News From Atlus, Catherine In English And SMT Devil Survivor Remake
Suddenly I become a fan of Atlus, a Japanese game creator which is famous for its RPG, after playing Persona 3. Its not my first RPG or even the first Atlus games that I've played. But Persona 3 give me a starting point to become a fan of other upcoming Atlus games. Like Catherine and Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor.
Catherine is a Action, Survival Horror, Puzzle game. Yeap, Atlus seems to find a way to put all of them together and the result, a game that reeks of sex. That what makes the game good. The game released in Japan on 17 February 2011 and the US version will come out on 26 July 2011.
The main gameplay of this game is the puzzle. You stack and push a block to make a path to your goal. Easy right? But Atlus put some Survival Horor into the puzzle. You're now being chased by a giant hand with a fork to stab you if you're too slow. So you have to be hurry on your hand and your head to crawl your way to the goal.
Oh yeah, the "reek of sex" part, huh? Its the cinematic storyline. So the guy here, the main character, meet a girl. There is this mysterious aura about this girl, and also a seductive one. The main character always have this dream, about the girl and him trying to crawl out of a tower of puzzle. By the same time, he tries to choose between his recent girlfriend and this new mysterious girl.
The demo is out now, you can tryout the game if you have a PS3 or Xbox 360.
The other game is Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor. The game actually released in NDS back in 2009, but this time it will be released in Nintendo 3DS with Overclocked version.
There's not much info on the Overclock other than the Full Voiced dialog and extra stages.
So we can assumed that this game is similar in graphic and gameplay. SMT Devil Survivor is a Tactical RPG, where you control the battle screen with those square grid. I haven't finished the game yet, but I liked this game because it somewhat similar to Persona series.
Yes, I do played the game because it has the name Shin Megami Tensei, just like Shin Megami Tensei Persona. It also have the same music composer and director. But unfortunately, I'm not a fond of Tactical RPG. But I have to play them, just for the story, not the gameplay.
Overclocked version for Nintendo 3DS will out this July.
