Atlus explains Catherine's story

Atlus has played coy with upcoming action-adventure game, Catherine, up until now, relying on a hip art and less-than-subtle sexual appeals to make their case for the game. The company has finally fully explained what the game is about on its official site.

Above: The image that headlines Catherine's official blog

Here goes: Vincent's neighborhood is being haunted by a series of bizarre deaths. Young men are being found dead in their beds, their faces contorted in a frighting manner. An urban legend springs up which claims that those who fall in dreams die.

Paying these incidents little heed, Vincent meets his girlfriend of five years, Katherine at a local bar. He's pretty pleased with himself, and if it weren't for his girlfriend’s hints at marriage, life would be perfect. While at the bar, Vincent is is seduced by a beautiful young girl named Catherine (as opposed to his girlfriend Katherine).

After he cheats on his girlfriend with Catherine, Vincent is haunted by nightmares that seem suspiciously like those from the urban legend.

That's all Atlus has explained so far... still no word on the sheep-men that filled earlier trailers.

    Another interesting game that will never make it to US shores And btw, your source says, from "Official Capcom Site"

    I'm calling it, Catherines a succubus.

    @ kit07 Yeh that was the first thing I thought when I saw this. Looks interesting.
  • QWERTYCommander - November 4, 2010 7:35 a.m.

    Something tells me Catherine is the cause for the deaths. Anyway, I saw the trailers, and this game looks pretty intriguing. But the wideness of Vincent's open mouth in one of the trailers is weird.

    I get the feeling it will turn out that the hot girl will end up being a succubus, and she'll be the one behind the deaths, and you'll have to defeat her in your dream causing her to disappear in typical moonspeak fashion. I could be completely wrong though. Trying to interpret Japanese games is sorta difficult...

    i thought they said that a while ago. anyway i'd rather have no clue what the story is about when i get into the game. it tends to be more fun for me that way.

    Well I like that it has some focus on sheep, one of my odd favorite animals. And hopefully by the time it comes out I can actually legally by the thing by myself. Still I wish they actually showed what the gameplays like.

    Wow this seems absoutely fantastically ....... lame
  • Mamudo - November 3, 2010 9:06 p.m.

    I'm looking forward to this. It's kind of funny that this game is like a spin off of a spin off.
  • kit07 - November 3, 2010 9:03 p.m.

    he kinda looks like Spike

    So it's bayonetta's prequel? Just josin ya, but if Arnold Swartsanigger wins, this game will lose 90% of the people buying it. reCAPTCHA: ooling obtained. What in the name of holy mother of hell!?
  • kuroda - November 3, 2010 8:22 p.m.

    @ hester2, then how can you explain that I heard you say it at least 7 times? Last time being yesterday at tea time? OT: I'm interested!
  • hester2 - November 3, 2010 7:52 p.m.

    Sounds like it could be similar to Persona. Juggle the two relationships during the day, play in dungeon-like dreams at night? If that's the case, I'm really interested. I always said there's not enough Nightmare on Elm Street RPGs out there (I've actually never said that).
  • ichigoame - November 3, 2010 7:42 p.m.

    vincent sort of reminds me of tatsumi out of speed gapher hmm yeah i'm keeping an eye on this one
  • AnonymouZ - November 3, 2010 7:41 p.m.

    shooting game* lul at falling asleep and since this is a double post, i might as well say: where is Katherine... was she on the trailer?
  • AnonymouZ - November 3, 2010 7:40 p.m.

    well, i still don't know how that story can be made in a game. is it gonna be a shoot or what the fuck?
  • Wolverine08 - November 3, 2010 7:38 p.m.

    I may have just found a new desktop wallpaper...NOW I'm interested
  • coda_ - November 3, 2010 7:34 p.m.

    This game looks strangely good. And also first.
