And this week's 'WTF is this?' award goes to ...

... Atlus' just-announced action-adventure game, Catherine.

What's so WTF-ish about this title, which the Persona publisher is prepping for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360? Take a gander at its first teaser trailer:



A bit of a head-scratcher, ain't it?

For a bit of background on the game's main character, Vincent, and the girl of his, er, nightmares (the titular Catherine), check out this post and this post over at andriasang.com.

I am wondering if this is a Shin Megami Tensei game, or if this is a solo project by the Persona team alone.

As far as I can tell, it's made by the Persona team but isn't a Persona/SMT game.

It certainly looks wonderful, doesn't it? Still, I'd like to see how it's going to, you know, *play*...

Luminairis said...

Yeah I know. This doesn't look like an RPG at all. Maybe it's like Heavy Rain type scenario.

This looks awesome very ero. I wonder if it will come to the US.

Umm...I think that wins the WTF award FOR LIFE! That was more flavors of screwed up than I care to count. Wow. I'd love to know about the actual gameplay, too.

Luminairis: Yeah, I'm thinking it's going to be kind of like Heavy Rain, too.

Anonymous: I think it's pretty likely it'll be released in the US, as Atlus USA has a pretty great track record. Fingers crossed!

Ha! Justin, I love your comment: "That was more flavors of screwed up than I care to count."

This game looks ridiculously good.

Why does that comment not surprise me, Zigfried -- especially after the last few posts you've added to your site? ;)
