Previously teased as a “surprise announcement” at the Catherine: Full Body E3 2019 themed after-party, Atlus showed off a trailer confirming the “Persona 5 Character “Joker” & Phantom Thieves Commentary Set” and “Playable Character Set” (with Catherine: Full Body characters) as downloadable content for the English release.
Atlus has confirmed that the DLC will be available as part of the “Catherine: Full Body Digital Deluxe Edition,” and as a standalone release after the game’s launch on September 3rd.
Joker was released as DLC in all first-print editions of Catherine: Full Body in Japan. He will be playable in the Babel (survival) and Colosseum (multiplayer) game modes. Selecting Joker will have Persona 5‘s “Life Will Change” play as the background music, with the phantom thieves commenting as he climbs.
Completing stages as Joker will also unlock scenes featuring the phantom thieves interacting, with English voice-over.
Gameplay video from the Japanese version can be seen below.
Previously, a glimpse of the English trailer had been mistakenly shown in an E3 2019 presentation for Catherine: Full Body via Shacknews.
The Persona 5 DLC was previously confirmed for English release through the digital pre-order page for Catherine: Full Body, along with the “Playable Character Set,” Catherine “Ideal Voice Set,” and “Horn-Rimmed Glasses.”
Catherine: Full Body was released on the PS4 and PS Vita in Japan on February 14, 2019. It will be released for the PS4 on April 25, 2019 in Asia and Korea, and September 3, 2019 in the West.
