3DS Games we might never see outside of Japan

For the past week and a bit, I’ve been travelling around Japan, visiting all the cool places to taking in some fantastic sights. One such sight is electronic stores. (yes I get very excited when I see those) So while shopping at Yodobashi Kamera in Kyoto (similar to Best Buy in US, or Harvey Norman in AU) I came across some 3DS games that we might not NEVER see in the US or AU. I was instant...

The Cursed Crusade hands-on impressions

Atlus may have spent a lot of money on placing Catherine badge holders on every E3 badge this year but they had more to show off than Catherine at their meeting room this year. Namely they had a new hack and slash title called The Cursed Crusade available to play, and despite my excitement for Catherine I couldn’t turn down a chance to try it out. The Cursed Crusade has players playing as De...

E3 badges ask a question; celebrate the Legend of Zelda’s anniversary

E3 may not start until Tuesday but badge pick-up began today at the Los Angeles Convention Center. After waiting in a very small line both myself and MasterAbott were able to pick up our badges without any troubles. However instead of receiving relatively generic badge holders on straps, we received the above beauties. These badge holders are a cardboard advertisement for Catherine which will be r...

Catherine rated by the ESRB, given interesting description

We all knew that when Catherine appeared in front of the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) it would be an interesting turn of events. Catherine has managed to obtain an M rating from the ESRB and has been given quite a lengthy description. It appears that the game may be a bit more tame than we thought in the ways of sex, but it sure sounds creepy. Chainsaw wielding babies anyone? Cather...

Persona 2: Innocent Sin releasing this Fall on the PSP

The Shin Megami Tensei series is one that has done surprisingly well in the US marketplace considering it is hard for JRPGs to usually obtain a foot hold in the market. And it seems Atlus USA is going to be rewarding fans for their devotion to the series by bringing over the PlayStation Portable version of Persona 2 Innocent Sin. The title was released in Japan last month and now US residents will...

Catherine’s latest screens share the characters’ thoughts

Atlus released a batch of eight different screenshots today showing a number of different characters from the title voicing their thoughts about relationships and cheating. We see Vincent, Catherine, Orlando and Johnny each putting in their two cents, as well as a sheep but he’s talking about something different. Besides seeing some more of the other characters we also are treated to a gamep...

Catherine “Love is Over” Deluxe Edition is a deluxe bundle beyond imagination

A game like Catherine deserves a special edition and fans probably were expecting something to be in the cards at Atlus headquarters. Of course fans may not have been expecting them to double down either. They announced today that Catherine will indeed be getting a special edition release but this one will contain more than a handful of special features you won’t be able to get anywhere else...

Catherine box art to only be modified at “select markets”

Yesterday we discovered that the cover art for both versions of Catherine were appearing altered on the Gamefly service and then also on  Amazon.com (Amazon has since altered the box art back to the original). This spelled out bad news for fans of the game as it was originally announced that the cover art would not be censored at all and fans would receive the same cover as the Japanese version of...
