Atlus To Bring Persona 2: Innocent Sin to the U.S. this Fall!
May 24, 2011

This will definitely be gaming’s biggest news bite today, but I’ve been waiting for the U.S. release of Persona 2: Innocent Sin for so long that I can’t help but share it as well. This was just about the first thing I woke up to as I checked my e-mail at about 6:00 this morning and it definitely got me moving a little faster than I otherwise might.

Here’s what Atlus had to say in the Newsletter:

The only Persona game never officially released out of Japan is finally coming to North America, and it’s making the trip with a huge list of enhancements and additions. Are you ready to finally discover this lost chapter in the Persona series?

  • 16:9 Aspect Ratio
  • Remastered Visuals and Audio
  • Remixed Musical Score (with options to toggle between that and original)
  • Streamline User Interface
  • New Quests
  • New Intro Animation
  • And More!

We love ya Atlus!


Radiant Historia is Just Around the Bend
February 8, 2011

Now if only the pre-order came with that tome!

Atlus’ Radiant Historia (DS) hits stores on Tuesday, February 15th at a retail price of $34.99 and I just wanted to remind anyone mulling over the purchase that in addition to the game (which is already receiving plenty of kind words) that those that pre-order will receive a soundtrack bonus (ah, gotta love Atlus!) featuring piano arrangements of music from the game by famed video game composer Yoko Shimomura.

Radiant Historia’s Japanese sister site has some a nice sampling of the music in the game if you’re so inclined and having listened to it for the last several minutes it certainly doesn’t disappoint. The piano arrangements are going to be a real treat.
