Catherine asks if you're committed in a new trailer

Here's a new trailer for Catherine, in which a bunch of geekatrons talk about getting married. Most of the video can be safely ignored, except for a bit near the end where we get to see some clips of the game with English voice acting. Yay! Game's out July 26.

New Catherine screenshots have me climbing up the walls

Get it? Climbing up the walls? Like the game?...no? Sorry. Forgive this stupid sheep. I'm just excited to know that Atlus' Catherine is coming this summer (July 26th!). I loved the Japanese version so much. Today Atlus sends ...

Answer hard questions, be in Atlus' next Catherine promo

The catch, though, is that you'll have to answer those questions in video form, specifically, as a video response to this informational clip below recorded by Atlus' resident PR maestro Aram Jabbari. All you need to do is ma...

Catherine-with-a-C to be voiced by Laura Bailey

We already know Catherine's coming to the US. Atlus announced as much. But for a game as big as this one, localization will be a key factor in its potential success. Even a Japanophile like myself knows that having a great En...

Catherine patch out in Japan...for PS3

...and guess what version I have. F*ck me. Well, they're working on the Xbox 360 version. I don't need the patch, but I want it. You'd get why I want it if you read our preview of Catherine. Here's the full details of what th...

Catherine patch details: Assist option and more retrys

You likely heard that Catherine was difficult enough to make Atlus work on a patch to make it more accessible for gamers. Now some details have come out for this upcoming patch, which is going to make easy mode even easier. I...

Preview: Catherine (Japanese version)
by Dale North

Coming right behind Atlus' official announcement of a US release for their first HD game, Catherine, is our preview of the Japanese version, which was just released a few weeks ago.

So, what have you heard? That it's not quite what you'd expect from Atlus? That it's a puzzle game? That it's horny? That it's insanely difficult? I can tell you all of that is true. What's also likely true is that just about everyone reading this preview wants Catherine (the game, not the girl) for themselves. Knowing that you've heard so much about it, and knowing that you're going to get it regardless of what I say, I can kick back, relax, and tell you exactly what I think of this game.

Buckle in, as I have a lot to say.

Read on for our preview of Catherine.

Catherine has music from Shin Megami Tensei games in it

I took a quick clip of one of my finds early in my playthrough of Atlus' Catherine to share with you. Fans of Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei will enjoy coming across music from older games in Atlus' latest puzzler/love story. I...

Troy Baker cast as Vincent for Atlus' Catherine

When you play Catherine you'll see that it's incredibly voice heavy. The entire game is voiced, all the way down to the small talk in a bar. Going through Atlus' newest puzzle/love story is a lot like watching a movie, so the...
