Atlus today offered fans the chance to be a part of a future trailer for Catherine, the upcoming action-adventure/puzzle game from the makers of Persona, for PlayStation3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. In a video released today on YouTube, the publisher asked gamers to post direct video responses answering three heavy questions about commitment. Atlus will select answers from those submitted to appear in an official trailer.
“Catherine offers an unprecedented exploration of the psychology and emotion of relationships and commitment,” commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus. “A lot has been made of the game’s salacious content and of the nightmarish action-puzzle-platforming that ties the narrative scenes together, perhaps slightly overshadowing the game’s daring subject matter. By allowing fans to share their opinions about such poignant, relatable subjects, we believe it will shine more light on some of the heavy ideas Catherine brings to the table.”
Atlus is requiring that videos posted as direct responses for consideration in the promotion be 720p or better. Video responses will be accepted for consideration until 5:00 PM PDT on April 22, 2011. A comprehensive list of rules, including the promotion’s deadline, are available in the description of the YouTube video.
Catherine is currently scheduled to release in Summer 2011 for PlayStation 3 system and Xbox 360 system.
