Catherine patch details: Assist option and more retrys photo



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.

If you read our preview of Catherine you'll know that even easy mode is a bitch. Normal mode is punishing. I died 16 times in a row in level two on Normal. Level two! The patch will make easy mode actually easy, says Siliconera

Beyond this, they're adding an assist option for players to help them beat the game. Even then you'll still die often, and for that Atlus said they've relaxed the limit on retries. The retries are already fairly generous on easy, but you blow through them all so quickly that you sometimes have to restart from your last save. Yes, it's that hard!

There isn't a release date for the patch, but I'm sure it's coming soon. Atlus' Katsura Hashino said that they're working as quickly as possible to get it out, and for that reason they're keeping the patch minimal. He also teased an event scene viewer for a future patch. That would be fantastic. 

Thanks for all of this, Atlus.

Persona 4's best character (also, Kanji) get Dancing All Night trailers

Oh maaaaaaaan. I am only ever dancing as Chie in the yellow Bruce Lee Game of Death jumpsuit. Criminal to only show that off for like four seconds (:58). Either don't show it all and leave it a lovely surprise, or parade that thing around like it's a bright yellow jumpsuit. Oh. Kanji dances, too, I guess. I think his default costume is background character in House of Pain's "Jump Around" video.more
