Siliconera reader and Atlus super-fan, Chris Taran, recently gave us a heads up about rumours that voice actress, Michelle Ruff, had announced she would be playing the role of Katherine in Atlus’ upcoming horror/puzzle adventure, Catherine.

 

Ms. Ruff had reportedly casually mentioned her role during a recent earthquake relief donation drive conducted on behalf of the anime community, which she attended with some of her peers in the voiceover business. We wrote in to Ms. Ruff to find out if there was any substance to the rumour, and she was gracious enough to write back.

 

“Yes, I can confirm that I’m indeed playing Katherine in the new Catherine videogame,” Ms. Ruff wrote in her reply. “It’s fine to release that information to the digital streets. It’s accurate!”

 

Michelle Ruff has played a major role in another recent Atlus game as well: Yukari Takeba in Persona 3. You may also know her as the voice of Etna in Disgaea 2, and she’s the voice of Crimson Viper in Street Fighter IV.

 

Ms. Ruff joins her peers, Troy Baker as Vincent, and Laura Bailey as Catherine, rounding out Catherine’s main cast. The game is slated for release this summer on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

 

A giant slice of ham and cheese pizza with onion for Chris Taran for the heads up!
