Catherine Lands in Europe This February
Puzzle platformer/dating sim/anime Catherine landed in North America this past summer. The game received mostly positive reviews, and our own Mike Splechta awarded the game a very impressive 9/10 score. Now, Europe will be getting the puzzler in the near future.
Catherine is scheduled to launch in PAL territories in February 2012. First run copies of the game will be extra special, as they'll feature a flip cover. On one side, you'll see Catherine. On the other side, you'll see Katherine. Sweet!
I wish North American copies of the game would have had that awesome game case. Oh, well. I guess it makes up for the fact that Europe is getting the game a considerable amount of time after we did over here.
Personally, I thought Catherine was a pretty good game. I found the puzzles to be a bit repetitive and quite frustrating, but I absolutely loved the story. Now, do I think it's a game that should be localized in different regions? Given its unique style, I would have to say, absolutely!
