ATLUS has released a new trailer that shows the twisted nightmares at the heart of the upcoming action-adventure/puzzle game Catherine, releasing July 26, 2011 for PS3 and Xbox 360. They also revealed that the official Catherine demo will release for both platforms on July 12. The new video introduces viewers to a growing phenomenon that has just recently enveloped Vincent, the game’s protagonist. When he goes to sleep every night, he finds himself in the middle of twisted, terrifying nightmares, forced to climb up before his footing gives way and he plummets to his demise, and away from horrific manifestations in order to stay alive. Moreover, Vincent is not alone in this challenge; other men are struggling through the same supernatural maze. All of this is, of course, complementary to the dilemmas Vincent creates for himself during the day in his interpersonal relationships. The July 12 demo will introduce players to the main characters, particularly Vincent and his growing sense of panic at repeatedly finding himself within terror-filled nightmares. While your interested in Catherine, check out our awesome preview of this demo that we got a sneak peek at a few days ago.
Catherine is currently scheduled to release on July 26, 2011 for PlayStation 3 system and Xbox 360 system with an MSRP of $59.99 for the standard edition and $79.99 for the limited-run “Love Is Over” Deluxe Edition (available at participating retailers, while supplies last).
