Is it a nightmare or a dream come true? A new test of Vincent Brooks’ morality is about to take the stage.

ATLUS today announced that Catherine: Full Body will be coming to the West.

  • Senpai Otaku

    PS4 VIta and switch are good choices for this game

    • ORION

      umm no bruh where do you get the switch from, the game was announced for ps4 & vita, that’s it

      • Senpai Otaku

        i now its confirmed for PS4 and vita.

        But i want it on switch too

        • ORION

          too bad, the world doesn’t spin around what you want

          • Senpai Otaku

            never say never kiddo. Anything is possible

          • Cypher

            They literally said PS4/Vita if they didn’t announce a version for Japan there is 0 to none chance for western release on switch.

          • Senpai Otaku

            I now but im the hopeful type. Plus its not like Catherine is an exclusive to Sony (if it is then they havent formally said so). It went from PS3 – PS4 and Vita. (i mean wow even the vita is getting it!) So if Atlus are bringing it to vita then the switch would be a great opportunity too imo

          • Cypher

            But that’s the thing if they brought it to Vita(Who is considered a failure by many)then on Switch who is success then I don’t know what to say to you dude.

          • Senpai Otaku

            Im not saying it’ll happen asap but maybe eventually.

          • Cypher

            Nah Atlus doesn’t do that when they announce a Version that’s the one they are staying with.
            Just Like with Og Catharine PS3/Xbox and those versions stayed no other ones later on Just like Odin Sphere Ps2 then a remaster On Ps4 or Dragon Crown Pro they announced the games for those platforms and that’s it.

          • Senpai Otaku

            Im also hopeful for a SMT X FE Port to the switch

          • DivineLion

            it’d be great to have SMT again for the playstation

          • Cypher

            Well that’s up to them SMT is Nintendo Platform only so they could do it but hardly since nothing came up since the trailer for smt 5.

          • Jerell Smith

            Have you not seen how Nintendo acts with censorship when it has any game with sexual themes/content? If the average Nintendo fan is going to continue to only buy Nintendo licensed games, and ignore third party sales, it’s just not worth the risk. Look at the Wii U for example.

          • Senpai Otaku

            yeah but the switch is different imo. it got doom and La noire which feature gore and death etc..

          • Jerell Smith

            Right, but that’s violence, not highly sexual content. I get what you’re saying though. I hope it does come to it tbh, cause I love Atlus and won’t be upset with them making more $$$.

          • Senpai Otaku

            Companies like them deserve the money especially when we are all throwing cash at companies like EA

          • Jerell Smith

            For sure.

    • MrSushi

      Atlus will not port a Atlus published game in Japan on other platforms

      • Senpai Otaku

        ?????????

        • Cypher

          It’s not that Atlus doesn’t want to Port to Switch It’s more Nintendo Still has that approval thing for games to be released on that platform they’ve gone soft with gore and violence (Doom)
          But with Trans characters and Balant nudity and topics of the game I’m pretty sure they didn’t allow it.
          And if Atlus JPN didn’t announce a Switch Port Atlus USA can’t because they are only DUB/Sub Division and creating copies for physical games they have no influence for porting games on Platforms.

          • BabyMagnum

            SMT?

          • Cypher

            SMT?
            What about it?

          • BabyMagnum

            It’s a M rated game that has been on Nintendo consoles for years, including the Switch.

          • Cypher

            Uhhhhh dude that’s not It Bayonetta has been on Nintendo Consoles and it’s M rated but that’s not the problem the problem is the topics and frontal nudity shown in them.
            Beyoneta is an exception since it’s a Nintendo Funded game and Nintendo has never been against M rated games they have been very against taboo topics on their platform like Trans characters hell even the OG Catherine wasn’t on Wii U and the system came 7-8 months after the game.
            Wii had Cod on their systems and that was when Nintendo was most stingy with their policies.

          • BabyMagnum

            So the topics in SMT are ok then? Sorry I don’t get or understand your logic. There are M rated games on Nintendo consoles both in the past and current and even though Tokyo Mirage session isn’t M rated it still had women with no tops on and obvious sexual jokes. Only the American version was heavily censored (I can’t even remember if it came here.)

