If Katherine Sent You This Text Message, How Would You Respond?

By Spencer . June 29, 2011 . 6:34pm


In Catherine, Vincent receives text messages, and players get to respond to them. One of the early text messages is from Katherine, Vincent’s long term girlfriend. He receives this while drinking alone at the Stray Sheep.


From: Katherine

Like I said before, I’m having dinner with some old friends. It’s surprising… Most of them are already married, and almost half of them have kids. They’re all showing off pictures of their families and it makes me feel left out.

Maybe it’s time for us to get out of our comfort zone too.


Catherine has branching phrases that players chose to respond. The first three are: "Does it bother you," "Don’t over think it," and "Can’t be bothered now." Once you decide on the first line, another set of choices pop up, but these change depending on the first line. What you say affects Vincent’s thoughts on events and eventually the game’s ending.


And just for fun, here’s how Atlus PR Manager Aram Jabbari replied to Katherine.


Can’t be bothered now.

My brain is full of stuff.

    I love how right under Aram’s text, there was a screen of Vincent’s mouth all big.

  • Where the crap is the english demo?

  • DanteJones

    Mine would probably be:

    “Dude, I think shes hinting that she wants kids! What do I do?!? I mean, I don’t think I’d be very good with kids! Remember that one time where I ruined my nephew’s birthday party which ended up with his birthday cake catching fire? 

    Oh hey, remember to not tell Katherine about that, I’m pretty sure she still doesn’t know it was me.”

    And realize later I sent it to Katherine instead of my best bud because I sent it when I was drinking alone at a bar.

    • That’s actually genius, because now she won’t want kids either.

      • Probably was sent purposely to her for that exact goal.

        LOVE IS OVER.

    If I’m still with Katherine in the end, I’m good. <3

    aww i hope someone answers my message the “right” way :D

    kidding aside :D

    cannot wait for both Katherine and Catherine. i want them both O_O

      The Harem Ending is always the way to go.

  • xD, i think this msge was in Catherine’s japanese demo.

    I ignored it when i got it… :3 mwahahaha

  • Locklear93

    Oh dear.  I want to play this seriously the first time through, but with options like that, I’m going to be AWFULLY tempted to send ridiculous messages…

  • “Sure, let’s make some babies.”

    Honestly Vincent is a terrible role model.

    • I think that’s another point as to how he’s no less than us. xD

  • Vino (Tim N)

    That is one heck of a suggestion to deal with through a txt. But I guess its not as bad since you don’t have to sit there and think while looking at her in person, if that was said.

    Oh man, I’m going to enjoy this game too much. I love options like that, and I always take them seriously the first play through. Atlus really knows how to make you choose a girl.

    Why does every single picture of Vincent looks like he’s about to, or has, s*** his pants. Seriously, you have two fine women; would it hurt you to smile once in awhile?

    • Not if they threaten you with death. Hell have no fury like a woman’s wrath…

  • I’d send her a text saying; “Nope.avi”

  • Apache_Chief

    “You’re right. Let’s go make some new friends who don’t have any kids.”

  • Aoshi00

    I had fun choosing how to answer the messages.  The first time I answered by instinct (I went for the Katherine ending first).. then I had to consult a guide to get a trophy..  mostly it boils down to swinging the meter to angel, devil, or keeping it in the middle affecting the endings at the end (how you talk to NPCs also makes a difference), C would send you hot pics too :)  Looking forward to see the game translated in Eng.   

  • She would have an understanding that I’m not into ladies. Sorry Katherine-dahling.
