A batch of fresh, regrettably lo-res screenshots have surfaced for the PSP port of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. The images show off refreshed character art, some additional story material, and a new opening animation produced by Madhouse. Fans can get a fifteen second peep show of the opening in the latest preview.
The up-to-date art is looking very well done and makes the original cast look even better compared to their 1990s counterparts. A number of fresh faces will be added to the game in new material that focuses on the game's protagonist, Tatsuya. The unique content will be penned by the game's original writer, Tadashi Satomi. However, the new cast additions -- along with the retouched character art -- are designed by Masayuki Doi, who worked on Trauma Center titles such as Under the Knife 2 and New Blood.
Along with the retouched character art and game opening, Eternal Punishment will be getting a new soundtrack arrangement. The interface has also gotten a few fixes, and there's been some new side quests added as well. For those wanting to ride the nostalgia train, however, they can chose to play the game with both the original opening and music.
No release dates outside of Japan have been confirmed for Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.
