IRVINE, CALIFORNIA — MAY 16, 2011 — ATLUS today launched the “Are You Committed?” trailer and revealed hot new artwork and screenshots for Catherine, its upcoming action-adventure/puzzle game from the makers of the award-winning Persona series, coming July 26, 2011 for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system (PS3™) and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
In a video previously released on YouTube, and in spirit of the game’s theme, ATLUS asked gamers to post direct video responses answering three heavy questions about commitment: 1) “Do you want to get married?” 2) “If so, and you happen to be seeing someone at the moment, to them?” 3) “If not, why?” ATLUS selected answers from a few of its more eloquent fans to appear in the official trailer.
“To shine light on some of the heavy ideas Catherine brings to the table, we wanted gamers to put themselves in the same mental place that Vincent, the game’s protagonist, finds himself,” commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales. “Thanks to everyone who participated! We enjoyed hearing the different responses, opinions, and points of view on commitment.”
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). Fans are encouraged to pre-order to receive the Catherine Sound Disc & Art Book, a free extra available to customers who reserve either the standard or deluxe edition of the game for either platform.
