Asia Shippin' Out July 24-30: Catherine

Sheep-laden nightmares, godly power wielding, and a return trip to Kirkwall are on the agenda in this week's releases.

12 Comments

This week's titles will more unique in comparison to last week's cowboys and postapocalyptic settings. First up is the adventure game Catherine from Atlus, the team who made the Shin Megami Tensei Persona series. The game puts you in the role of Vincent who has to solve his women troubles in the day while escaping a nightmare-addled labyrinth in his sleep. GameSpot's recent review stated that the title has a compelling and personal story, as well as devious and challenging puzzles.

The PlayStation 3 version of Catherine will be making headway into Asia this Tuesday, with the regular and limited edition up for purchasing. Unfortunately, the Xbox 360 version of the adventure game will not be available in the region due to "coding issues" according to a representative at Softsource, the distributors of the game.

Up next is a "god game" called From Dust, the latest project from designer Eric Chahi (Another World, Heart of Darkness). The title pits players to either help or hinder indigenous tribes in a barren desert while manipulating the environment and fauna to further the game's narrative and objective. The game will be out this Wednesday for both the Xbox 360 and PC.

The first story-based downloadable content for Dragon Age II, subtitled Legacy, will be out for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. The expansion deals with Hawke's family history further and includes new environments, new monsters, and improved AI. Role-playing game fans can expect to see new content this Tuesday.

Capping off this week are ports of existing titles and content. The PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation pack, as well as the last episode of Back to the Future: The Game, will be up for download on the PlayStation Network.

Catherine and From Dust release here too, looking forward to both of those. Kill Team was fun as you want to play as the Heavy Bolter, other classes really didn't feel that playable in SP, and there's no online co-op, and it's short, but I got it anyways since that'll give me my WH40K fix until Space Marines arrives later this year.
