New Catherine: Full Body Trailer is Chock Full of Blood and New Story Content

Gets the blood going.

Atlus released a new Japanese trailer for Catherine: Full Body this week, and all that relationship stuff takes a backseat to some good old-fashioned blood and violence. Atlus also revealed some new modes coming to Catherine: Full Body including a puzzle-free story mode.

Catherine: Full Body is an enhanced version of the 2011 romance-themed puzzle game. Not to be confused with the recent Catherine PC release, Catherine: Full Body adds new story scenarios, gameplay modes, and even a third Catherine (named Rin). You can see a bunch of that new footage in the new trailer below.

Atlus promoted Catherine as a mature game focused on real relationships. The player takes on the role of Vincent, a wayward commitment-phobe who finds himself torn between his girlfriend Katherine, and a seductive young woman he meets at a bar named Catherine. In between the relationship drama Vincent has terrible nightmares where he's forced to climb tall puzzle towers while getting chased by some monsters. There's some sheep involved and if he dies in his dreams, he dies in real life.

A translated feature on Catherine: Full Body in Famitsu (thanks, Gematsu) also detailed some new modes coming alongside the new story content. There will be a puzzle free "Safety" mode for players who want to skip the puzzles and just experience the story. There will also be two new competition modes, "Babel" and "Colosseum," that will take advantage of the competitive Catherine scene. The two modes include rankings and the ability to play as other characters like the Catherines, or Vincent's friends at the bar.

Catherine: Full Body is slated to come out on PS4 later this year, though no firm release date has been announced. Check out our deep dive into Catherine to celebrate the recent PC launch.
