Like many Atlus developed titles, Catherine lets players decide Vincent’s fate. Instead of siding with law or chaos, you get to choose which woman Katherine or Catherine is the right match for Vincent. Chapters end with question and answer sessions in a confession room.
What’s interesting about Catherine is you can see a general overview of how other people answered the same questions. Pie charts are comprised from realtime data from Catherine players.
Catherine doesn’t have a multiplayer online mode, but there is a score attack style feature. Babel mode has players guide Vincent up a block tower. After you reach the top, Catherine posts your score online and you can see how you stack up against others on the online leaderboards. Colosseum mode makes tower climbing competitive. This offline versus mode pits two players against each other in a race to the top. After you clear Golden Theater mode, the main story, once you’ll unlock Colosseum mode.
Catherine comes out this week in Japan.
