 2 remake, get soundtrack

The upcoming PSP remake of Persona 2: Innocent Sin will include a CD soundtrack in first print run copies, along with a nice outer box. Atlus USA representatives suggest preordering the game to ensure that you get the soundtrack, as supply will be limited. The game also features sunglasses-wearing Hitler, pictured above.

The soundtrack will include 10 tracks from the game’s musical score, composed by Shoji Meguro. The tracks will be a mix of original recordings, remixes and tracks not used in the game.

The Persona 2 story is covered by two different games – Innocent Sin, which was only released in Japan, and Eternal Punishment, which takes place in a parallel world where the events of Innocent Sin never happened.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Kwirk

How about something a little different

Kwirk was a maze/puzzle game released by Acclaim for the Game Boy when the console was in its infancy. As a result, the game became something of a hit – enough to prompt Acclaim to use the character in a cartoon called The Power Team (and later Acclaim Masters), which was basically a knock off of Captain N: The Game Master, but only featuring characters that appeared in Acclaim video games. Freaky.
