"Sexiest publisher around," Altus today has announced the pre-order bonus for its upcoming action-adventure/puzzle/sexy simulator game, Catherine.

Packed in a collectible pizza box from the story's central bar (Stray Sheep), the Catherine "Love is Over" deluxe edition includes, along with the game itself, a replica pair of Vincent's polka dot manic nightmare boxers, Vincent's "Empty Hearts" T-shirt worn by Catherine in the game, and a pillow case sporting an alluring picture of Catherine similar to the one he carries under his arm as he runs from the terrors that pursue him.  This offer is extremely limited so anyone who wants in on it should seek out their nearest videogame pre-order-taking establishment as soon as humanly possible to reserve their copy.

Altus has also revealed a Catherine Sound Disc and Art Book that will be a free extra to anyone who reserves either the standard or deluxe edition.  This offer includes a 36 page full color art book and is packed with the beautiful character designs of artist Shigenori Soejima and an 11-track music CD with musical themes of the game remixed by composer Shoji Meguro.  This too is extremely limited, so fans are urged to reserve their copy now.

Catherine is set to come out on July 26, 2011 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.  The "Love is Over" Deluxe Edition's MSRP will be $79.99.

ATLUS REVEALS SEXY CATHERINE "LOVE IS OVER" DELUXE EDITION, PRE-ORDER BONUSES; RELEASE DATE SET FOR JULY 26

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- MAY 2, 2011 -- ATLUS, generally considered the sexiest publisher around, today revealed pre-order bonus items and a limited run deluxe edition for Catherine, its upcoming action-adventure/puzzle game from the makers of the award-winning Persona series, coming this summer for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system (PS3™) and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. An unprecedented exploration of the pleasures and horrors of love, Catherine's core themes--those of free will, of the delicate nature of relationships and the choices we make within them, marry perfectly with the intense, terror-filled gameplay that serves to accurately reflect Vincent's growing sense of anxiety.

Packaged within a collectible pizza box from Stray Sheep (a bar central to the game's story), the Catherine "Love Is Over" Deluxe Edition consists entirely of items directly from or inspired by the characters and game world. Along with the game itself, fans will receive: a pair of polka dot boxers like the ones worn by Vincent during his manic nightmares, Vincent's "Empty Hearts" T-shirt worn by Catherine in the game, and a pillow case decorated with an alluring image of Catherine, a nod to the pillow tucked under Vincent's arm as he frantically races to escape the terrors that pursue him. The "Love Is Over" Deluxe Edition will only be built to pre-order demand and will not be available in large quantities; interested fans are advised to reserve theirs at participating retailers as soon as possible to avoid bitter, bitter disappointment.
