The wait is finally over, sort of. Today, Atlus USA has announced that Catherine, a puzzle-platformer, will be coming to North America in the Summer of 2011. Below you will find the actual press release.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA — MARCH 1, 2011 — Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today revealed a Summer 2011 North American release for Catherine, a game in which “falling for a girl” is meant literally, for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
“Catherine is an unprecedented exploration of the pleasures and horrors of love,” commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus. “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.”
Catherine is currently scheduled to release in Summer 2011 for PlayStation 3 system and Xbox 360 system. The game’s official website, http://www.catherinethegame.com, will launch soon, offering more details and media. Fans who want to get their hands on more of Catherine’s goods should keep an eye out for exciting extras. More to come!
