If you're as intrigued by Atlus' upcoming action/adventure/puzzle game, Catherine, as I am, you'll probably be happy to know that you can get a little taste of the game via the demo now available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE. (Right now, only to Xbox LIVE Gold members.)
The demo is a brief tour of the intro sequence that shows off the anime and in-game cutscenes as well as a nice bit of the storyline and some gameplay. Despite everything I've read about and reported on with this game, I still don't feel like I have a handle on what it's all about. So I'm totally going to download this tonight and give it a whirl. (I really wish I didn't have to go out to dinner because then I could play it all the sooner!)
Catherine is scheduled for release on July 26 for the PS3 and Xbox 360, and there's a special "Love Is Over" Deluxe Edition available for $79.99. That comes with the game, a "Stray Sheep" pizza box, a Catherine pillowcase, Vincent's pink polka dot boxers, and an "Empty Hearts" men's large T-shirt. (Check the images in the gallery below) And if you pre-order at a participating retailer, you can get the Catherine Sound Disc & Art Book as a free bonus regardless of whether you buy the regular or deluxe edition.
