Catherine gets date, special edition, pre-order bonuses

Catherine won’t only arrive in that silly old standard packaging. Atlus has announced a limited run deluxe edition of Catherine — the “Love Is Over” edition.

Packaged inside a Stray Sheep pizza box, which is a bar and central hub of the Catherine game world, the deluxe edition includes:

  • A pair of polka dot boxers — the same worn by Vincent in his nightmares
  • An “Empty Hearts” t-shirt — the same worn by Catherine in game
  • A pillow case decorated with the alluring image of Catherine

It will retail for $79.99, or $20 more than the standard edition at $59.99.

Also announced, all pre-orders for Catherine, standard or deluxe, will include a free Catherine sound disc and art book. The full-color art book is 36 pages, measures 5.25″ x 6.76″ and is filled with designs by Shigenori Soejima. The sound disc features 11 tracks from composer Shoji Meguro.

Check out images of the deluxe edition, sound disc, and art book at the gallery. Catherine launches July 26, 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
