Today February 17th is the official release date of Catherine in Japan. Here's a little fanart to celebrate.
Catherine is the new game from the Persona 4 team at Atlus, notably Katsura Hashino (Director), Shigenori Soejima (Character Design) and Shoji Meguro (Music).

It's an extremely interesting project, with the social element of the Persona series mixed, this time, with a puzzle game based on quick reflexion and reflexes. The themes Atlus want to develop in the story are also fascinating because rarely well explored in gaming : dream, madness, engagement, marriage, temptation, sex. I personnaly can't wait. :)

There's no release date in USA or Europe yet, but I bet it will be announced soon. We'll probably have to wait a little while however. A demo is available right now on japanese Xbox Live.

Edit : Catherine will be available july 26th in US stores. Good job Atlus, but don't forget Europe !
Edit #2 : Catherine will be available this year in Europe as well. That's cool to see this kind of support for this kind of game. :)

Edit #3 : Ok, I've actually finished the game now. So long since I've done this fanart, but I loved the game. So original, with great characters and story, and some crazy endings. Try to get them all folks, it's worth the effort ! And Atlus managed somehow to include an insane twist after the end of the game (play the other modes to find out). Long story short : "Fuckin' cubes, I'm gonna climb the shit outta you !" :)

It was hard to draw him because I had a very bad resolution on the drawing, so I had to work with very few details. Glad he came out ok ! Not sure he's enjoying himself very much though ! :)

Good question ! I figured even not full-frontal nudity should be tagged mature but maybe I didn't read the rules well enough. Technically Catherine is nude and they ask to tag if there's nudity, so... :)

This is a really impressive piece. Normally, I find myself a bit reluctant with drawings such as this one, but I can't help but appreciate what you've done here. Somehow, you've managed to portray Catherine's ever-so-obvious sexiness without going over the top. Not the easiest thing to do, especially given the kind of character she is in the game.

But what speaks to me more than what you've done with Catherine the character here is simply how detailed this drawing. I simply can't overlook how well you colored this piece; from Catherine's eyes, lips, and skin complexion to the veins on the arm and the little details on the fork, you seemed intent on making sure that there were no stones unturned when putting this together. It's really the little things that you were will to take care of that makes this much more than a simple fanservice-oriented drawing.

Lastly, even though you did this prior to the game's release, you pretty much nailed the game's pleasantly bizarre atmosphere, while making sure that your own artistic touches were still evident. So, in my opinion, you pretty much hit all of the nails on the head when you did this.

I just got the game a couple of days ago, so I thought I would take the time to see what I could find in the fanart department. I'm glad I got the chance to see this solid image. Very well done! :thumbsup:

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed comment ! :)

Thing is, I draw very slowly. Maybe because I have no formation of any kind I have to reiterate a lot to obtain a result I (kinda) like. But because of this, I usually invest a lot of time on little things and details. So I'm not sure it's always very good, but at least I try to implement some funny or interesting things to see here or there. It's nice to know some people notice ! :)

You're welcome. I just try to call things like I see them, nothing more. =P

Anyways, don't fret the idea of drawing slowly. If it enables you to put together efforts like this, it beats rushing things. How I wish I could say something similar, but that's another story altogether. :lol: In any case, it's clear that somewhere along the way, you found what you needed to finish this as well as you did, and that's what matters. Again, I'm just glad I got the chance to see it. :)

It also appears that you're a big fan of the "Persona Team," which is cool. I've only played P4 and this game myself, but there's no mistaking that they make some truly engaging games.

I honestly think Atlus is the real japanese RPG powerhouse nowadays, in terms of quality. Other studios efforts are pretty much hit or miss these days, whereas Atlus manage to maintain a consistant level of quality in the games they produce. With each title they build on what they have and at the same time don't fear to try new things. They are also extremely efficient at doing more with less, quite the opposite from Square for example.

The reason I've drawn many fanarts of their games is also because I really like their visual design choices (obviously !), simple but effective and classy. It's just fun to draw their characters. :)

I'm not the biggest fan of RPGs, but I will say that because of the likes of P4, Atlus has my attention more than any other big player in the genre. I think that the genre has gotten so wrapped up in tradition, that it really becomes something special when someone even tries something a bit unique. It's not very difficult to give Atlus kudos in this regard, especially when they're still making great games, on top of being unique.

The visual style of the Persona team's efforts is very appealing. In fact, I just recent purchased an artbook of Shigenori Soejima's work myself after this recent Atlus buzz I've been in. So you can say I'm also starting to find myself in the same boat as you on the subject. =P

Diamond4444 Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011
I assume you've finished it so you're not afraid of spoilers. :)

I got Katherine bad ending first, a bit of a letdown but it suited my playthrough, I played a Vincent who couldn't chose between the two until the end.

My two favourites are Catherine true ending and Freedom true ending. The former is pure comedic gold, and I feel the latter is the most logical ending for Vincent, and I loved the final cutscene.

I actually did not finish yet, but you're cool because I watched some of the endings already! I have been so busy with university lately that I didn't get to play, and I just couldn't wait to see the endings. (But it's fall break now, so I'd better get cracking!)

Right now though I am leaning heavily toward Katherine (law), answering the questions honestly. (But I'm not THAT much of a prude, I just like my relationships neat and tidy.)

I love the Catherine true ending as well. "Oh, hey there, dad. Didn't, uh, didntseeyathere." And the Katherine true ending because it almost made me cry and it's just so sweet. I didn't see the freedom endings, nor the one where Vincent gets run over. I just read about those. (And I'm glad Katherine turned Jonny - I think it was him - down in the freedom ending.) :)

It's always interesting to read about other's playthroughs, this game can reveal some things about the people who play it. :)

I guess I'm a little bit like Vincent, I don't like sudden big changes if I'm comfortable in my current situation (it's not that uncommon I guess). Thing is, I didn't like Katherine's attitude, trying to force Vincent to change, acting a little bit like she was the only responsible person in their couple. Maybe it was the only solution she found, but it didn't really pushed me to protect what they had no matter what, even if she was a compelling character. That's why I felt the true freedom ending was spot on, and I liked how they showed Vincent's realization that it was what he needed to move forward.

Exactly! I'm one of the rare few for whom it's either honesty or feeling guilty - so I try to answer as honestly as I can. It's showing by the meter slanting largely towards law. I read an article where the author's wife was sitting next to him as he played it and the fact that he got one of the better endings with Katherine (true or good, I forget) and his wife was very, very happy :)

I like thinking that Katherine is mentally upset, even though it's probably not true. The ant thing has me absolutely intrigued though. (I absolutely adore her, I'm cosplaying her for various occasions leading up to the next Connecticon.) The beauty of this game is that everything is correct, in a sense. You watch one ending and think it's perfect, then you find another ending you like better, then you find yet another ending that you like even more! I can't wait to see what I get.

Vince is either a static or dynamic character based upon this system of endings. It's whatever the player wants it to be. For you, it's the freedom ending, for other it's the Catherine ending, others the Katherine ending. Me? I don't know, I'm waiting until I can immerse myself in the game a little more. (Curse you, Professor Layton's London Life, for being so addicting!)

Yeah, it's kinda hard to play two or more games at the same time. I'm currently into Deus Ex Human Revolution and Dark Souls, and it's tough to chose which one to play when I get back from work and have only two or so hours of free time. :)
Good luck, because it seems London Life is pretty long too. :)
