Catherine: Full Body Western Release Confirmed, Debut Trailer

As if there was any doubt, Atlus has confirmed a western release for the recently announced Catherine: Full Body.

The game will launch in the Americas and Europe. It’s worth pointing out that Atlus didn’t mention release platforms or a release window, while the Japanese release is confirmed for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita sometime next winter.

Alongside the western release announcement comes the first trailer for the game, which you can view above (Editor’s Note: it’s only in Japanese currently). Here’s some new artwork, as well as a high resolution version of the game’s logo:

Here’s a brief rundown on the game:

Is it a nightmare or a dream come true? A new test of Vincent Brooks’ morality is about to take the stage.

This new twist on the original Catherine, a mature romantic action-adventure puzzle game from the makers of the Persona series, will include a new love interest, “Rin,” with distinct storyline elements for the character, and additional puzzle content. Vincent’s love life has never been so complicated and dramatic!

Vincent’s apartment hasn’t seen the last of the sensual people in his life. With new storyline elements for both Catherine and Katherine, players will have ample opportunity for new experiences in Catherine: Full Body.

The game’s English website is now live – you can view that here.

    The 3rd one is interresting

    Just 5 minutes of browsing reactions on twitter https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5f61c1deb73130d2c865feb9ba12ad4b465c1460a74cab57c4408307a18da285.gif
    Might just pick this up out of spite to the usual suspects

  • machariel00

    So is this new girl a tranny or something?

  • Anon_Amous

    They did need a gay option so this works.

  • Madbrainbox

    Some lyrics to go with the end of the trailer.

    “I met this lady in Hollywood
    she had green hair but damn she look good
    I took her to my house ’cause she was fine
    but she whooped out a dick that was bigger than mine”

  • artemisthemp

    Astolfo is all the rage atm so devs most likely though it a good idea to include one.

  • Chaotic Thinker

    It’s a trap

  • NukeA6

    A loli trap? That’s a first.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    Could it be… a trap? that wouldn’t be a bad thing at all…

    Also, WTF happens to that website? that thing is trying to reload itself over and over and over again

  • Nin

    I’d laugh if Rin was a futanari. It would make all of these people’s reactions pointless, since they aren’t traps by technicality. It wouldn’t be the first time an angel would be such.

    I’d be a little disappointed if it turned out to be as mundane as glowing pubic hair though.

  • PaRaLLaXTHeTiCS
  • Migi

    Wouldn’t be suprised with ATLUS they the same scumbags that refused to add japanese dub cause they feel their games needed to be westernized.

  • Nin

    inb4 there’s a swarming mass of dick tentacles down there rather than just a mundane penis.

  • Jesse (RIP Iwata)

    The hips in this image say it all.

  • CrusaderEsper

    The music in the game was always the best. For your consideration, I present the menu theme, with Captain Sock dancing.

  • PaRaLLaXTHeTiCS

    So does the game’s title.

  • DizzyGear

    Include dual audio and i’ll buy it again.

  • David Curry

    God is Admiral

  • HeiwaJima Nero

    FFS there’s already a trap like character in the game there better not be an actual trap put in.

  • Matz

    Can’t wait to see the swarm of SJWs complaining about the game being transphobic and homophobic, oh wait they’re already complaining about it

  • Part of me wishes Rin isn’t a trap just so we can see SJWs bitch about “muh representation” again. They’d lose their goddamn minds.

  • buddyluv324
  • Valwin Mediaz

    Im sick of Traps not worth getting it

  • I’m talking specifically about if Atlus says “no, Rin is actually just a girl”.

  • buddyluv324

    Not as if it’ll matter at this point. Its almost impossible to make them happy

  • buddyluv324
  • Dewey Defeats Truman

    I never played the original as much as I wanted to. Think I still have it lying around but now that this is gonna be a thing I think I’d rather just wait till it drops. Game was always pretty cool from what I did play.

  • *_brutal3_*

    Can’t wait to see the swarm of SJWs complaining about the game being transphobic and homophobic, oh wait they’re already complaining about it

  • CrusaderEsper

    I think most straight people would be horrified. What is wrong with being straight? I have no desire to have sex with anything with a dick or that once had a dick. I’m not gay.

  • wait the new catherine site or our site?

  • PaRaLLaXTHeTiCS

    The blue waffle spread to her head.

  • InkViper

    Dale is only pissed off because a fictional character passes better than they do! lol…

  • Dewey Defeats Truman

    Everyone losing their minds on this stupid fucking shit is 6 years behind the curve.

  • oraoraikuze

    yeah, its pretty much confirmed, unless this game wants to tackle STD’s

  • DariusQ

    Next Winter?! There had better be a whole lot of extra content then.

  • porkbun

    SJWs are freaking out LMAO

  • Matz

    Wait what!? Heterosexual men are disgusted by the simple idea that they slept with a man while drunk? Who could have imagined it?

