Bizarre upcoming adventure Catherine will be released in the UK this year, courtesy of publisher Deep Silver.
The adult-oriented game – which blends action adventure and puzzle gameplay with horror themes – has already generated plenty of coverage in the gaming press. It will arrive on multiple formats.
Gamers control Vincent, a man who cheats on his girlfriend Katherine with seductive blonde Catherine, and begins having nightmares from his guilt. Players must guide Vincent through his monster-ridden nightmares and help him make moral decisions. Catherine also boasts competitive and co-op multiplayer modes.
The game is already out in Japan from publisher Atlus and arrives in the US on July 26th for PS3 and Xbox 360. In the UK it is due for release sometime this year and will be distributed by Koch Media. The UK version will feature text localisation.
“We are very proud to be able to publish Catherine in all PAL territories as a Deep Silver game”, said Deep Silver CEO Klemens Kundratitz.
“Catherine is something new, fresh and exciting; unlike anything else in the gaming world – a unique mixture of genres. This agreement proves once again that games published under the Deep Silver label are not ‘more of the same’, ‘run of the mill’ productions.”
Atlus president and CEO Shinichi Suzuki added: “Atlus is very pleased to collaborate with an experienced, passionate publisher like Deep Silver for the release of Catherine in Europe.
“They share our belief that Catherine’s unprecedented exploration of the psychology and horrors of commitment and relationships, its breathtaking visual design and frantic action, adventure and puzzle gameplay make for an entertaining experience that cannot be missed.”
