Trivia / Persona 2

  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Surprisingly, Jun in the English version. In the Japanese Innocent Sin, he is given a very deep but reserved voice. When a replica of Jun is faced as a boss in Eternal Punishment, he is given the voice of a young girl in the English dub.
  • Fan Translation: Innocent Sin got one a few years prior to its Updated Re-release, and not only was Atlus aware of it, they gave it props for quality and accuracy.
  • Genius Bonus: There's several small bits of trivia, ranging from Aztec mythology to the significance of the name Maya and Maia.
    • The publishing company Maya works at, Kismet, is a synonym for "destiny".
      • And, of course, all the Personae (except Tatsunoshin Suou, Maihime Amano, Junnosuke Kuroda, and Alfred/Yamoaka from Eternal Punishment) are from real mythologies.
  • Network to the Rescue: Since the remake of Eternal Punishment was not going to be localized, Sony instead decided to release the original PS1 version on PSN for those who wanted to play it.
  • No Export for You: The original release of Innocent Sin was never released outside of Japan, whilst Eternal Punishment was also released in America. The Innocent Sin remake for PSP was released worldwide, but the Eternal Punishment remake has not been released outside of Japan, making it the only Persona game never to receive a release in Europe in some capacity.
  • One-Hit Wonder: Ginji.
  • The Other Darrin: For Maya, Wendee Lee replaces Lani Minella in the US for the PSP version.
  • Relationship Voice Actor: Takehito Koyasu as Tatsuya, Akiko Yajima as Maya. So, uh, Zechs? Why is Relena now your Cool Big Sis instead of your little sister?
    • Also, Tekkaman Evil and Blade can potentially team up to fight the Nazis!
  • What Could Have Been: Supposedly, it was planned that you can influence Joker's One-Winged Angel form by spreading rumors that the Joker is like an angel or like a devil. The NPCs that reference this are still in the game, and both concept art and a sprite of the Joker's "devil" form exists, but it doesn't manifest as a rumor.
  • Word of Gay: A lot of this. The scenario designer, Satomi Tadashi, supports the pairing of Suou and Kurosu, and he even managed to change the character designer's own opinion of the pairing in one conversation. And let's not even go into detail about the drama CD, whoa baby. Baby chickens are a really big deal.
