When I posted about the Persona 3 Social mobile game yesterday, many of you reacted along the lines of "blah blah blah where's my Persona 5 on current-generation consoles?" Well, this new game, Catherine, isn't Persona 5, but short of an official announcement for that game it's the closest you're going to get.

Don't be disappointed though, because from the looks of things, Catherine is easily as intriguing as any Persona sequel, and involves key Persona series staffers like P3/P3P director/producer Katsura Hashino and series character designer Shigenori Soejima. The game stars Vincent, a 30-something "herbivore man" who runs into the titular Catherine, a coquettish 22-year-old. Shortly after, he starts having vicious nightmares wherein he must climb an endless staircase just to wake up. Incidentally, Vincent also appeared as a mysterious NPC in Persona 3 Portable, so there might be a more direct connection at play.

Currently billed as a "horror action-adventure", the team promises that Catherine will be more adult-themed than past games they've made. Shoji Meguro, who's composing for the title, noted that keywords for the game's music include "classic", "adult-oriented", and "erotic". Looking at leaked Famitsu scans (check them out below), I can certainly confirm the latter two. There's an official site here, but as of this writing it's blank. Expect the game around "Winter 2010" for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

What do you think? Are you in DO WANT mode, or are you still just disappointed that it's not Persona 5?
