What’s Up PlayStation Nation,
If you’re a fan of Atlus games there’s a been a lot of hearsay prior to today’s official new and it started by way of speculation via twitter user Nibel. Who recently stated that there were rumors of PS3 titles being looked into for future re-releasing.
From there the speculation grew as many hoped it would be either a remake of demon souls but that title was only published via Atlus for the U.S. release as it wouldn’t make sense for such an announcement to be made. Lo and behold after many twitter users speculated on the title.
We were given confirmation not even 24 hours later that Catherine: Full Body is in currently in development for PS4 and PS Vita users..(In Japan) But it’s safe to assume this will hit stateside. As of now there is no word on if this will release on other competitive platforms but the PS4 and PS Vita release is certain. But aside from the news of the release Atlus released a statement regarding the upcoming PS4/PS Vita remake.
The new version of the puzzle game will feature a bit of brand new content not found in the original release such as:
- A third Catherine.
- New cut scenes for the previous heroines
- New endings
- New events
- New gameplay mechanics
- A new mode
- Online battles
More will be revealed as the remake nears release however but this is definitely good news for those who are interested in the title.
(Editors Opinion: Back during the PS3 generation I only played the demo but I loved the music and presentation of the game. I was thoroughly interested but never got around to playing the final game as I was a bit wrapped up in others [Sleeping dogs, War For Cybertron and Borderlands 2 with friends at the time] However with this news of the upcoming release I am very interested and will most definitely purchase and maybe even attempt to platinum this. On the flip side however I am a bit disappointed that announcements like these weren’t made for events like this years PSX. It definitely shows an opening for a missed opportunity. Even if this game is set to appear on other platforms it’s announcements like these these reach the hardcore PlayStation gamer and establishes confirmation of why gamers choose the PlayStation brand.)
