Love it or hate it, the artistry and imagination behind Atlus' Catherine is impressive.
And if you're a fan of that creative style, you'll probably want to try the game, which releases on July 26. After that, maybe you'll want to pick up the 160-page art book, which will be available on August 10…in Japan. As noted by Andriasang , ASCII will produce the Venus Mode: Catherine Visual & Scenario Collection art book. It's a full-size A4 book with 160 color pages; the content is split up into five chapters: Visual, Theater, Cast, Nightmare and Concept. This is your chance to see some early art sketches along with never-before-seen images and drawings, straight from the inspired pencil of the Atlus artists. If you can read Japanese, feel free to visit the official site .
You don't need to know Japanese to see the pretty pictures, though. And here's hoping the game is captivating on a number of different levels.
