Atlus USA announced on Tuesday that the Catherine: Full Body game will launch in the Americas and Europe in 2019. The company also began streaming an E3 trailer that highlights Vincent's relationships with Catherine, Katherine, and new "third Catherine" character Rin. The video has mostly the same content as the game's Japanese promotional video that debuted in December, but the final animation is different.
Atlus revealed the game for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan in December. Atlus' Studio Zero division is developing the mature romantic action-adventure puzzle game. Rin is a new love interest for Vincent with distinct storyline elements and additional puzzle content. The game will also have new storyline elements for Catherine and Katherine.
Atlus teased in a livestream in September that Studio Zero is developing a new Catherine game. In the livestream, Trisha appeared as the "host" of the "Golden Employment Special," just as she hosts the "Golden Playhouse" television program in the game.
Atlus released its mature action-adventure/puzzle game Catherine for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011. Atlus USA released game in North America in 2011, and it also shipped in Europe and Australia in 2012. The game was a collaboration between Atlus and the Genius Party animators at Studio 4°C. The game shared notable staff with Atlus' Persona series, including director and producer Hashino, character designer Shigenori Soejima, and composer Shoji Meguro. Studio 4°C produced the animated sequences.
