Deep Silver’s announced that it’s to bring Catherine to Europe.

The game will be formally localised into French, Italian, Spanish and German.

“Catherine is something new, fresh and exciting; unlike anything else in the gaming world – a unique mixture of genres. This agreement proves once again that games published under the Deep Silver label are not ‘more of the same’, ‘run of the mill’ productions,” said Deep Silver CEO, Klemens Kundratitz.

“Atlus is very pleased to collaborate with an experienced, passionate publisher like Deep Silver for the release of Catherine in Europe,” added Atlus CEO Shinichi Suzuki.

“Like us, they are dedicated to releasing interesting, unique entertainment content for their fans. They share our belief that Catherine’s unprecedented exploration of the psychology and horrors of commitment and relationships, its breathtaking visual design, and its frantic action-adventure/puzzle gameplay make for a thought-provoking, entertaining experience that cannot be missed.”

Despite an earlier release in Japan in January this year, with it coming to the US next week, no release dates have been confirmed for Europe yet.

“Catherine is getting her passport in order”

The announcement comes after a very, very cryptic tweet (via Siliconera), where Atlus’s US Twitter dropped this: “Catherine is getting her passport in order… #whatcouldthismean

German classification board, the USK, had also rated the game for Germany for just 360.

This comes after Atlus said yesterday it was in need of a partner to publish the game for Europe.

We actually have a copy coming from America next week. We might post something on it when we get it. In the meantime, watch footage of the US demo for it here.
