Atlus has announced a remake of Catherine, titled Catherine: Full Body, is coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Catherine: Full Body is being developed by Studio Zero, the new internal development team at Atlus that's working on a role-playing game codenamed Project Re Fantasy.

According the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine (via Ryokutya2089 and Hachima Kikou), in addition to Catherine and Katherine, Catherine: Full Body will feature a third girl named Rin. A pianist hired at the Stray Sheep bar, Rin is a more gentle and unassertive character whose role in the narrative will be split between Catherine and Katherine.

Catherine: Full Body will again star Vincent, who’s caught in the middle of several very different women named Catherine. In the daytime, he wrestles with his desires and temptations; at night, while he’s asleep, he is transported to a mysterious, sheep-filled hell where he must solve puzzles as fast as he can — or die.

Where Catherine: Full Body switches things up from the original is when it comes to both the challenging puzzle system and the story itself. There will be new difficulty levels, according to early details from Famitsu, as well as new mechanics to complicate the block-switching puzzles. There will also be online multiplayer battles in the PS4 and Vita version, unlike the original, single-player release.

Other new additions to Catherine: Full Body include new endings and story episodes, as well as a large array of difficulty options, a new block moving mechanic, an online battle feature, and PS4/Vita cross-save support.

The "Full Body" subtitle comes from its connection to wine, symbolizing a richer experience for players. While Atlus has yet to announce a release date or price, development is said to be 50 percent complete.