  • julien andre

    Wouldn’t be suprised with ATLUS they the same scumbags that refused to add japanese dub cause they feel their games needed to be westernized.

  • RichardGristle

    If it is actually a trap:

    Traps are low-tier shit and Atlus are faggots for trying to be PROGRESSIVE.

    On the flipside, SJWs are losing their bowels over it.

    It’s all pretty hilarious.

  • RichardGristle

    They don’t even know why Astolfo is great though.

    They just think throwing some garbage tranny into a game is going to be a hit.

  • RichardGristle

    Fourth route is Vincent contracts HIV?

  • Nagato

    Nah, I think she’s gonna be smooth down there instead, as she’s definitely gonna be an angelic counterpart to Catherine. She seems to be Vincent’s perfect dream girl down to a T, so there has got to be a downside to her, and her being the opposite of a semen demon would make the most sense here.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    the new Catherine’s site of course

  • >tfw no trap gf from a morally ambiguous videogame IRL

  • artemisthemp

    We have to wait and see maybe Rin is great…
    Wait a second… Astolfo are from Fate and in Fate are a girl named Rin which in the VN have a line with a defenseless Anus… The hint was their all along

  • Dr. Roswell. W
  • Jack Thompson

    Are we certain it’s not just because the VA managers charge out the ass for licensing overseas?

  • sanic

    Wonder if it’ll get censored or if I can sell off my old copy.

  • Probably won’t get here until winter 2019.

  • Jack Thompson

    End of the trailer. 99% confirmed to be a trap.

  • Dago

    They cited the JP VAs are too expensive “card

    as an excuse for P5 originally being dub only and ended up backpedaling later or how about Conception II being Dub only on PS Vita (Atlus USA but dual audio on PC (Spike Chunsoft)?

    It does not make sense that Spike Chunsoft was able to license de Jp audio but Atlus USA could not.

  • Dago

    It´s ATLUS USA i would not count on it.

  • Gale

    “Kotaku ‘journalist’ is a fucking idiot.” More at 11.

    They’re the same people that consider themselves “Persona fans” but still vehemently believe that Kanji’s gay, Naoto’s transsexual, and probably have some headcanon that P5MC is gay.

  • patyos

    Aww yeaaah more catherine

  • Nami

    When will the Japanese stop being so xenophobic and self-defeating? Release your goddamn game on all platforms. The Xbox One & PS4 are as identical as a white man and an arab man. They are both part of the Caucasoid subspecies and only differ in percentage of neaderthal DNA. All parts of their bodies can be shared for first aid.

    There is zero reason this isn’t on the Xbox One and by extend PC. Disgusting. As a Japanese born native I’m disgusted by my selfish people. Grow the fuck up Japan.

  • Jack Thompson

    Well then, they better fuckin get that dual audio licensing. Their games have been doing more than well enough for it.

  • Nin

    Not sure of the reason, but that would make sense in hindsight.

  • Nin

    If Rin was a “Gift Giving” fetishist on top of being a trap, riots would ensue.

  • Jack Thompson

    Is this some next level bait?

  • Freeman

    I’m not into any of this but good on Japan for continuing to not give a fuck about no game journo feelings.

  • A Loli 42 penises

    my girl, the reason this is not on the XBone is because literally NOBODY IN JAPAN GIVES A DAMN ABOUT THE XBONE.

    heck, they could release it on the Zeebo if they wanted yet, you don’t see me complaining

  • A Loli 42 penises

    sooo… you got Catherine, Katherine and… Qatherine??

    This Ed, Edd, and Eddy Reboot is looking wierd.

  • RichardGristle

    #ItsOkayToBeStraight

  • Dr. Roswell. W

    Nah, Rin makes sense,

    CatheRINe
    KatheRINe
    and just RIN.

  • A Loli 42 penises

    soo….. she’s Double D? (in the Ed, Edd, and Eddy analogy)

  • Dewey Defeats Truman

    I almost love this “dude Kanji’s gay lmao” mindset people that either haven’t played P4 or played P4 with their minds already set in stone about his character have. The entire point of all the dungeons, social links, the game in general really is that people are a lot more complex than first blush. People see him being confused about his feelings for a girl pretending to be a boy and assume that means he must be gay despite how he acts later on in the game, just like how he was afraid everyone would think similar things about him for having a sewing hobby.

  • Nathan

    Why would they release a game onto a system that is performing absolutely terrible in their home country? Hardly anyone in Japan owns an Xbox One. If they were gonna release it on there they’d most likely be releasing it at a loss for crying out loud

  • Dr. Roswell. W

    Pretty much.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    who cares about the opinion of an orc

  • Ingo Knito

    Hmm, I just assumed a genderless “angel” (contrast to Catherine), being everything Vincent wants in a woman/his life partner, but without genitalia for his libido, basically standing for the platonic love, which you do not get with either Katherine, or Catherine. Either way, to anyone triggered by this…. you need actual problems in your lives, mates.

