Catherine: Atlus finally arrive at the next-gen party

So it sure took Atlus long enough, but they're ready to step up to the HD plate, and they're coming out swinging.

Catherine is a survival-horror-esque Action RPG from the creative minds behind Persona 3 and 4; Shoji Meguro, Shigenori Soejima, Katsura Hoshino, etc.

Vincent is a 32 year old salaryman with no ambition.

Lately he's been having nightmarish dreams of sheep, falling, and falling sheep.

If he can't reach the top of a tower by the time he awakens, his fate is the same as theirs.

Reality isn't much better, as he keeps encountering a strange woman named Catherine.

Slated for a Winter 2010 release, here's a trailer.

Looks like a very improved version of the Persona 4 engine. A taste of things to come for Persona? We can only hope.


  1. Wow, this really reminds me of Baroque. I know, different companies. But still, I will defintely get this. Can we expect to see SMT games on next gen consoles after this? I can only hope...

  2. Oh, finally I have an excuse to hand over two months worth of my salary to buy a xbox or a ps3 in my lame-ass 3rd world country.

    Damn you, atlus :)
