Atlus is working on a patch to make Catherine’s difficulty less of a nightmare. Easy mode has been made considerably easier and players will get a new assist option to help them complete the game. Director Katsura Hashino also changed the retry limit for easy and normal modes. In an Atlus blog post, Hashino says the patch relaxes the limit.
Want to retain the challenge? With the exception of few parts, players can revert the game to its original pre-patch form.
A release date for the patch has not been announced, but Atlus is preparing it for release. Hashino apologized for the lack of content in this patch. He says he wants to release the patch as quickly as possible so the team only added a minimal amount of content. But, Hashino has heard fan requests for an event scene viewer and responded to those comments with a ";)" (a winking emoticon).
