Atlus’ puzzle-horror adventure Catherine has had the most diverse reactions of a videogame in recent memory. Fortunately, now Australians can decide for themselves as the game has just been announced to be released later this year.
This news is somewhat of a surprise considering the trouble you would expect Catherine to have when faced with Australia’s strict classifications for videogames. There’s no exact release date in place yet, but the distributors, QV Software, are shooting for October.
It’s already available for pre-order so in the interests of getting hold of one of 2011’s most unique games, all Australians should probably make it their business to seek it out. Or not, as it seems the nightmarish tale of Vincent Brooks and his guilt has a real love/hate thing going on with most people.
