Catherine (キャサリン, Kyasarin) is an upcoming action-adventure game developed and published by Atlus for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game will be Atlus’ first game for seventh-generation consoles in high definition. It has been said that the game will have some “exciting adult scenes” by Shigenori Soejima—the game’s character designer—during an interview. Shoji Meguro—the game’s sound composer—described the music as being “classic”, “adult abs” and “erotic fantasy.” The cinematic portion of the game is handled by Studio 4°C.
In the neighbourhood Vincent lives in, there have recently been a number of bizarre incidents in which people die in their sleep, with a look of anguish upon their faces. Strangely enough, all of the victims are young men. The story quickly spreads throughout the media, attracting widespread attention and theories as to the cause of death. A strange rumor begins to spread that if a person dreams of falling, if they don’t wake up they will soon become unable to wake at all, and die.
Vincent is at a bar contemplating marriage to Katherine, his lover of five years, who is pressuring him to get married, when he meets a beautiful and mysterious woman named Catherine. Although there are many vacant seats she sits next to Vincent and, well-proportioned and pretty, she is exactly his type. The two end up spending the night together at Vincent’s house.
After meeting the woman, Vincent begins to have nightmares every single night, which he believes may be related to the rumours. As dreams and reality begin to blend together, Vincent must not only fight to survive, but he must choose between the two women.
Now on to my review for this upcoming game from Atlus.
Catherine, being the first HD game created by ATLUS isn’t just going to be a stepping stone or a device to test the capabilities of the Next Gen Consoles. It will be a full-fledged story filled with psychological brain twisters, frightening nightmares and the sensitive issue of sex and cheating with your partners.
Developed by the same team that made the “Mind Braking” Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, Catherine is Produced and Directed by Katsura Hoshino, Characters designed by Shigenori Soejima and Music composed by Shouji Meguro. It will be one of the most anticipated games to be ever made. Plan to be released in February 17, 2011. Catherine will be released in both the PS3 and the XBOX 360.
