I really like the art style it's got going on. 
 
Except the sheep....what...the...hell...

I like how there just some random ass pictures of goats as well. 

#5 Posted by Cabbage (26 posts) -

Looks like a helluva twisted game. Don't get too hyped though. I say the odds are nil we will be seeing this in NA

Yeah, Vincent seems to be having some pretty awesome nightmares for what they are! 
 
By the way, this is the official website of Catherine (that's only going to open officially on the 23rd):

Here are some details from Famitsu: 

While the game's name is Catherine, the main character is actually a 32-year-old salaryman named Vincent (voiced by Koichi Yamadera). Catherine (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro) is a stylish 22-year-old girl who apparently has the charms of a young girl.

The game begins when Vincent, a vegetarian who has no ambition in work or love (I'm not sure if he's literally a "vegetarian," or if the term "vegetarian" is some sort of metaphor for his personality) runs into the mysterious Catherine one day. At night, he has nightmares.

The nightmares serve as an action component for the game. Set in a world with an unending stairway, Vincent has to make it to the top of the stairs, or he will not be able to awaken. (Sounds a bit Persona 3-ish)

Based off Game Jouhou's summary, it's a bit unclear how the game will progress. However, it does seem that even during the nightmare action parts, you'll end up working through the story and encountering events.

During a staff interview, Hashino said that as their first HD game, rather than trying out a true RPG, the team was excited about trying out something new. It looks like Catherine will be just that, as Hashino said it will be more adult oriented than past titles from the team. It's not all style, though. Hashino promised a deep play experience with plenty of gameplay for players to sink their teeth into.

Soejima said that there are some shockingly adult scenes in the game. When you play these scenes, they'll be even more stimulating, although in a difference sense. (lol)

Meguro confirmed the adult leanings of the title, saying that the keywords for the game's music are "classic," "adult oriented" and "erotic." He also promised 5.1ch sound.

Meguro also made a comment that has Persona fans excited. He said that due to Catherine, he believes for the time being the staff won't be asked about their next title. However, at some point next year, perhaps he'll be able to respond "Regarding the RPG, Hashino and I are..."

please someone translate the dialogue of the sheep

#14 Posted by Driadon (2998 posts) -

Wow. That style + HD shaders/textures made my jaw drop. I'm kinda getting excited over this now.

#15 Posted by Scrumdidlyumptious (1641 posts) -

This looks cool. Hopefully it's localized, though it probably won't be.

I believe it's saying something to the effect of "Those who do not want to die have to climb the stairs." 
 
@Icemael: Here's a more in-depth and recent preview written

It will.  There's only one recent Atlus developed game in memory that didn't get localized and that wasn't... a very notable release.  Also, it's coming out on 360.

The boobshot made me cringe.
 
The sheep made me........wait what did the sheep make me feel?
 
I- i don't fully comprehend it but I think I like it.
 
edit: love the art shown so far

Oh right I forgot how awesome Atlus were! Woohoo!
#19 Edited by mutha3 (4985 posts) -
@Scrumdidlyumptious: @Cabbage:
The existance of a 360 version basically confirms a western release.
 
Not to mention, the Persona team is working on this, no way in hell this won't get localized
#20 Posted by SpiralStairs (1020 posts) -
@Cabbage:  Why wouldn't it be? It's the first Atlus game developed game for an HD platform. That's a pretty big deal.
#21 Posted by Cabbage (26 posts) -
@SpiralStairs: @mutha3: @FluxWaveZ:  I hope all of you are right! As a non-Persona gamer, I really want to see what this team can do. It just seems like a hell of a project to localize that's all. New IP, Adult-looking content... I dunno, it just seems like there are factors working against it.

Same could be said about Deadly Premonition and look how that turned out.
#23 Posted by Inuzagi (170 posts) -
I'm not going to lie...this looks pretty damn awesome. Feel as though as I'll be importing this title day one...more so if news of a CE pop up.
#24 Posted by thehexeditor (1404 posts) -

Yes. YES.
 I rub my hands in anticipation over this graphics engine + persona 5.. er
this game looks interesting too

#25 Posted by Hailinel (24830 posts) -

Looks awesome.  I can't wait to see more on this game!

#26 Posted by Kowalo (91 posts) -

Teddie is on the bar in the second screenshot.

#27 Posted by thehexeditor (1404 posts) -

Also:
 

 Hee-"Ho".

We have been summoning dick monsters and  shooting  our teenage selves in the head for over ten years now in the SMT franchise.
 
And Atlus has localized far more obscure titels then this, not to mention:
 
- their biggest team is working on this
- Atlus has always localized all of their inhouse games(save for one veeeery obscure example)
-There is a 360 version
 
No worries, we'll see this in the US ;-)

@Kowal: Wow you're right
#31 Edited by Cabbage (26 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ: My GOTY thus far! However, that game was almost made FOR Americans. It natively had English v/o, violence over sex... 
 
Alright I give up! Clearly SMT fans know whats up. I'll be watching this one closely. Let the hype machine do it's magic :P
#32 Edited by mutha3 (4985 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ: Awesome. I hope we'll get more little reference like that.
 
That reminds me:this game could potentially take place in tatsumi port island if  P3P is anything to go by. I mean this game doesn't take place several years after P3....but maybe that was just a cameo and these game don't take place in the same universe.

That right there might be the weirdest screenshot I've ever seen.
#34 Posted by SpiralStairs (1020 posts) -
@Cabbage:  Bringing freaky-ass japanese games over to NA is Atlus's thing, and seeing how they've had a recent surge in popularity, it's probably even more likely now.

WOOHOO
 
Lets celebrate by appreciating one of SMT's many dick monsters
 
 ohhh mara i love you so
#36 Posted by SpiralStairs (1020 posts) -
@mutha3: What's the one example?
#37 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19342 posts) -

Oh, and something else to point out: Vincent has a certain resemblance to Spike Spiegel (not a lot, but still) and Vincent's Japanese voice actor is Koichi Yamadera, the same guy who voiced Spike.  Perhaps that is a hint to who they're aiming for for the Western dub (Steve Blum)?

Isn't just adding a bunch of pictures and a link spam

#39 Posted by x_XJules (303 posts) -

Awesome!!! I am so effing excited for this game!

I forgot, sorry. 
 
But it wasn't a very good game from what I heard.
#41 Posted by thehexeditor (1404 posts) -

Wait.. the names are Vincent and Catherine.. does this game take place in the US or Europe?

Hey, this ain't no Youtube spam!  Also, this is some very important news.

Nah, its Japan.
 
Pretty weird name choices, though.

Growlanser for the PSP.  And they only actually worked on the port and not the original game.
#45 Posted by thehexeditor (1404 posts) -
@mutha3:  guess the names are to distance itself from reality- ヴィンセントとキャサリン?

Ya its not horrible spam but you didn't say anything or add opinion about the content. You just posted a bunch of pictures and a link. To some who don't know what this is they wouldn't be able to find out without entering the given link.
#47 Posted by thekingoftoilets (193 posts) -

Duder! This looks mad awesome! The art is just sooo fresh and, being that Atlus is making this, is gonna be one hell of a demonic, wild ride!! Cant wait to see more!

#48 Posted by Tearhead (2168 posts) -

I am very curious to see the gameplay for this game. The art style looks amazing though.

#49 Posted by triple07 (1196 posts) -

Yes yes yes! Please put this game out in NA! Please!
