Time to get excited: Catherine demo hitting the PSN and XBL soon

Ever since last Summer we’ve been teased by Catherine.  The game has gotten quite a lot of hype in the past year since the game boasts a rather unique art style and a plot that revolves around relationships and commitment as opposed to slaying a bunch of aliens or rescuing a kingdom from a maniacal warlord.  In a way, gamers have been fritting over Catherine just like Vincent, the main character in the game. We’re all enamored by Catherine but we know next to nothing about her and don’t know if she’s truly the perfect package.

Well next week we’re going to find out if Catherine has the goods as Atlus have announced that the Catherine demo will be available on the Japanese PSN and Xbox Live next week.  Details on the demo weren’t shared but I think it’s safe to assume that we’ll be able to put Vincent through his paces in the nightmare climbing segments and perhaps some real-world action in the Stray Sheep Bar.  Catherine still doesn’t have a release date outside of Japan, but thanks to the wonders of the PSN, anyone can create a Japanese PSN account thus they’ll be able to have a date with Catherine.

After finally getting a proper look at the gameplay that Catherine offers, it’s going to be interesting to see how gamers react to the demo and whether or not the game will live up to the hype it’s received thus far or if we’re all going to get burned by a hot blonde.
