Originally revealed during ATLUS’ stage show at Tokyo Game Show 2018, the studio best known internationally for their massively-popular Persona series has begun streaming the full opening movie for Catherine: Full Body via their YouTube channel today. Perfectly capturing the essence of everything we could want from a 2018 remake and enhancement to the original Catherine story, the opening video sees the return of Japanese hip-hop artist L-VOKAL to perform the game’s remade theme, “YO”.
ATLUS has been pulling no punches these last few months in drawing me closer and closer to double-dipping on Catherine: Full Body and grabbing both the Japanese release and English release because I simply don’t want to wait. There’s an unparalleled excitement brought forward by the original title that would in most cases have been extremely difficult to live up to. With everything we’ve seen so far from ATLUS, however, it seems that my excitement is quite justified and that this might just be a worthy addition to the Catherine story.
Set to release in Japan on February 14, 2019, there’s currently no word as to when we can expect to see Catherine: Full Body in the West. That doesn’t mean you can’t be excited though, because it really is looking like this will be a Catherine title worthy of the name. Those interested in checking out further information on the upcoming title can check out the upcoming game’s official website.
