Catherine: Full Body PS4 demo out now in America and Europe

Try out some of the nefarious block puzzles ahead of the game's September release with this free demo.


Ready to try your hand at edging in Catherine: Full Body? By edging, I mean puzzles, of course.

There's now a free demo available for eager players to try out on the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 4 owners in North and South America and Europe. The demo is short but sweet, and does offer you several looks at the changes that will be coming to the game, such as the new Safety Mode, which lets you simply skip any puzzle you're having trouble with. You'll also get to play through as Persona 5's Joker, if you choose, via DLC.

If you haven't heard, the surreal puzzle is being reborn with the PlayStation 4 remake, and it looks like a real doozy. You'll follow protagonist Vincent's ascent through the tower he's doomed to climb every night to escape the murders coming for so many of his peers out in the real world. He's got to do this by pushing blocks back and forth to make a path to climb upward. It's not a pretty sight.

This remake will feature "bigger and better" content with new and improved visuals and gameplay, additional music tracks, better multiplayer options, and a selection of other content that's meant to make it a bigger experience in general. One of the biggest additions is new love interest Rin, voiced by Brianna Knickerbocker. She's a mysterious amnesiac character who shows up one day and makes a massive splash in his life, turning his already insane love triangle with the free-spirited Catherine and longtime girlfriend Katherine into an even wackier situation.

he game's new Arrange Mode adds different linked blocks to levels that you may have already memorized, with new techniques and strategies you need to use to figure them out. The new mode, additional new difficulties, and new stages added to the game's Stray Sheep Rapunzel mini game comes with over 500 puzzles now, so you'll be puzzling it out for quite some time.

And if you're here for the story and don't care so much for the puzzles, you can use Safety Mode, which lets you "auto-play" through the puzzles so you can just sit back, relax, and watch how things play out for Vincent. Now you don't have to worry about getting stuck on certain puzzles and can breeze right on through, if that's what you prefer, anyway. 

Catherine: Full Body is hitting PlayStation 4 on September 3 in North America and Europe.
