Catherine to Flirt With Aussie Gamers

QVS picks up (distribution rights to) Catherine.

Quirky Japanese games have a hit-and-miss relationship with the Aussie market, and, more often than not, local fans have to turn to overseas sellers to get hold of them. Thankfully, that won't necessarily be the case for Catherine, as local software distributor QVS Entertainment has announced that it will be distributing the game in Australia.

QVS has only recently signed on to distribute Catherine, so at this stage it's unable to announce an official release date for the game in Australia. Unfortunately, you'll have to hold tight for that one, but at least it'll see an official Aussie release.

Catherine is a critically acclaimed game from the studio behind the Persona franchise, and it's quite unorthodox. Players step into the shoes of Vincent, a man who is scared of committing to his long-term girlfriend and finds himself in a rut when he wakes up next to another woman. The game deals with adult themes and alternates between platform puzzling and adventure-game-style sequences, so it might not be for everyone.

@robertwarnes91 Yeah, I'm still waiting on a localized version of Snatcher and Policenauts for the NA PSN from MonkeyPaw Games. But, Konami is being an ass about it.

@Brokenhope69 Your DP is probably the most badass scene from Snatcher.

Well, the North American port was announced on March first and you bet your life I was at GameStop the same day and pre-ordered it. It was a 50/50 chance of me loving it. Turned out to be the best gaming decision I've ever made because it is now my all-time favorite game. The previous holder of the 'all-time favorite' title was Snatcher, and it's had the title since 1996!! So that should tell you how much I love this game.

@Night_Ryda Of course (not) @Twin-Blade you are correct Sir that sucked the 360 version was region locked and I was joking in my comment the more people who buy this game would be better for the whole industry and every one deserves the chance to play it. peace.

@Ivory-Dynamite 360 owners are all non-believers?

Real Catherine fans have already imported it. Non believers don't deserve this game.
