The more we hear, the more we hope Catherine receives a North American release date at some point.
Famitsu has been keeping everyone up to date on Atlus' interesting project; it's the first high-definition game from the publisher and also ranks as the third most-wanted game according to Famitsu readers. This week, we learn about the meaning behind the liquor bottle icon we've seen in screenshots: essentially, it tells the player how drunk Vincent is and there are three levels of drunkenness. …well, of course. In order to have a drink, you'll have to visit the Stray Sheep; it's the bar where Vincent and his buddies hang out, and you can buy beer, cocktails, whiskey or nihonshu. The drunker Vincent is, the hotter he is, and his dreams will speed up…which is apparently a good thing.
Famitsu also provided a sneak peek at what happens to Vincent after his fateful one-night stand with the tempting Catherine. The following morning, Vincent's long-time girlfriend – Katherine – knocks at the door when Catherine is still there, which sounds like a definite problem. Another problem is that Vincent gets a call at one point from a dude called "Steve," and he says Catherine is "his girl." Forget the dreams, Vincent; sounds like you have all sorts of real-world issues.
