Developed by Atlus games, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment is a direct sequel to the first game in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series, Revelations: Persona, and is part of a duology with Person 2: Innocent Sin. Both games are two chapters of the same storyline, although Innocent Sin had never seen a US release until 2011 on the PSP.
Both Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment are available as ports on the PSP, but the latter game has yet to see a localization for the US due to “unusual circumstances.” First the PSOne version of Innocent Sin doesn’t get localized for years, and now Eternal Punishment is still waiting on a localized PSP port. Funny how that works out, huh?
Differences between the PSP port and the PSOne Classics version present themselves mostly in name changes due to localization variances over the years. For example, you may know Sky Museum as the Aerospace Museum in the PSP port of Innocent Sin, or Mary as Maki Sonomura and Nate as Kei Nanjo. Other than that, the storyline is still the same and the gaming experience no less revered.
