Catherine, the Atlus-developed thriller platformer from 2011, has appeared on Steam PC as a special edition: Catherine Classic.
While its release was silent, in a sense, it was by no means a surprise. Prior to the game's release, images were appearing by SEGA DEV on the Steam forum pages for Bayonetta. The images, titled "Baa" were nothing more than pictures of sheep. This happened alongside discoveries of an ESRB rating for Catherine on PC.
Catherine originally released on Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2011. The player took the role of Vincent as he struggles to choose between the girl he would marry or a new mystery girl with the same name (Catherine/Katherine). It combined introspective narrative ideas with surprisingly difficult and surreal platforming dreamscapes.
This version, Catherine Classic, features a few improvements over the original releases. This includes 4k resolution support, custom controls, and an unlocked framerate. It also comes with both English and Japanese voice acting, something not offered in the original game.
It's important to note that this is not Catherine: Fully Body, a full and proper remake of the game currently in production. Fully Body will be offered on the PS4 sometime this year. Aside from the improved graphics, it will also feature new storylines as well as the option to play as Persona 5's Joker. More information on that as it becomes available.
Catherine Classic is available now on Steam for $19.99.
