So, I've been slowly trying to translate bits and pieces of the venus mode artbook and figured I'd share some interesting trivia from the interview at the end of the book with Soejima and Hashino:
- They both say that one of the main influences behind 2 of the main characters (Catherine and Vincent) is the film Buffalo 66.
- One of the foundations for Catherine's initial appearance was Christina Ricci's Layla in Buffalo 66.
- The main character of the game, Vincent got his name and a similar appearance from the main actor and director of the film, Vincent Gallo.
- If you've seen Buffalo 66 or just simply look up the basic plot and aware of all of Catherine's story, there are actually quite a few parallels there between the 2 pairs of characters in the…

Finally making a comeback from my allergy and getting back on track. :) I hope you all are enjoying your holidays!
So unfortunately, my first blog post on this wiki is to report that I'm sick due to an allergic reaction from food prepared by my client's relative last night. :P I really wanted to jump in and interact with more of the "Catherine" community right away, but unfortunately things at work are a little complicated right now.
Hopefully I can come back after getting over this and sorting things out.
Happy Holidays everyone!
Since a lot of people seem to like Jonny Ariga a lot, why not write a fanfiction about him? If you do, may I make a suggestion? Here's what I think would happen:
After Vincent and Katherine got married, Jonny continues his search for his soulmate. Along the way, he meets Catherine and accidentally fallows her to the Underworld. And now Jonny and Catherine must work together to stand up to Catherine's father. And also, Jonny and Catherine start to grow closer to each other.
Dear fellow Catherine Wikias:
I am in the process of making a catherine card game, but I'm trying to figure out how the game would be played. If anyone has suggestions, let me know. Thanks. -BattyMcFatWiki
More details of the European version of Catherine (coming Feb 2012) are coming out, including info on the Deluxe Stray Sheep edition. Check out the Editions article for more info and pictures, and keep checking back for more details! News
Andriasang reports that Index Corp. has finally released official sales figures for Catherine, and it's incredibly good news. The sales are around 500,000 copies worldwide, and obviously don't include Europe, where it hasn't been released yet. Keep spreading the word about this awesome game!
I've been compileing a list of techniques that are not taught in game. It would be apriciated if anyone can add some of their own. I hope to expand that list so at the very least it has its own page. Feel free to add more or make videos for the ones already there.
Thanks to everyone for contributing and visiting! Have you already beaten Catherine and are interested in the backstory, or more details on all the characters? The Characters section has extensive write-ups and analysis, while the newly built spoiler section is dedicated to all the mysteries and questions of the game. Feel free to add your own theories and thoughts!
Hey, guys. I was just wondering about the difficulty level of Catherine and was it too hard for you? I found it kinda easy on normal and I've yet to try it on hard. The only problem that I had was facing the final boss and that's it. How about you?
Hey, guys. It's been a few days since I've been on here. I'm having issues with my computer and need to have it repaired. I've noticed the pages added and I was wondering what happened?
IGN reports that Catherine has broken a record for Atlus, and is the biggest launch in their entire history. No sales figures, but obviously the game is doing very well, thanks to all of its awesome fans!
...several times, I'm wondering what everyone's favorite ending is, and why? Spoiler Alert, for those who haven't completed the game.

Hey, guys. I just added the page "Dumuzid" to the wiki. This concludes the bosses, but I still need to edit them (once I am done with the testing of a few more bosses) and add pictures.
The Catherine boss is now up, but needs a few "tweaks" from here and there and some pictures for the page. I will edit more once I beat the boss and study her techniques. Hed Rarlow 06:59, July 31, 2011 (UTC)
Hey, guys. I just added a new page to the bosses. Check it out and leave some feedback on how it looks! Edit it if you see any mistakes, please.
How's it going, guys? I've been off all day, and after playing some of "Catherine" I have new things to add.
I've noticed the cut back on a few pages and I was wondering what they were? I would like to know what the pages were? Thanks! Hed Rarlow 02:23, July 31, 2011 (UTC)
Hey, guys. My apologies for flooding your inboxes with the wiki updates, but I saw that the walkthrough needed some stages/levels that need new pages and I'll get right on that after I complete the bosses (which I am taking a break from) and make a few more "tweaks" here and there. I'll make sure to create a link to the walkthroughs and bosses!
Hed Rarlow 10:51, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
It's been a long day and I'm beat. I'll create new pages tomorrow and finish up any introduction that was left out from any of the bosses.
Alright, guys, so here's the things I'm doing for the wiki. I'm currently adding new pages for the bosses and introductions for each and every one of them accompanied by the attacks and trivia. If you can help edit or provide pictures I will be thankful! I will continue to be an avid contributer to this wiki!
I'm new to editing in the wiki pages, but I am determined to help since I have love for these video games I play. I'm not doing so well on pictures for bosses for "The Child" and "Fist of the Grudge". If anything, leave something at my talkpage!
The good folks at Kotaku are quite enchanted by Catherine's ample bosom (or more specifically, Vincent falling into said bosom) and have created a special photo gallery entirely devoted to parodies of Catherine's cover art.
Have a look at it right here .
Almost 100% of the guide sections are fully up now. Please visit and enjoy the guides on the Landings, Confessionals, Day 1 and on, Phone Mail, Bosses and more! Thanks to everyone who's been visiting and editing!
The game is out today! Though a lot of the information won't be up until tomorrow, you can still reference Scoring information, maps and videos for the Nightmare Stages, maps and videos for Rapunzel, and Achievements. Check back soon for even more information, and enjoy the game!
The hour is nigh, and I'm wondering who this community is rooting for, Catherine with a C or with a K? The proverbial dark versus light? Does life end, or begin at marriage?

I've finished most all the content for the wiki I can do without the game being released, so there won't be many changes between now and Tuesday. I have guides and articles for most everything pre-written and ready to post, once I can fill in the english responses. I will upload these starting Wednesday morning, when I start playing. Feel free to post or edit or comment on things until then - thank you all for visiting, and I hope the wiki helps you!