          • Cypher

            Well there you have it that Nintendo Censorship is still a thing.
            And again Sexual jokes are totally different from Trans Character being one of the main characters.
            And If Atlus chose Vita over switch then It’s 100% something with Nintendo even more so because Western version gets censored to hell against Japanese version.
            And this is Japanese Version of the game,and games on Nintendo Platforms don’t get censored that much in Japan.

          • BabyMagnum

            Nintendo censored that game in the West not in Japan. They only changed one part in Japan and that was the easy access zipper crotch. The tongue in cheek bamry jokes about the woman working in a sexual magazine, the girls half naked, and the girl stripping are still in the original Japanese version. So I don’t see why Catherine full body wouldn’t be on a Nintendo console.

            “And if Atlus chose Vita over switch then It’s 100% something,”

            But they haven’t?????? There’s no confirmation on this. There isn’t anything with Atlus saying “yeah we are not putting it on the Switch every every.”

          • Cypher

            Well that’s the thing I’m telling you they don’t censor in Japan as much as in West.

            And they did Announe the platforms(PS4,Vita),when Atlus Announces a game for a platform that’s it that’s the platform no other platforms will be added,If you think AtlusUSA will Announce something you are mistaken like I said AtlusUSA department is not in Charge in porting they are only in Charge Sub/Dub and retail games selling.

            Look at new Shin Megami Tensei they said Switch and that’s It no other platforms.

          • BabyMagnum

            Here’s the thing. There was an article that said something about Nintendo which is why people are going nuts. Atlus changes their minds all of the time.

            “But with Trans characters and Balant nudity and topics of the game I’m pretty sure they didn’t allow it.”

            Here’s the thing. There isn’t any confirmation or denial of such a thing. What I’m saying is don’t say that Nintendo will deny this game just because of it’s elements when there are other M rated games not only in their company but also their system for years.

          • Cypher

            Funny thing is you think Nintendo has to accept this game if Atlus wanted to make this game for switch they already would announce it,but they didn’t.
            And not really I’ve been fan of their games for around 14+ years and i don’t think i ever saw them adding platforms to announced games once they announce the platform/s that’s it.
            They chose Ps4 And vita and that’s it.
            And i’m guessing you don’t know but Erica is a Trans character in Catherine.

          • BabyMagnum

            I’m keeping an open mind. Again I’m not saying that “Yeah they are going to put it on the Switch,” but I’m not going to say “Hell no they will never put it on the switch.”

          • Pit93

            It was not “only in the american version”. It was localized in the US and the rest of the west got that butchered version too (didn’t buy it of course).

          • BabyMagnum

            That’s why I said that I don’t remember if it came here or not. I didn’t buy it in the UK. I only recall the American version because my mates kept crying about it there.

          • Jerell Smith

            3DS and DS aren’t consoles, they are handhelds, and their handheld audience makes more diverse purchases than their console fanbase.

          • BabyMagnum

            Did you read any of the other posts before you decided to just post? The point was that they wouldn’t put this on the Switch because it’s M rated, which is silly because there are other M rated games on Nintendo products. Period. And one arguement is that due to nudity and sexual themes they wouldn’t do it, which is again silly because Tokyo Mirage sessions exist.

          • Jerell Smith

            Yes, I did. The M rated point is laughable at best, they’ve demonstrated that they are willing to go back to how they were during the Gamecube days where they weren’t too strict about what they put on their platform. Tokyo Mirage Sessions doesn’t have near as much as Catherine does.

            If it’s any consolation, I’m not opposed to Nintendo supporting it on there platform (I really want a sequel for Catherine, so the more devices that get it, the more $$$ Atlus/Sega makes), I just don’t think the chance is very high, that’s all.

          • BabyMagnum

            That’s not the point though. They still had games with nudity and sexual themes in it. I guess you haven’t played TMS but there was stripping and tongue in cheek sexual jokes. Not counting the naked woman. It would be different if they never never had this before but Nintendo has. Bayonetta, Doom, SMT, and Tokyo Mirage sessions.

            I’m not port begging nor saying that it’s going to happen but I don’t understand why people are dismissing such notions like it’s impossible just because it’s M rated.

      • BabyMagnum

        Uhhhhhh…

        Shin Megami Tensei?
