The upcoming japanese title Catherine has created a lot of buzz the past couple of months. With the Persona Team taking it's first big leap into the realm of HD with sexy cover girl Catherine, it's no surprise why a lot of Atlus fans are frothing at the mouth. Beginning with teaser images, fans avidly waited for the next batch of info for the game's mechanics. Unfortunately Atlus decided to go about this reveal in a manner many found deceiving, setting themselves up for a huge wave of disappointment.

When gamers found out that Vincent, the main character, was originally an NPC in the much loved Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable the excitement grew exponentially. For weeks gamers speculated on the game, with assumptions it would follow the mechanics of previous Persona games with heavy dialogue options, turn based battles, and a thriving world to make decisions in.
Then something amazing happened. We were given a (possibly NSFW) trailer!
Incredibly enough, not a hint of gameplay was given! It didn't matter though, the game looked beautiful and gamers anticipated the best from Atlus, also did you see how sexy it looked! While some (including myself) speculated that this tease of the gameplay was only going to end in disaster, the rest of the gaming world waited patiently for more information, while also watching Catherine eat pizza on repeat.
Over the next few weeks Atlus began to tease for more information over on the Catherine website, with upcoming releases such as story, characters, and. . .GAMEPLAY?! Oh hell yes! (I won't get into the logistics of the story and characters, but you can catch up on it over on the wiki)
Releasing another trailer for the game, gamers were finally given a small glimpse of what the game might play like, but not really. At this point fans began to worry, was Atlus unsure of their game? Atlus knows they have an amazing story to build upon, but do they have the mechanics to keep the game fun?
Then this happened
What. The. F***? Is that a tongue coming out of it's. . . And is that. . .I don't even want to know.
