Atlus has continued its all-too-insufficient morphine drip of information on Catherine with a few new gameplay details. The most recent update to the game’s official site is the first update to include details on anything remotely interactive.
The game’s protagonist, Vincent, can visit Stray Sheep, a neighborhood bar, where he’ll send and receive texts and e-mails from his friends and acquaintances. The player can choose how Vincent replies to these mails.
More recently, Famitsu posted some new information about the Vincent’s blood alcohol level. The meter on the left side of the screenshot below indicates his drunkenness. Getting drunk at Stray Sheep will speed up his dreams later that night, which is apparently a good thing (based on the look of that eye-boob monster, we'd say so).
Atlus has not yet announced North American or European release dates, but we hope that success in Japan will lead to a Western release, because Catherine looks to be brimming with a lovely brand of crazy. Eye-boob monster crazy.
