The launch of Catherine is near and ATLUS wanted to go out with a bang before the release of arguably the strangest and most erotic game released this generation.
In a trailer named "Climb or Die!", the video is very gameplay-orientated, showing off its mechanics and unique style:
Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at ATLUS, adds the following to further help gamers understand the approach the company is taking with Catherine:
One of our biggest priorities in promoting Catherine is ensuring that gamers understand how story-driven the game is, how vital the characters and their arcs are to the overall experience. With this, the final trailer for the game, we want to tie everything together and bring the focus to the heart of Catherine's gameplay: tower nightmares, action-puzzle stages that force players to think fast and move faster while remaining perfectly interwoven with the story. These sequences are laden with symbolism and themes that emphasize and amplify the story's psychological horror, creating for the player the same feelings of tension and panic felt by the game's protagonist. After completing the story mode, gamers can play with a friend, cooperatively or competitively, in supplementary modes that ramp up the intensity and further deliver on the addictiveness and ingenuity of the tower nightmares.Want to try out this strange, but intriguing, game?
