Atlus just didn't want to spill the beans beforehand. But the official word is here now, and North American gamers can rejoice.
Today, Atlus U.S.A., Inc. announced that Catherine , the erotic, horrific cinematic adventure, would be coming to North America this summer. The game in which "falling for a girl" is meant literally, players will have to brave nightmares and deal with a complicated love triangle.
We've been following this particular project since we first heard about the very original concept. Said Aram Jabbari, Atlus Manager of PR and Sales:
"Catherine is an unprecedented exploration of the pleasures and horrors of love. As Vincent, a man recently succumbed to the irresistible beauty of the game's titular diversion, players find themselves swept into a treacherous love triangle. Catherine's core themes–those of free will, of the delicate nature of relationships and the choices we make within them, marry perfectly with the intense, terror-filled gameplay that serves to accurately reflect Vincent's growing sense of anxiety. It is an experience wholly unlike any to come before it, and is certain to leave gamers talking and thinking about Vincent's tribulations long after the credits have rolled."
The game will be available on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and the official website will soon contain more info and details. As you can see, they're also prepping separate box art for the PS3 and 360 versions.
We've heard a lot about this one, especially the fact that it supposedly boasts insane difficulty. But Atlus is already preparing a patch to deal with that; it'll be ready long before Catherine arrives stateside. So prepare yourselves for a unique and terrifying experience!
