ATLUS released a new “Negotiation and Summoning” trailer for the highly anticipated Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP, the one entry in the publisher’s Persona series of roleplaying games never to be released outside of Japan.
The new trailer shows off the title’s Demon Negotiation and Persona Summoning features. Players will have opportunities to talk to hostile demons they encounter in battle, potentially persuading them to avoid conflict, give them assistance, or even getting them to provide a special card that lets the player summon new Personas with unique abilities. The unpredictable nature of many of the demons, combined with the many available negotiating tactics, makes for an incredibly nuanced sub-game and offers players tremendous depth and replay value.
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP 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 soundtrack. Fans are urged to pre-order as supplies will be limited.
