Catherine: Full Body is a remake/enhanced port of the 2011 Catherine video game. Full Body will be developed and published by Atlus’ Studio Zero Team for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game is set to be released on none other than Valentine’s Day. Febuary 14, 2019 in Japan. A western release of Catherine: Full Body is also planned, but has yet to be given a release date.
The developers reasoning for choosing the subtitle Full Body is because of its relation to full-bodied wine. Full Body is Catherine with more content (or depth), like a full-bodied wine. The developers said it also sounded more erotic, as the they plan to make the game more erotic.
A lot appears to happen in this short trailer of just under 2 minute. It announces that the love triangle has become a more of a love square. This is due to Vincent not having to choose between Catherine and Katherine, but now Catherine, Katherine and Rin. The trailer also gives us a glimpse of Rin, the new heroine, in some existing scenes as well as new ones.
- There is now, as seen in the trailer above, a third girl named Rin. Rin becomes Vincent’s new neighbor, as well as the pianist at the Stray Sheep. Rin’s involvement in the story will cause a split between Catherine and Katherine.
- There will be new patrons to interact with at the Stray Sheep.
- There will be new episodes or “sexy events” and over 20 new animated cut scenes to further develop the characters of Catherine, Katherine, and Rin. There will be new endings for Rin and additional endings for both Catherine and Katherine
- A wide level of difficulty options is also available. Apart from Easy, there is now a “Safety” mode which is even easier than easy.
- Autoplay: You can leave the difficult segments to the autoplay function which automatically climbs the shortest route. You can disable it at any time while it’s in operation, using it at your leisure. Only available on both “Safety” and “Easy”.
- No Game Over: Only available on Safety.
- No Time Limit: Only available on Safety.
- Skip Puzzle: Players can skip a puzzle segment with a single button for players who hate the block-climbing portion of the game. Only available on “Safety”.
- There are two modes: “Original” and “Arrange”.
- Original Mode enables the option to play the unaltered stages from the first version of game, although they have been adjusted a little.
- Arrange Mode features new mechanics and gimmicks, such as being able to link together a wide variety of blocks. There will be at least one completely brand new stage in Arrange mode, which may be an outer-space themed level seen in a screenshot.
- And so much more.
For those able to enjoy the Japanese release on February 14, 2019, enjoy! I will be keeping a look out for the western release date and keep everyone posted. 2
