Catherine 'Love is Over' Deluxe Edition and pre-order bonuses revealed

Atlus, the self-proclaimed "sexiest publisher around," has released details on the pre-order bonuses and "Love is Over" Deluxe Edition of the North American release of Catherine, a bizarre, sexy RPG/puzzle platformer which fascinated us even before an international release was announced.

The "Love is Over" package will be presented in a Stray Sheep (a bar in which much of the game's story takes place) pizza box, and will include "a pair of polka dot boxers like the ones worn by Vincent during his manic nightmares, Vincent's 'Empty Hearts' T-shirt worn by Catherine in the game, and a pillow case decorated with an alluring image of Catherine, a nod to the pillow tucked under Vincent's arm as he frantically races to escape the terrors that pursue him."

To avoid "bitter, bitter disappointment," Atlus recommends that fans pre-order the Deluxe Edition, as it will be produced in limited quantities. To encourage early adoption, Atlus also announced today that as a reward for pre-ordering either the standard or Deluxe Edition, players will receive the Catherine Sound Disc & Art Book. The book contains 36 pages of full-color artwork by character designer Shigenori Soejima, and the CD contains 11 tracks by composer Shoji Meguro.

Catherine is scheduled to release on Xbox 360 and PS3 on July 26, and the standard edition will retail for the standard $59.99, while the Deluxe Edition will go for $79.99. If you aren't sure whether or not the game is for you, check out our video of the Japanese demo and other previous coverage, and sleep on it. If you decide to go Deluxe, you could soon be sleeping on this:

    Man that art book looks good and I am curious on the sound track. Though I don't know exactly if the game will really be all too appealing to me. It looks a bit repetitive.

    I tried to preorder the deluxe PS3 edition at my EB, but they only had a 360 version registered?

    Goddamnit, Atlus. You're going to make me look like such a creep in front of my family...
  • Amnesiac - May 3, 2011 12:24 a.m.

    It's an awesomely unique box, but all I really want is the art book and soundtrack, which I'll get for pre-ordering anyway.
  • Robusken - May 2, 2011 10:52 p.m.

    I think I'm hyped enough for this game to go all out and get the deluxe edition. Which will be a first for me I think...
  • mattersnotnow - May 2, 2011 10:43 p.m.

    Looks good Damn you Atlus! Stop parting me of my money!
  • NappyAfro - May 2, 2011 10:42 p.m.

    Is it wrong that I only want the deluxe version just for the extra swag and sell the game after I get it?
  • LeoZeo - May 2, 2011 10:19 p.m.

    No awesome edition for Europe!? D: Wait, is Europe even getting the game??
  • SergeWaffels - May 2, 2011 9:38 p.m.

    Stupid Amazon won't send it too Europe. Anyone know a site that will send it. Against Atlus wishes?
  • Robx - May 2, 2011 9 p.m.

    So...for 20 bucks you get a T-shirt,boxers and a pillow cover? ...hahahaha...
  • jackthemenace - May 2, 2011 8:57 p.m.

    GODDAMMIT. Stupid Atlus not giving it a UK release... I actually want this game MORE, PURELY because I might have to order it in from overseas.
  • codystovall - May 2, 2011 7:53 p.m.

    Thats a lotta shit, makes me worried that this is a bribe to get a game thats nosagood.
  • Kage_No_Shi - May 2, 2011 7:44 p.m. doesn't list the PS3 version. I don't see why they won't release a PS3 version of the deluxe edition.
  • SpikroddNG - May 2, 2011 7:37 p.m.

    brb going to GameStop to change my pre-order to deluxe edition
  • BALLSTOTHEWALLET - May 2, 2011 7:30 p.m.

    As a European resident, I hope this game gets the Demon's Souls treatment over here!, lucky Yanks!.
  • Phanttas - May 2, 2011 7:28 p.m.

    Shame that there's no mention of a UK release, and I doubt I'd get it at release price anyway, but I would hope for the Western releases they use subtitles, especially since I expect the audience they're aiming at wouldn't want it dubbed badly either. I'm not saying that a dub would definitely be done bad, just very probably.
  • ricochetguro - May 2, 2011 7:18 p.m.

    Ehh Idk. I want to get it to support the game but I have no use for that pillow case nor do I really want anyone to see it. I'm also worried that the t-shirt and boxers will be of poor quality. And will the Pizza Box be cheap cardboard? I'll probably still end up getting the collectors anyway. Damn you Atlus. I wish they'd stop with this kind of marketing though. From what I understand the game is actually pretty mature and non graphic in its storyline but this gives the wrong impression. I guess the game needs publicity of any kind though. Late rage:Your import "review" was crap. Writing a coulpe paragraphs with only a few minues and then slapping a 5 on it......*rant continues*
