Catherine: Classic Now on Steam; Full Body Confirmed for Western Release
You didn’t fool me, Sega. I saw this coming way back in 2017. Atlus’ puzzle horror game Catherine is officially now on PC!
Earlier today, Catherine: Classic, the original version of the game that released in 2011, dropped on Steam. After multiple sheep related teases and ESRB leaks, it’s now available to all for purchase (for $19.99). Let is be clear that this is not the Full Body version which includes a bunch of new content and a whole nother Catherine/Katherine/Qathrin (whatever). Though, according to Atlus, Catherine: Full Body is confirmed for a Western release later this year on PS4 (not Vita)! Catherine: Classic does sport 4K resolution, an unlockable framerate, customizable controls, and the original Japanese voice track.
Despite having changed my thoughts on how certain characters are represented in the game since I reviewed it way back, Catherine remains one of my favorite Atlus titles. It’s a wonderfully weird puzzle game with excellent art direction, music, and performances. Assuming the PC port is solid, I highly recommend it.
