Earlier today ATLUS began streaming an all-new trailer for their upcoming Catherine: Full Body title on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, and if I’m honest, I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for a remake. It’s not just that we’re looking at revisiting what was honestly one of the greatest puzzle experiences of its time, but also it really does look like ATLUS has put in their all for this one. Featured throughout the latest trailer was a slew of gorgeously animated moments, as well as a whole bunch of new information including the much-requested addition of online multiplayer.
Opening to a series of in-person interviews on the streets of Harajuku, the interviewer opens with “What do you think about soul mates?” and ”What would you do if you met your soul mate?” to a scattered audience. It’s a mixed palette of responses, most of which can be summed up to “Sounds like something out of an anime” to “I’d marry them on the spot”. Following this, however, we’re thrown right into the action with an overly-dramatic opening scene the screams Catherine.
First and foremost, possibly one of the most important pieces of information learned today is that the new girl, Rin, is now being referred to as Qatherine. Yes, you read that correctly, they’re going with a Q. Following that is the aforementioned addition of online multiplayer, a long-requested feature since the game originally released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011. On top of all this, ATLUS has also announced that players will have up to 10 different voices for Catherine to choose from, most of which will be released via DLC after the game releases.
If all this wasn’t enough, ATLUS additionally detailed that they’ll be releasing DLC to allow players to enjoy various modes within the game as Persona 5 protagonist Joker. During the times in which you’re playing the game as Joker, you’ll be joined by a number of other Phantom Thieves of Heart members.
Set to release exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on February 14, 2019, the upcoming Catherine: Full Body has me climbing for even more information. Until then, however, you can check out further details about the game on its slightly NSFW official website.
