Deep Silver To Distribute Catherine In PAL Territories

Well, that was fast. Remember that story about how Atlus couldn't release Catherine in Europe without a publishing partner for the region?

Well, it has been announced that Deep Silver has entered a publishing agreement with Atlus to distribute the erotic/horror puzzler in PAL territories. Both parties are intrigued by the unique and interesting, and both are happy to give European gamers the opportunity to try something fresh. Said Klemens Kundratitz, Deep Silver CEO:

"We are very proud to be able to publish Catherine in all PAL territories as a Deep Silver game. Catherine is something new, fresh and exciting; unlike anything else in the gaming world – a unique mixture of genres. This agreement proves once again that games published under the Deep Silver label are not 'more of the same', 'run of the mill' productions."

Atlus President and CEO Shinichi Suzuki said Deep Silver shares the developer's philosophy that Catherine's original style makes for a "thought-provoking, entertaining experience that cannot be missed." We don't yet have a European release date for the game, but for now, it's enough to know the promising title is on the way.

That's amazing, man.

Ive already seen him on his current tour at his UK date on July 3rd. Right bang at the front in a crowd of 50,000. The pic in my avatar is from that UK date. It prompted the UK press to call him the greatest artist of the last century lol. Seriously, they went overboard on his praise.

You're going to be blown away by the last male superstar left.

Report back to me via forum PM or a reply to a comment when you can!

Will do!

Because of the attack in/around oslo this weekend it's been postponed to aug 2nd. This will be the fourth Prince concert I'm attending. The first was the SOTT tour.

And he *is* one of the greatest artists of the last century.

That is phenomenal. I'd give my left arm to have seen him then! I missed out on it all.

Understandable about the postponement, truly tragic events that had happened.

August 2nd isn't long.

Awesome news, this game has been high on my list for ages now. Its good to know publishers are willing to try knew and unique IP's in this age of multiple iterations of established sellers. Bit worried though after watching both child of eden and shadows of the damned flop, that europe needs to get its head outta the FPS mind lock it's in and give innovation a go and reward it. Let's hope we get lolli-pop chainsaw aswell :-)

Glad you guys across the pond can enjoy this one as well. Deep Silver is cool for stepping up to publish unique stuff and not more of the same.

And I can't believe there's a guy doing it named Kundratitz. Go get em titz!

Really? From the reviews I've read the puzzles seem quite varied. I'm not a big fan of block puzzles, but I'm still getting it because the story looks very interesting.

I'm still importing this. Who knows how long the localization will take. Why wait when you can have it now?

I read the review on IGN too now, and this looks good indeed.

For some strange reason it reminded me of one of my absolute favs on the PSP, "Crash!". The puzzles are quite different of course, but still... Maybe it's the dream/nightmare setting. But the animation of the guy looks similar too.
Anyway, if this is anything like Crash it will be *awesome*.

I *think* you mean "Crush".

If so, I agree. That game got me through the month my PS3 was YLOD'd.

Omg of course. "Crush!" was its name *duh*
Yeah that game is simply fantastic. Lovely merge of 3d and 2d in such a creative way I've not seen before or after.

That's one game I'd love to see a sequel of!

Okay. You two are making me want to try this Crush game. It looks interesting. I see it's on PSN for $10. Might give it a go before my copy of Catherine arrives.

Well, it's the best of it's kind I have ever played, Cole. If you are even just slightly interested in puzzle games then I can't see how you can go wrong with Crush.
One thing is the game itself, the whole concept of switching between 3D and 2D to solve the puzzles is just pure genius. And it's all wrapped up in a cool story and a great *looking* game, and you got one very entertaining package. Metascore 82%.
