Catherine Remastered for PS4 and Vita With A Brand-New "Catherine"

Atlus' odd Catherine gets a remaster for this generation.

Atlus surprised folks with the announcement of Catherine: Full Body, a re-release of the original PlayStation 3 title for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The original Catherine followed the story of Vincent, a thirtysomething man who cheats on his fiance Katherine with a woman named Katherine. These actions cause Vincent to suffer through twisted nightmares, which play out in the form of odd puzzle action stages.

A shot with the new "Catherine".

Catherine: Full Body offers a third "Catherine" named Rin, voiced by Aya Hirano. According to Weekly Famitsu (translated via Gematsu), Rin is a gentle character whose presence will introduce new branches into Vincent's relationships with Catherine and Katherine. Overall, new episodes, new cutscenes, new endings, and a few additional mechanics in the puzzle stages are being added to the game.

Catherine fans asked for a competitive mode for the game's puzzle stages, so Atlus is adding a new online battle mode. Catherine: Full Body will also be cross-save active on PlayStation 4 and Vita.

Atlus is collaborating with Studio Zero, the team behind Project Re: Fantasy, on Catherine: Full Body. Development is around half done, so the game doesn't have a firm release window or price.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
