Atlus has enjoyed playing with our minds and emotions concerning Catherine .

First, they say it isn't coming to North America; then they announce it is. Today, they send out a press release entitled, "Atlus Has No Plans At This Time To Release Catherine Screenshots, Teaser Trailer." The comment from Crystal Murray, Atlus PR Specialist was-

"You can't believe every little rumor you hear out there on the internets. The internet's a big series of tubes, and sometimes when everyone's trying to download their emails at the same time, some of the stuff goes into the wrong tube."

And then- "The publisher immediately followed this statement by releasing said assets." They're just going crazy over there. Anyway, here's the new American teaser.

And if you visit the game's official website , you'll find more new media and even samples from what seems to be a fantastic soundtrack. For our part, we're just happy the game is coming, and Atlus' press releases always seem to stick out. They're good at that.

I think they are enjoying it more than we are. People are talking about it though so they are getting what they want I suppose. How many are really interested in this game? My interest level is below moderate.

I preordered before Gamestop even opened, but I work there, so.. Does that show my interest?

Own the Japanese version and already placed my order for the US version on Amazon. I'm double interested.

I don't think everyone interested will comment to your comment, but I'd still like to throw my hat into the interested party.

I'm definitely picking it up. I have just loved all the videos and the game just looks like it'll be great.

Yep, interested here too. I'm going to seriously look in to this game. I've been thinking of it as a kind of manga Heavy Rain…something like that anyway.

One of my most anticipated titles of the year (and it's a damn good year).

I'm very interested.

However, it may have to wait for a dry gaming month for a purchase, and I'm hoping it doesn't go for the full $109.95 AU price tag like most new release games here in Oz.

… that's if it makes it to Australia at all. Really does suck being a hardcore gamer here.

Very much interested. Like DanceMacine said though, I doubt I'll pick it up full price. It'll be a niche title, and drop quickly, so three months and it'll probably be under 50. The $110 price tag for games is ridiculous, but I usually head to JB Hi-FI and new titles are $89. Well, except GT5… It's still $99. So was WKC last time I checked :/. But I don't doubt that it'll get through the censors.
Peace.

You know, they're right, the internets are a series of tubes, it's not something you just dump on, it's not a big truck!

If gameplay was anything other than what they have I'd be more interested. Right now I'm walking the line. Playing the demo would probably tip me over. One way or the other.

I think the biggest reason I'm interested in this game, is simply because there is nothing else like it and I love to try new things.

I like the graphical look, I like the edginess, the darkness, it just looks like something I have to try.

Wouldn't it be ironic if Atlus has been doing these Catherine announcements as 1 big ole giant spoof of SE since they lost their way back to the future of Squaresoft old.

Anyways, I'm not really into that anime, shaded cell style, or whatever it's called.
But in the realm of all thing's considered, I'm certainly interested for the bizarro storyline.

The music for the US trailer is great, and my 1st thoughts on it was of a haunted carousel or haunted fun-house, which I think would actually blend in perfectly with his haunted nightmares.

Completely agree with you BikerSaint.

I'm not the biggest fan of Japanese anime or Japanese cultural games, hence why (call me crazy) I didn't get into the Yakuza games. Too many other great games from Western developers got my attention.

But even so, while I'm not a big fan of anime, the story, puzzles, gameplay and relationships explored within Catherine really appeal to me. It's kinda why I loved Heavy Rain so much.

Any games that allow the player to explore relationships with other characters are usually favourites of mine. Heavy Rain and Mass Effect 2 are prime examples. If the developers create a highly advanced relationship exploration system across multiple paths and multiple characters, it's immediately got me interestes, hence why I might give Catherine a go.

Also, am looking forward to David Cage's next project, he hinted it will be about exploring the relationship between a straight-forward business man and a carefree woman who was once protected from the outside world. Love these kinds of games!!

I'm going to pass on this. From the looks of things it's nothing but nonsensically punishing gameplay wrapped up with pervy anime videos. A step back for Atlus if ever there was one.

I feel where you're coming from man, but I'm hoping it's much more! It's a gamble I'm willing to make!

Just wondering, are the relationship elements explored in the game pretty deep like something from Heavy Rain or Mass Effect 2?

Or is the relationship between Katherine and Catherine just a simple overlay over a puzzle and platformer?

Slick trailer… reminds me a bit of that Love trailer for Heavy Rain, with the words and images. I liked the music.

Oh, and am I the only one that finds Katherine more alluring than Catherine? I just get the feeling that the first would be more my type.
Peace.
