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...

Catherine box art may have been modified for North American release

Y’know, this is why we can’t have nice things. Sure some people may have complained somewhere down the line but the rest of us would have been just fine. You may have remembered that the Japanese box arts for both versions of Atlus’ upcoming horror puzzler Catherine were a tad revealing. Nothing was actually shown but as you can see one features Vincent sliding in between Catheri...

Catherine gets some English screenshots and character bios

Atlus is keeping their fans well stocked with plenty of Catherine media it seems because today Atlus released a handful of new English screenshots. Or at least screenshots with English subtitles which means that fans may be able to listen to the original Japanese voice actors if they so wish, but this has yet to be confirmed. Either way though these screenshots reveal some of the interaction we ca...

Mahjong Cub3D arriving this summer for the 3DS

Huh… well Atlus’ current lineup for the 3DS only consists of the re-purposed Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked so it seems that they will be adding another game to help flesh out their lineup. Of course this game may be seen by some as a bit of a questionable move as Mahjong certainly isn’t as popular in the U.S. as it is in the Eastern world. Either way Atlus is goi...

Cursed Crusade website launched

Feel like doing battle in the name of a greater being than yourself? Well you missed the crusades by more than a thousand years but Atlus is looking to give people a chance to enter their own crusade, a cursed crusade that is. The title was mentioned only briefly in the past but it has now received plenty of attention as Atlus has launched an official website for the Cursed Crusade. On the website...

LinkageAX’s response to Atlus’ Catherine

Earlier this week, fellow editor Chris Cerami posted a news article about Atlus’ latest competition for their upcoming game: Catherine. The main point of this contest? To build a trailer out of fan responses. And so, I actually made a response to this video, just because I could. Here is the video, which may or may not be my actual views on the topic, that is totally a parody of a very popul...

Atlus wants you in their newest Catherine trailer

Catherine is set to release July 26 in North America and Atlus are looking for fan input for their latest trailer for the game. By heading over to the Atlus Youtube channel (or by watching the video below) fans can find the developer’s request for video submissions. All it takes is a video response to a few simple questions about marriage as it relates to the conflicts and themes of the newe...
