The new trailer presents viewers with Persona 2: Innocent Sin's dark, disturbing narrative. When rumors start to become reality, including one that the emblem of the famed Seven Sisters High School is cursed and will disfigure its wearer's face, paranoia and panic rule the day. This calamity, combined with the protagonists discovering their latent abilities and harnessing their powers to uncover the origins of the curse, offers players a mature, memorable narrative that is still novel over ten years since its original release. In addition to the new trailer, ATLUS also today released a new batch of screenshots focused on Innocent Sin's unique, central Rumor system.
Over 12 years in the making, the official localization of Innocent Sin provides patient fans with a dark RPG epic about reality being twisted by rumors and high school students who must draw on their inner strengths, their Personas, to bring back order. Taking advantage of PSP system's 16:9 aspect ratio, higher resolution display, superior audio, and increased horsepower, this remastered version of one of the pinnacles of ATLUS' flagship Shin Megami Tensei franchise delivers the game in style with a sleek new interface, new sidequests in the Climax Theater, and the player's choice of the fully remixed or original soundtrack.
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP system is currently scheduled to release in North America on September 20. Each and every launch copy of Innocent Sin will be a special boxed release with a bonus 10-track music CD featuring a mix of songs from the game's moody and haunting soundtrack. Fans are strongly urged to pre-order as supplies will be limited.

About SMT: Persona 2: Innocent Sin
The story takes place in Sumaru City, Japan, population 1,280,000. Its protagonist attends Seven Sisters High School ("Sevens" for short), whose emblem is considered a status symbol even amongst students from other schools. Soon, though, a rumor that Sevens' emblem was actually cursed, and that wearing it would disfigure one's face, had spread around the city.
Even worse, the rumor came true...
And it was only the beginning of a string of rumors becoming reality, one after another...
Before long, the protagonists discover the power to summon another side of them called "Personas," which they use to investigate the strange incidents around the city, all while facing their own personal demons as well. Time is once again on the march...
