Persona 2 Eternal Punishment’s PSP port has been announced for quite some time now, and fans have gotten a good dose of teasing from Atlus about the project. The game is already going to feature a new opening animation from Madhouse – the studio behind a countless number of anime favorites that include Vampire Hunter 2 Bloodlust, Occult Academy, and Chobits. Today, Atlus adds to the fanservice with a new trailer for the cult classic’s refresher.
The trailer really shows newcomers to the series how unique the Persona franchise is, and long-time fan's get a taste of what to expect when Persona 2 Eternal Punishment finally reaches the store shelves. Snippets of gameplay tell us that not much as changed as far as the mechanics are concerned, and a look at concept art makes us appreciate the talents of the artists behind the game. Not to mention we can see what Madhouse has accomplished in terms of animation.
Persona 2 Eternal Punishment will be out in Japan on May 17, but there is still no word on whether the game will make it to the international market as well.
