Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, the parallel partner to Innocent Sin in the Persona 2 duology, launches on the North American PlayStation Network tomorrow, Sony announced.
Unfortunately, there was no mention of whether Eternal Punishment would be released in other regions, nor was there any mention of what the game would be priced.
Here’s a description of this earlier Persona title, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog:
A demonic trickster called The Joker has cursed Sumaru City, home to the Seven Sisters High School. His curse has the ability to turn rumor into fact, which causes all sorts of trouble. Gradually gruesome murders fill the land the school’s principal happens to be one of the victims and all sorts of monsters and demons begin showing up. Maya Amano, a cub reporter for a popular teen magazine is on the case, and she’s determined to get to the bottom of things.
Maya and her party set out on an engaging RPG adventure filled with fun twists. There are huge, hulking monsters than can be outwitted and scared off rather than outfought, and an innovative rumor system that can trigger events that will create entirely new story arcs and let you get your hands on valuable objects. Sprinkled throughout the game are 80 personal summons, or magic spells. You’ll meet stronger and more powerful foes the higher your levels of magic grow, until in the end it’s down to you and the Joker.
