Catherine’s animation to sync with the voices of the English cast

One of the biggest gripes that players can have about games that were originally released in Japan and then later are dubbed in English for a Western release is the fact that the animation and characters don’t move their lips or sometimes even act accordingly for their new dialogue. But this will not be the case with Catherine.

Talking to Siliconera, Ms. Ruff (the woman voicing Katherine, Vincent’s actual girlfriend) revealed that she has been told to match all of her lines to a certain time and then Katherine’s actual lip motions are modified to fit her dialogue as good as possible. If the scene was already fully animated then she had to sync her voice to the character’s lips. Atlus itself has set the release date for the psychological horror puzzle for some point this Summer on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
