European Launch of Catherine to Come February of 2012
Action-adventure/puzzle mix to come to Europe early next year.
Deep Silver announced today that their action-adventure/puzzle game Catherine will come to European shores next year on February 10, 2012. Being close to Valentine's Day is a bit of bonus for those looking to cuddle up with either the seductress and eponymous Catherine or the protagonist Vincent's long-time girlfriend Katherine...it's up to the player to choose.
Both the standard version and the "Stray Sheep Edition" (which contains the Rave T-Shirt that Vincent wears in the game, two Stray Sheep bar-themed coasters, a Catherine poster that is exclusively available, all in a Stray Sheep Bar pizza delivery box) will be available in Europe on the release date. The "Stray Sheep Edition" of Catherine will retail for £54.99 and the standard edition for £44.99.
Catherine will be available for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, both with localized text in French, Italian, German and Spanish.
Some features of Catherine include:
- The Horrors of Love - Vincent's waking fears, doubts, pressures, and growing guilt about commitment and fidelity now gleefully follow him into his dreams, manifesting as horribly disfigured monsters and a ticking clock.
- Between a Rock and a Soft Place - The player must navigate Vincent through heavy moral decisions. As in real life, hardly anything is black and white. What is the value of honesty? What is the right thing to do? Either way, someone's going to get hurt. Worse yet, someone could die.
- The Nightmare of Your Dreams - Under the watch of producer Katsura Hashino, acclaimed director of Persona 3 and Persona 4, famed character artist Shigenori Soejima and master composer Shoji Meguro create sights and sounds unlike anything else. As unforgettable and original as the game's narrative, Catherine's visual direction and musical score define and perfectly complement Vincent's terrifying ascent into the dizzying perils of love.
- Escape With or From a Friend - Local competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes, in addition to leaderboards, ensure that the many thrills and horrors of racing through twisted stages can be enjoyed by more than one player and add hours of extra gameplay to the overall experience.
