Last month, Atlus revealed that they would be bringing Catherine to North America. We've gotten some non-English screenshots since then, but Atlus has finally released the game's first translated English screenshots along with some information on the back stories of the three main characters in the game.
Catherine is an action/adventure game with a horror side that is intended for adults. The premise of the game is a man named Vincent who wakes up every night from his dreams. Katsura Hashino, the director of Persona 4, is the producer/director of Catherine. Shigenori Soejima is the character designer and Shoji Meguro is the game's composer.
Catherine is currently set for a Summer 2011 release on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