  • Gamegodtre

    Fuck im horrified by some of the women ive come home with while drunk, i think ive made that exact same face when i see them in the morning

  • Gamegodtre

    they cant read english silly, and none of these people speak jpanese.

  • alterku

    She’s still got a mouth and hands, that would be good enough for me.

  • FRAN

    fuck you asshole

  • Jack Thompson

    You know they’ll complain regardless. It’s Japanese, it’s about sex, it doesn’t pander to their narrative of oppression. It has more than enough wrong with it in their eyes in the original game. They could be releasing a straight remaster and you’d hear them bitch to the high heavens.

  • Jack Thompson

    Yeah, but with her being just “Rin” you lose the phonetic ambiguity when he refers to her like with Catherine and Katherine.

  • Jack Thompson

    >only caring about mouth and hands
    >Not getting off to the living equivalent of a female mannequin like a mu onna.
    Get on my level.

  • Kumiko

    For all the hate the SJWs are giving this…won’t this mean there will be a transexual/gay/platonic love interest? (Depending on whatever Rin turns out to be in the end; either a mannequin, a trans woman or just a crossdresser). Yeah, Vincent is horrified in the trailer, but so was he when he originally wakes up with Catherine, and she seemed normal at the time; he was just shocked by what he did while drunk, and a situation like this would make anyone even more shocked on top of cheating. Isn’t this why it’s advisable for transexuals to tell their partners beforehand IRL?

    It doesn’t mean he’s going to be extremely homophobic/transphobic or whatever. Again, it will most likely mean that Rin will have a romantic end, which seems progressive to me, especially for a japanese game. He still considers Erica a friend after all, despite some insensitive comments, so I don’t see him outright hating Rin. In fact, I see this as an opportunity for him to change the attitude he had towards Erica in the original game that SJWs complained so much about. And isn’t that good too? To show that people can grow and change on these issues by interacting with someone, even if they originally react badly?

    I dunno, I wanted an Erica route in the original, so I’m excited for this. And if the theory about Rin being a sexless angel is true, then I’m even more interested; it’s a part of angelic lore that’s rarely explored, and a platonic or asexual love interest would be even more interesting.

  • Kumiko

    He was also briefly horrified when he woke up with Catherine in the original game, and she’s his ideal woman. Most people are conveniently forgetting about that.

  • You want me to fuck your asshole? At least take me to dinner first.

  • RetroGamer

    To see this exceed 1500 likes is saddening.

  • Dr. Roswell. W

    I think that’s the point. It’s removing Chaos and Order from the equation. Leaving you with what left.

    And what’s left is Rin.

  • ProxyDoug

    You’ll never see it coming…

  • Nami

    It is coming to the west. Porting between Xbox One and PS4 is trivial. HSSL is a clone of Shader Language 4+. I spent a decade in console development.

  • Nami

    What about “western release” has you confused? Do you not understand context?

  • A Loli 42 penises

    it’s a japanese developer, they don’t care about selling on the XBone in general. western or otherwise.

  • Nami

    It is an ignorant and xenophobic publishing process. I know. I’m Japanese. They sold 700k on PS3 and 300k on 360 for Catherine. It is moronic and self-defeating to exclude western consoles on a western release. Especially when porting between the PS4 and Xbox One is effectively cost-free. Next to zero overhead, and from the Xbox to the PC it is actually free. There is zero cost.

    You can easily double your sales by including an Xbox and Steam port in the west. Easily. SEGA has seen this, with Valkyria Chronicles selling 1.1 million copies on Steam, which sold 4x as fast on the PC than it did on the Playstation (and the Playstation had to rerelease the game twice to make similar numbers).

    However xenophobia and bigotry drives companies like this and SEGA and many other asian studios to avoid western ports to western devices. Because they think western gamers as lesser and unable to appreciate their titles. Which is objectively false as proven by sales.

  • Brandon Shorter

    Eh well … I mean your japanese but , given all the crazy shit you see coming out of Western media social justice site and people giving negative reviews to game like bayonetta because it “hot” chances I’d assume you’d come to the conclusion western honky hate my games , so fuck em . and The True fans would get a japanese systems . I am not sure what the PC issue is since PC gaming doesn’t have a particular nationality to it .

  • Chocolate ISISCream

    WHAT DID THEY MEAN BY THIS

  • Shub N. Rath

    The natural order is: Japan’s thing is lolis, America’s thing is chicks with dicks. Being mad that Japan’s not about gay stuff is messing with the natural order. It’s a bad idea.

  • Artliner

    the only place this transgender shít will sell is Japan and the US
