Persona 2: Innocent Sin fan translation in the works


After being pleasantly surprised by Persona 3 last fall I immediately felt the need to go back and do a little research on the Persona series as a whole, to see what had come before. One interesting fact I discovered was that there were actually two Persona 2ís, Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment. Unfortunately, for the large amount of un-modded PlayStation owners that donít speak Japanese, Innocent Sin was never brought stateside by Atlus, presumably due to the amount of censoring that would have been necessary at the gameís time of release (ex: The characters kill their principal, Hitler and an army of Naziís invade the city towards the end of the game, homosexual party members, etc.).

Luckily, someone going by the moniker of Gemini is currently working on a fan translation for those of us that only speak the Kingís English. Updates on his (her?) blog track the current level of progress and some of the problems he (she?) has experienced. Who would have thought translating a game script could cause so many bugs?

While there isnít an official release date yet Gemini expects the patch to come out sometime around Christmas. As an added bonus for modded PlayStation and PlayStation 2 owners it seems the translated game will be runnable on those consoles. The rest of us will just have to not download a not ROM and not play it on our PCs.

Hey all, I've been hanging around Destructoid since late 2006. I joined the staff in 2007 as a News Contributor after flooding the tip line on a daily basis, and then I got to write stuff on the front page. Now I mostly just bum around while doing grad school stuff.
