Catherine in the US this summer

Catherine in the US this summer

As we announced in express links yesterday, the weird Catherine will be released this summer in the US. Till then you can have a look at the teaser and images included in this news, or you can watch the first minutes of the game if you missed it.

Press Release :


IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - MARCH 1, 2011 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today revealed a Summer 2011 North American release for Catherine, a game in which "falling for a girl" is meant literally, for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

"Catherine is an unprecedented exploration of the pleasures and horrors of love," commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus. "As Vincent, a man recently succumbed to the irresistible beauty of the game's titular diversion, players find themselves swept into a treacherous love triangle. Catherine's core themes-those of free will, of the delicate nature of relationships and the choices we make within them, marry perfectly with the intense, terror-filled gameplay that serves to accurately reflect Vincent's growing sense of anxiety. It is an experience wholly unlike any to come before it, and is certain to leave gamers talking and thinking about Vincent's tribulations long after the credits have rolled."

Catherine is currently scheduled to release in Summer 2011 for PlayStation 3 system and Xbox 360 system. The game's official website, <06b9>http://www.catherinethegame.com, will launch soon, offering more details and media. Fans who want to get their hands on more of Catherine's goods should keep an eye out for exciting extras. More to come!

I played the Japanese PS3 demo of this and it's awful. The cut scenes are great but the game itself is a super basic block puzzle game. It should be 400MS Points and nothing more.

yeah. I do wonder if this game would get any attention at all if 12yr olds weren't getting off on the cartoon sex stuff. I mean i've not heard much in the way of the puzzles being brain teasing

Don't know about this, love the art, but i'm kinda expect what Moroboshi describes.

Good news for sure. I generally like Atlus' games so this is most welcome and might be interesting as well, a mix between RPG, platforming and puzzles...sounds like an interesting enough idea, if executed right :)

Only this game is not for 12year olds as you so ignorantly put it, its a digital manga/anime story/puzzle/adventure game the publisher is taking a big risk putting it in the US and the target demographic is the videogame and Anime fans if someone gets this game expecting Call of duty type shooting and guns they are going to be very disappointed.
And 12 year olds are not supposed to be having access to 17 plus games don't they check ids at gameshops? or else the local and national news are going to have a field day with this game.

    GriftGFX And Hawaii probably won't do anything either because banning games in Hawaii would be a seriously shitty thing for local consumers and not a whole lot of other people. (20 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Thankfully Belgium isn't going to do anything without convincing the rest of Europe. (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I hope this falls completely apart based on the (obvious) broadness of the issues they're dealing with and the implications it would have downstream. This is just silly. (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX What's a "perk"? This is a difficult thing to legislate fairly. You're basically asking the government to get into game design. Phew. (22 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, it's an attack on lootboxes with perks. That is also what Belgium is talking about. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: The problem is: this isn't about "the EA model" it's a flat attack on "loot boxes", and that will harm consumers and good games. (29 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: I have been talking about the EA model the while time. And no, I'll never buy an EA game again if they don't become consumer friendly (31 minutes ago)
