Famitsu posted screenshots of Catherine, a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game developed by key members of the Persona team. Vincent, an listless salaryman, is the main character and his life turns into a nightmare, literally, when he meets the charming Catherine.
Vincent must climb an endless staircase in his dreams to wake up. Another screenshot shows Vincent turning into a lamb… and in his dream lambs are condemned to die. Other lambs are trapped in this nightmare with Vincent too.
“Atlus’ first entry on HD systems is a completely original title. Before we assault HD systems with a mainline RPG, the team wanted to try creating something new,” Katsura Hashino said to Famitsu. “The results are quite strange…”
Japan will see how strange Catherine is plus animation from ThunderCats company Studio 4°C later this year when Catherine comes out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
