The original Persona was a sleeper hit, lauded for its twisted, nonstandard story and battle system. This November, Atlus will release Persona 2: Eternal Punishment in the U.S. The follow-up to the Japan-only Persona 2: Innocent Sin, Eternal Punishment continues the story of a troupe of high school students that battle the forces of evil three years after the original Persona. A curse has befallen Sumaru City that turns rumor into reality. Players must use this curse to their advantage--manipulate the town's rumors and you'll change reality as well. As with the previous Persona games, players can negotiate with demons in order to summon them later. And, of course, Persona 2 features the dark, ultra-mod art of Kazuma Kaneko. We don't see too many RPGs like this in the U.S.--adult-themed games that take place in the modern-day world. Atlus has suggested that if there's enough demand, Innocent Sin may make it over here as well, so let's hope they sell some!
