Persona: Catherine

Quote:
The Persona role-playing-game franchise is getting a hi-def entry called "Catherine". It's an action-adventure type game that is aimed at adults.

The game follows Vincent as he wakes up every night from his dreams. Vincent, website Siliconera points out, appeared in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable!.

Catherine is being developed for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Game Jouhou has posted a bunch of additional details on Catherine, Atlus's new PS3 and Xbox 360 action adventure game.

As detailed below, Catherine is the first HD game from Atlus. It's being made with key members of the Persona staff. Included in the staff list are Katsura Hashino as producer and director, Shigenori Soejima as character designer, and Shouji Meguro as sound composer.

While the game's name is Catherine, the main character is actually a 32-year-old salaryman named Vincent (voiced by Koichi Yamadera). Catherine (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro) is a stylish 22-year-old girl who apparently has the charms of a young girl.

The game begins when Vincent, a vegetarian who has no ambition in work or love (I'm not sure if he's literally a "vegetarian," or if the term "vegetarian" is some sort of metaphor for his personality) runs into the mysterious Catherine one day. At night, he has nightmares.

The nightmares serve as an action component for the game. Set in a world with an unending stairway, Vincent has to make it to the top of the stairs, or he will not be able to awaken.

Based off Game Jouhou's summary, it's a bit unclear how the game will progress. However, it does seem that even during the nightmare action parts, you'll end up working through the story and encountering events.

During a staff interview, Hashino said that as their first HD game, rather than trying out a true RPG, the team was excited about trying out something new. It looks like Catherine will be just that, as Hashino said it will be more adult oriented than past titles from the team. It's not all style, though. Hashino promised a deep play experience with plenty of gameplay for players to sink their teeth into.

Soejima said that there are some shockingly adult scenes in the game. When you play these scenes, they'll be even more stimulating, although in a difference sense.

Meguro confirmed the adult leanings of the title, saying that the keywords for the game's music are "classic," "adult oriented" and "erotic." He also promised 5.1ch sound.

Meguro also made a comment that has Persona fans excited. He said that due to Catherine, he believes for the time being the staff won't be asked about their next title. However, at some point next year, perhaps he'll be able to respond "Regarding the RPG, Hashino and I are..."

I can see SCEA rejecting this title already if a US release ever comes about. XB360 exculsive in the US I predict.

It has a 30-something man , a sheep , dripping blood , and a hot sexy woman ... This game can't be gone wrong, right ?

Now if only we can see the real gameplay screen or video, that would be cool ... Sex elements (only) can't save a video game for being a stupid video game.

Catherine's official website links to Amazon pre-order listings, which suggest the game is coming July 26, 2011, though that release date has not been confirmed.

Catherine is coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

this actually sounds interesting. if it doesn't come out over here, I might import it. For the adult parts, the most I'm expecting is showing off boobs, I doubt they will do anything worse than what God of war already has done with their sex stuff.
