Watch The Second Trailer For Catherine: Full Body

Last year, we found out that Catherine was getting re-released for PlayStation 4 and Vita. Titled Catherine: Full Body, publisher Atlus says it'll include new content, as well as a third love interest called Rin. Now, Atlus has released a new Japanese trailer showing off more of what we can expect.

You can watch it below. Note that the actual trailer begins around 0:40.

Aside from additions to the original story and its characters, Catherine: Full Body will also feature new puzzle content and more. An interesting tidbit is how Persona 5's Joker will be a playable character in DLC content, though it's unclear whether the DLC will have a Western release.

How Okami 2 Nearly Happened At PlatinumGames

Following Okami's release in 2006, it quickly amassed a cult following and critical reception. It's unique aesthetic and whimsical universe made it an award-winning success.

Although Capcom released a sequel on the Nintendo DS, titled Okamiden, fans have craved a "true sequel" from director Hideko Kamiya and PlatinumGames (which is made up of many key developers from Okami's original development studio, Clover Studio).

In the video below, journalist Liam Robertson does investigative reporting that uncovers the story behind how Okami 2 nearly came to be, and how PlatinumGames was spearheading the project.

Listen To Cuphead’s First-Ever Live Music Performance

During the Kensington Market Jazz Festival last night in Toronto, attendees were treated to something special: Cuphead's brilliant music. It was performed live by the original band that brought us the soundtrack.

Although composer Kristofer Maddigan couldn't make it, the band features nearly twenty musicians and much of the development team was in attendance. The band performs for about an hour, and lucky for you, it was all livestreamed. The YouTube video can be watched below. 

The performance is pretty awesome, with the band performing a slew of songs from the game and finishing up with the end credits song, with King Dice's voice actress Alana Bridgewater singing live.

Reader Discussion – Has A Spoiler Ever Ruined A Game For You?

Reader Discussion – Has A Spoiler Ever Ruined A Game For You?

SPOILER WARNING: This article is about spoilers. Specifically, it's about a time you learned about a crucial plot detail or twist before watching the moment for yourself and having a movie, series, or game ruined that part in the moment for you.

This is usually the part where I list an example of my own, but I don't think it's ever really happened to me. I don't mean that I've never been spoiled on a game: It happened to me with Red Dead Redemption, Undertale, The Last of Us, and most recently, God of War. But I never thought during any of these moments "Bummer. I wish I could have experienced this for myself."

I do think it alters the experience. But there's a certain kind of glee in knowing something is coming, and can inform earlier parts of the plot you may not have known if you hadn't known about a twist. As a result, I think spoiler culture is a bit too paranoid, and that people make way too big a deal about them most of time. I'm not going to ignore people's preference to avoid them, of course (I don't go around spoiling things for people out of spite), but I don't mind, say, overhearing spoilery conversations around the office here at Game Informer. My motto: If a story is so reliant on a twist that knowing it ahead of time ruins it, it's probably not all that great in the first place.
