There are many things that can be said and have been said about Atlus’ Catherine since it has been officially released in Japan. Unfortunately the main thing being said by most of the games’ players is the fact that it is punishingly difficult and players are unable to even make it past the first few levels even on the easiest difficulty of the game.
Apparently the nightmare segments are extremely difficult on Easy Mode and because of this many fans have become upset with the fact that Atlus created such a difficult game. But Atlus has taken these complaints to heart and are working on fixing the issue. Katsura Hashino wrote on the game’s blog that they are currently working on a patch to make the game easier for players and stated that the reason for the difficulty was so that players would feel as if they were truly in a nightmare and would feel accomplished once they overcame them.
