    Nah not like that, if i remember correctly it has a difficulty setting plus i played it through in one go and didn't have to replay a lot of levels to progress so it ain't that hard. There is bonus content tho wich is called the tower of babel if i remember correctly and that has a higher difficulty. That tower of babel thing btw is just puzzles and you don't need to play that to know the story

    Catherine is a great game. A weird one, but great nevertheless.
    I might give it another go if it'll really come out on PC! :P

    I hope this is a sign that persona 5 will be released on PC at some point. I am not sure why atlus wants to keep it sony exclusive. Do they get a certain incentives or something?

    Not only that, it uses the same Game Engine as Persona 5. More so the Graphics Engine but yeah. It would be nice to one day see a Persona 5 PC and Switch Port though.

    Would love a proper PC version too, but I went and bought a PS3 Slim just to play Persona 5 (paid 20 euros for a 500GB model with overheating issues, fixed it by changing the thermal paste), then modded it to install the game to HDD since the loading times from BD were terrible, but then the loadings were still very slow and the game looked like crap both on my 1440p monitor and 4K TV, so I decided to play it on the RPCS3 emulator, but I had to upgrade my CPU (and motherboard+RAM) for it to be playable. Now I'm more than halfway through it and it's an amazing game, but if a PC port comes out while I'm still playing the game or soon after I finish it I'll be kinda mad at myself; the news about the upcoming(?) improved version of the game is "bad" enough for my mental sanity...

    Everybody ignored my post about this yesterday. ^_^

    Happy to see this one coming to PC, but surprised it took so long. Hopefully Persona comes next no matter what, but it might actually depend on how well Catherine sells.

    no way atlus would be so stupid as to give us the original on pc when everyone else is getting a q job

    It's like a puzzle game, except the focus is on, well...two girls named Catherine and Katherine, with the girl you choose basically being the equivalent of the Law and Chaos routes in mainline SMT games, and more, how should I put it...titillating features!

    Yeah it wouldn't feel very "fair", ofc they have no obligation of sorts to release their work on PC but if we do get a straight port of the old version while current gen consoles get an improved version I'd be kinda disappointed, and I know I'm not the only one. Nothing wrong with the original, but it would be Atlus/SEGA throwing the proverbial "token bone" to distract us while console owners get a proper meal.

    I own the game on PS3. Played once for about 45 minutes. Haven't bothered to play it since. Can't be all that good...

    Source on this?
    The original Catherine is made with Gamebryo (same engine as Fallout 3 and Oblivion, so where are all the engine haters? :) ) and it specifically states on the Persona 5 wiki that Persona 5 has it's own engine, or well; "While Catherine used the third-party Gamebryo game engine, Persona 5 used a specially-created engine."
    Are you saying this is more than a port?

    I just bought this game on sale whomp whomp.... Oh wells! The games actually pretty fun and while I don't plan on buying the game again it's great that they're releasing it for PC after all this time.

    Just play it on RPCS3. Even mid-range computers get full speed at 4K on it.

    I guess we both have different pieces of info. If anything the rendering, and the assets are very similar.
