English Catherine Demo Incoming

By Spencer . June 9, 2011 . 10:34pm

catherine11 Some readers may have tried Catherine before. Atlus released a Japanese demo on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.That demo is being localized with English voice acting for North America. Download it and you can meet Vincent, Catherine, and complete an early block puzzle.

 

I tried a bit of the English version yesterday and voice acting was already implemented in the full game. Catherine sounds great with Troy Baker voicing the lead character and Laura Bailey as Catherine.

 

Catherine comes out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on July 26 in North America. The version Atlus USA prepared has the downloadable patch built into the game. A few puzzles were tweaked too so they were less frustrating from the Japanese version. Make no mistake Catherine is still difficult even on easy and for people who crave a challenge there’s always hard mode which was untouched.

      You getting the Love Is Over edition too?

      • PrinceHeir

        hmm im not sure :

        i might though, i don’t know if my gamestop(i hate gamestop X_X) offers it or not.

        • DanteJones

          Last I checked it was up for pre-order still at GS, I’m just getting the regular edition though. Although the boxers are pretty sweet. ;D

          To be on the safe side, I’m getting it via Amazon, because GameStop tends to hate Atlus.

    Totally nabbing this demo when it comes out. The Catherine demo and the El Shaddai demo will probably have to hold me till I can convince the boyfriend into getting both the games for me next month.

    When is the demo coming?

    • http://www.siliconera.com Spencer

      I thought this was obvious, but apparently it’s not. If we had a date we would have shared it.

        Perhaps it would be useful to amend the article with an, “Unfortunately, Atlus USA has not disclosed a release date for the demo.”

  • Letiumtide

    I put a preorder down on the Deluxe edition earlier today, but I’m still not entirely sold on it.

    • HistorysGreatestMonster

      I’m getting the regular edition. Don’t need a pizza box and boxer shorts.

  • cj_iwakura

    So is the Normal mode untouched as well? Because the puzzles were just fine. Tough, but rewarding once you learn the solution. I’d hate to see the US get cheated of that.

    Also, I understand the original Japanese version Hard was different from Normal. So will that be the old Normal, or what?

    • lurkingsalt

      In the JP version you could revert back to the un-patched version by holding a button or something. I hope this is what Atlus would also leave in for the US version for people like you that want the exact un-patched release.

      • http://www.siliconera.com Spencer

        There is no option to turn the patch on or off in the US version.

  • Genjo

    • http://www.twitter.com/christaran Chris Taran

      He played the full game (not to say the entirety of it, but the retail version) yesterday at E3. Not at home. Not the mentioned -upcoming- demo.

  • Genjo

    hmm well i did some googling and find there is a English Catherine demon in works but it might not get release maybe not until next week or so?

        “That demo is being localized with English

        Catherine, and complete an early block puzzle.”

        It is a little hard to extrapolate from this sentence that you meant the Japanese version. First time I read I was like “wtf, it can’t be out right now, siliconera wouldn’t have that exclusive info?”

  • http://twitter.com/tommyt74 tommy

    LOL!

    Vincent was featured in P3P :D

    • http://www.siliconera.com Spencer

      Yeah… we mentioned that last year!

  • CleruTesh

    I already pre-ordered, there is no way I could not buy a game with such fantastic artwork & music. But everytime I hear something like “easy mode is difficult” I get worried. I really hope that I actually get to complete this game.

      As someone who played the Japanese retail version:

      I disagree. The easiest difficulty is a cakewalk after they patched it.

    I already know I’ll be buying this game, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting to play the demo. I played the Japanese demo and only had a tiny idea of what was going on, so this’ll be great!

    This game needs an EU release.
