In 1999, Atlus released the original Persona 2 for the PlayStation. Subtitled Tsumi (Japanese for Sin), It was the first game in the duology, but did not receive an English translation. Its sequel, Batsu (Punishment) did, however. The game was released in Japan and North America in 2000, revitalizing Atlus’ USA division.
Eleven years later, Atlus remade Sin and Punishment for the PSP, and this time, Sin got an official translation.
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 succeeds in the same way that some of the most beloved and famous JRPG’s did: with great characters and a great story. Persona 3 is a story about bonds and how they can make people more powerful. It’s also a story rife with tragedy and loss, and one of those few games that tackles issues of family dysfunction that games rarely address. The characters’ personal obstacles are so poignant. This LP helped remind me of why I loved this game in the first place.
March 28, 2011: I maxed out Fuuka’s Social Link. We made a cake together and are it in Fuuka’s room at the dorm. Then she gave Kasumi some headphones that she made, with “amazing” sound quality. She said that she gave them to Kasumi just because she wanted to.
So we unlocked Scathach “The Teacher”, the ultimate Priestess Persona.
I like the music that plays when you max out an S. Link. It’s pretty.
