Catherine, Team Persona’s high-definition action-adventure puzzle title, is coming to North America this Summer, Atlus has announced.
“Catherine is an unprecedented exploration of the pleasures and horrors of love,” commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus. “As Vincent, a man recently succumbed to the irresistible beauty of the game’s titular diversion, players find themselves swept into a treacherous love triangle. Catherine‘s core themes–those of free will, of the delicate nature of relationships and the choices we make within them, marry perfectly with the intense, terror-filled gameplay that serves to accurately reflect Vincent’s growing sense of anxiety. It is an experience wholly unlike any to come before it, and is certain to leave gamers talking and thinking about Vincent’s tribulations long after the credits have rolled.”
Catherine released in Japan earlier this month, on February 17. It was Famitsu’s most wanted game for several weeks running and topped Japanese sales charts after launch.
Atlus hasn’t released any localized screenshots yet, but the North American box art (identical to the Japanese box art) can be seen at the gallery.
