A Dozen New Catherine Screens Focus on Vincent's Bar Life

By Chad Awkerman

January 25, 2011

Catherine got a dozen new screens today, which gives us a lot more detail into the bar that Vincent frequents. It looks like…a bar. So, yeah, that’s pretty much it. Oh, but I must point out a couple things. Did you notice that both the text on the TV and the menu board behind the bartender is in English? That’s right, you know where I’m going with this.

Let’s not get our hopes up too quickly. I’m not entirely sure where this story takes place, it could be in an English-speaking country, thus the English writing used in the backdrop segments of the game. But, the more optimistic side of me thinks that this could be hints that Atlus intended from the start to localize Catherine for Western consumption. Only time will tell. But, for now, you have some screens to look at below!
