Catherine Getting Playable Demo Before Release

It's nice to get a glimpse of a game we're anticipating but don't understand... like at all. One such game is the bizarre title Catherine by the team behind the Persona series. The symbolic psychological action offered by the MegaTen series has found a new home on Atlus' first next-gen game, and the results so far have been... confusing, to say the least.

From what little we've gathered, Catherine consists of a few different stages every day: one where the protagonist Vincent flirts with the two titular ladies via text message; one where he drinks with his friends at a classy bar; and then the Nightmare stage, which has Vincent defending himself from strange sheep-people as he climbs out of his psyche.

The game's producer has admitted that the interplay between these areas are complex beyond immediate comprehension--so far, the game doesn't have a definable genre beyond "drama action." Thus, he's just revealed a demo which will clear up some of the confusion.

Catherine isn't set for a US release yet, but Atlus has proven quite willing to port over even the strangest games for our consumption, so it's probably only a matter of time. The demo in question will be in Japanese, of course, so feel free to dive further into the despair of confusion!
