Atlus hosted today a recruitment livestream to entice new developers to join the budding Studio Zero led by Persona 5 Director Katsura Hashino, and it included some really interesting footage.
We get to see Catherine‘s character Trisha introducing and concluding the livestream. While the broadcast was mostly about recruiting developers for the studio’s new fantasy JRPG, at the end Trisha wonders when her turn is going to come, and if there are enough people interested in her, joking about being the new heroine next time. After that, she is surprised to hear that there are talks about her next job.
Of course, this could very well be just a playful use of the character, but on the other hand, it could be a tease of something bigger. It’s hard to say, especially considering that this livestream targeted developers, not the studio’s fans.
You can check out the video below, and if have never heard of Catherine, you can read our review from all the way back in 2011.
The game was a completely original IP released for PS3 and Xbox 360, starring the dream team composed by Katsura Hashino, Shoji Meguro and Shigenori Soejima, which incidentally is also at the forefront of Studio Zero. Many have wondered why the game never got a sequel or at least a remaster or a re-release on PC.
Could something new really be coming? I honestly don’t dare holding hope.
