Adventure/Puzzle from the looks of it, I didn't find out about the Demo until the day after it came off of the PSN, so I never played it.

No plans at this time does not mean not coming out ever. It's PR speak for "we're not ready to make an announcement at this time." That doesn't mean that it will come out, but it doesn't mean that it won't either.

The mods on the Atlus forums are backpedaling on that statement, stating more or less what I said above.

Though it seems awfully weird they would say no plans, while emailing the consumer base of their games teasing plans.

Never know, they took a chance on Demon's Souls and it worked out well for them. Based on the trailer it looks bizarre enough that it could get some traction.

This has been thrown around in a few Catherine forums. Anyway, do want.

Do you prefer Japanese voiceovers with subtitles rather than the typically localized English voiceovers? A Japanese gaming publisher really wants to know.

It is my pleasure to bring you an exclusive Destructoid survey conducted in partnership with a major Japanese company. We are looking to conduct a relatively informal survey and open conversation on the topic of Japanese titles (especially those that have never made it to North America). At the heart of it they're curious if a product remaining somewhat pure to its Japanese roots might be better received by serious J-gamers in the States. Your answers will be DIRECTLY influencing a significant decision on an upcoming title.

really it should be

or
2. dub and sub

as sony would not allow dub only games to get disc release (yakuza is exception)

The only thing that worries me about the game is that I think it's not a full Persona-like game. I don't know if it's even an RPG (I could be wrong, I didn't get to play the demo). So if it's really a huge anime movie with some puzzles thrown in between cutscenes, then it probably wouldn't do very well in the US.

Now, if the game were bundled in with limited-edition copies of an unannounced Persona 5, that would be a better idea for Atlus.

My impressions from the demo/trailers is that it appears there is a hub world of sorts, being the bar. You can move around, talk to people, play one of the arcade games, and interact with the jukebox. You also get calls and texts to your cellphone from the K/Catherines and others. How you answer will help to determine your ending.

The nightmare is the gameplay time. You are tasked to climb a tower as fast as possible while a nightmarish creature climbs the tower, trying to kill you. Tower climbing is accomplished by moving blocks and avoiding obstacles (and other sheep).

So it's really quite similar to Persona. Daytime = Social Link. Night time = Tartarus/Gameplay.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that, you're right. Well, maybe it will do well if it's released here. I know I'd buy it even if it were just an anime movie with minigames in between...

Oh my god, the internet needs to SHUT THE Fuck UP about this "not getting localized." All that happened was some no-name website emailed them, they replied with a standard PR email saying nothing is planned YET, the retarded website claims this is a confirmation that it's not being localized, and the internet goes apeshit. IT'S COMING. Jesus Christ internet. I am so sick of this shit. This is not fucking Scamco we are talking about here.

If I hear one more gullible dipshit saying "IT'S NOT COMING OMG" especially with the two Catherine-colored emails they've sent out....
RIP Hiroshi Yamauchi

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

But, it's teh internets, overreacting is part of the game!

Yes, seriously, I never even heard of beefjack before this fiasco. Which is probably why they did this in the first place, traffic to their site. Though, I don't think a lot of people will be visiting the site after this.

To the internet's defense, an Atlus representative did make a similar statement about having no plans to localize Catherine during a podcast.

They'll announce it when they're ready. Again, after these two emails there is no way they aren't going to announce it shortly. Atlus USA pretty much never announces things for US release until after the Japanese version has been released (DS Overclocked a recent exception), but they do end up localizing nearly everything their Japanese arm releases. Catherine has been out for all a week in Japan. They aren't fucking NOA or Scamco so I'm not sure why people have so little faith in this being released here.

Oh, I agree with you. I'm just pointing out that the no-name site wasn't the only spot that the statement was made. All in all, it's just as you said: PR speak for we're not ready to announce it yet.

Is that official? Have a source to back that up? I find that hard to believe considering Atlus themselves going on record saying they have no plans as of now to release it here.

It's unofficial. Atlus hasn't even announced the game for a US release yet. The only site I've seen that actually has the June 1 listing is estarland.
