Free soundtrack CD with launch copy of SMT: Persona 2


ATLUS announced today that every launch copy of Shin Megami Tensei®: Persona®2: Innocent Sin for PSP will include a free mini-soundtrack CD featuring 10 tracks from the game's musical score. This is the first game in the Persona series of roleplaying games to be released outside of Japan.

Complementing its dark, sinister narrative, Innocent Sin's music is appropriately moody and haunting.  Shoji Meguro, the composer responsible for the critically acclaimed music found in Persona 3 FES, Persona 4, and the new release Catherine, has completely redone the soundtrack for the PSP system remaster, taking advantage of superior audio technology without compromising the feel and intensity of the score. 

"As a nod to the fact that fans have the in-game option to toggle between the original soundtrack and the new version, the bonus disc's 10 tracks fall into multiple categories: songs remixed specifically for the new PSP system release; tracks directly from the original PlayStation game; tracks specially arranged for this bonus disc; and a couple songs that do not appear in the game." Said an ATLUS rep.

The bonus Innocent Sin soundtrack CD will be bundled with the game inside a collectible outer box, but fans are still strongly urged to pre-order as supplies will be limited.

SMT: Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP system is currently scheduled to release in North America this Fall.  For more info, visit the official website at

About SMT: Persona 2: Innocent Sin

The story takes place in Sumaru City, Japan, population. Its protagonist attends Seven Sisters High School, 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.

And the rumor comes true.

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.
