With Catherine due to release in Europe next year, publisher Deep Silver has announced the game's "Stray Sheep" special edition

The collector's pack, named after the Stray Sheep bar from the game itself, is set to cost £54.99 — just a tenner more than the standard game. The set, which comes packaged inside a pizza box, includes a replica t-shirt, two Stray Sheep themed drinks coasters, and a..

Catherine To Tempt European Players In February

If you didn't cave in and import a North American copy of Catherine earlier in the year, then Deep Silver's got some hot news for you

The European publisher's revealed that the steamy puzzle platformer is set to launch in February overseas, with a reversible cover allowing you to switch between the game's two provocative female protagonists. If you're anything like miserable lead character Vincent,..

Catherine Sold 200,000 Copies In Its First Week

Bloody nora

When Atlus said it had enjoyed its best launch ever with Catherine, we weren't expecting numbers anywhere near the 200,000 mark. But that's exactly what Catherine pulled off in its first week on sale, which is a resounding success for such an unusual title, and a big "oorah" for folks that are getting a bit bored of Shooty Shooty Shooty Game III releasing every other week. For..

News: Catherine Breaks Sales Records For Atlus USA

Catherine Breaks Sales Records For Atlus USA

Ever since the first images of Catherine leaked out of Japanese gaming bible Famitsu, there's been an intrigue surrounding the odd-ball puzzle title

It's strange to us that so many people latched onto the game while ignoring other intriguing Japanese titles such as Shadows Of The Damned, but the video game market continues to prove its unpredictability. Either way, you won't hear Atlus complaining,..

News: Confirmed: Catherine Travels Overseas To Europe

Confirmed: Catherine Travels Overseas To Europe

Just days after Atlus said it was looking for a distribution partner to release Catherine in Europe, Deep Silver has stepped forward

The game will be formally localised in French, Italian, Spanish and German. “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..

Atlus On Catherine In Europe: We Need A Partner

Promising looking puzzle-platformer-cross-dating-simulation, Catherine, does not yet have a European release date

That's because publisher Atlus has no plans for a European release — but it's not for the want of trying. According to the publisher, there are currently no plans because the publisher is in need of a distribution partner. Previous Atlus titles such as Persona 4 and 3D Dot Game Heroes..

News: Here's Everything That's Inside Catherine's Ostentatious Collector's Edition

Here's Everything That's Inside Catherine's Ostentatious Collector's Edition

It takes seven-minutes for the over-enthusiastic Atlus employee in this unboxing video to reveal everything that's included in Catherine's "Love Is Over" collector's edition

That's because there's a lot of stuff included. And while most of it might be junk, you've got to appreciate Atlus for releasing its game in a pizza box and including a pair of boxer shorts. No statues and DLC here.

First Impressions: Catherine on PlayStation 3 Demo

Catherine on PlayStation 3 Demo

Video games can be quite immature

Even when they come attached with mature age ratings, the content inside can often feel like the opposite. Enormous guns, vats of gore and over-sized breasts are not necessarily indicative of what it means to be mature, in fact they are the antithesis. Few games capture the essence of adulthood. For all its faults, Heavy Rain came close. Quantic Dream's thriller..

Be Ready For Your Date With Catherine Next Week

If you're still not entirely sure what Catherine is all about, everything will be revealed next week

Atlus has confirmed that the game will receive a PlayStation Network demo on July 12th, so you'll finally be able to make sense of all the platforming, dating and sheep-people drama. Perhaps. The demo will be exactly the same as the one on the Japanese store, but with the words replaced by ones you..

As Shakespeare Famously Wrote: Catherine Or Katherine?

Personally we'd rather be with a girl called Katherine

Nothing against the Catherines of the world, but there's something a bit more exotic about the way Katherine looks on paper, isn't there? It stands out on the page like a misspelled word. It just looks better. Plus you can call her "Kay". And "Kay" sounds better than "Cee" doesn't it? Oh yeah. Video games. Both..

News: Do You Ever Want To Get Married?

Do You Ever Want To Get Married?

That's the question posed by the latest trailer of Catherine, which features the first ever footage of the puzzle-platformer in English

In truth, the trailer's a little bit goofy, with numerous "fans" discussing whether they want to get married. We quite like the guy that implies getting married would ruin his life. We also like the fat guy pretending he has a girlfriend. Was that a bit..

Catherine 'Love Is Over' Deluxe Edition Is Absolutely The Best Thing Ever

No one can accuse Atlus of misunderstanding the audience for its zany puzzle-platformer Catherine

The marketing team in North America has decided to go bonkers with Catherine's Deluxe Edition, eschewing traditional art-books and early-access DLC. Instead, Catherine's premium package ships in a "Stray Sheep" pizza box, the very same joint that in-game protagonist Vincent claims his greasy..

News: Confirmed: Catherine Seduces The West This Summer

Confirmed: Catherine Seduces The West This Summer

It's been the "will they, won't they" story of the past few days, but Atlus has finally confirmed that Catherine will come Stateside this summer

The news comes via the game's official website, which can be found through here. There's no word of a European release, but with the PlayStation 3 region-free, importing the game won't be a big deal. It's the English sub-titles that are most important.
