Between nightmares, enjoy the Stray Sheep bar
In the adventure part of the game, you can freely move around the bar called the Stray Sheep. Time progresses gradually, and the customers frequenting the bar change accordingly. There are event scenes and people you can meet by spending time normally, so take your time.
Fitting for a bar, enjoy drinking and gain knowledge of alcohol!
By sitting down, you can order alcohol. In this game, wine has been added to the lineup. You can enjoy the setting of Catherine: Full Body with new alcohol knowledge to gain.
If you get drunk, you’ll gain an advantage during the game’s action puzzles. You can drink any amount of alcohol you want. Vincent will become increasingly drunk and start stumbling as he drinks more, but in actuality, it has the advantage where he’ll be moving faster during the nightmare stages! Challenge the nightmares after drinking as much as possible.
“Arrange Mode” added to “Super Rapunzel”
The Stray Sheep features the in-game arcade machine where you can play the mini-game “Super Rapunzel.” The stages are divided between “Standard” and “Arrange, ” for a total of 256 stages!

In the bathroom, there’s something…?
Look at sexy pictures that you can’t look elsewhere, wear the Nero Glasses, listen to the ideal voices… See all of these secrets in the private space that is the bathroom.
Erica – The popular waitress of the Stray Sheep bar (Voice: Junko Minagawa)
The waitress who works at the Stray Sheep bar where Vincent frequents. She’s popular with customers, serving them with a smile and a bright attitude. She was a classmate of Vincent’s in high school.
In a nice gesture, Erica brought in Rin to the Stray Sheep, since she had lost her memories.
She sometimes takes a harsh attitude with Vincent, who sometimes confides in her about cheating and his nightmares. She acts as a dependent old friend.
Boss – The woman-loving Stray Sheep owner (Voice: Norio Wakamoto)
The owner of the Stray Sheep bar. He stands quietly behind the counter and listens to what customers have to say. He arrived in town several weeks ago and opened the bar for some purpose.
“Cheating is in a man’s nature.”
He has a refined look, but he is actually very lustful towards women. Apparently, Erica is bothered by his sexual harassment.
What is the face hidden under the sunglasses? It’s said that his sunglasses are to hide from the problems he raised towards women in the past… What is the truth behind these rumors?
Trisha – The dramatic storyteller of Vincent’s nightmares (Voice: Junko Minagawa)
She has the role of story teller, with no direct relationship with the game’s story. She’s a mysterious person who lies in the shadows of various events. She talks to the player using different names. If you play every corner of Catherine: Full Body, maybe you’ll be able to unravel the mystery behind her!?
Trisha talks directly to the player as a story teller. But what of her true identity…?
She seems to be looking at the events of Catherine: Full Body from a bird’s eye view, as an overseer.
Appearing in Cafe Leblanc
Catherine: Full Body will launch on the PS4 and PS Vita in Japan on February 14, 2019. It will be released for the PS4 in 2019 in the West.
