Persona 2: Innocent Sin Negotiation and Summoning Trailer

There are few who would argue that the PSP library has been slim of late, with almost no noteworthy titles on the horizon. Luckily this allows some of the more niche titles to get a little more spotlight – hopefully this will be the case with Persona 2: Innocent Sin. The latest trailer for this PSP remake of the PlayStation original showcases two of the more compelling aspects of early Persona titles – negotiating with demons and using tarot cards to summon personas. The negotiation system, used in Persona, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment and Persona 2: Innocent Sin, allows party members to talk to their opponents rather than fight them. Project the right attitude and answer questions correctly and you might convince the demon to fight for you or gain tarot cards that allow you to summon new personas. PlayStation 2-era Persona titles had you mix and combine personas to gain new, higher-level versions. Old school Persona fans will remember using tarot cards, gained in battle or picked up in chests, to summon new personas and augment them with additional items. Everything old is new again, and it is great to see these mechanics returning to remind us how we used to play this series in console generations past. Look for Persona 2: Innocent Sin on PSP when it releases September 20th.
