Catherine: Full Body, the upcoming remaster of the 2011 title Catherine, has corrected a transphobic credit from the original game.

In the original game’s credits, the transgender character Erica was credited by her birth name, Eric Anderson. IGN has confirmed that this credit has been fixed in the Western release of Full Body.

The original version of Catherine credited the transgender character Erica by her birth name, Eric Anderson.

IGN also stated that some lines of dialogue about the character may have been changed as well, likely referring to some potentially transphobic lines regarding the character’s identity.

In addition, all of the game’s English voice actors (including Troy Baker as Vincent) reprised their roles to record new lines. Five new endings have also been added to the game.

Catherine: Full Body will be released in Western regions for PlayStation 4 on September 3, 2019. The remastered version was released in Japan for PS4 and PlayStation Vita in February.

His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Tim Schafer: No Plans for Brutal Legend 2, but ‘Never Say Never’

Published

Brutal Legend

Double Fine’s heavy-metal mashup, Brutal Legend, has gone some time without a proper sequel and Double Fine head Tim Schafer thinks there is still some waiting to do.

During a press Q&A session at E3 2019, Schafer was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the Jack Black-starring action-adventure game. Though Schafer says Double Fine would like to move on to something new first, a sequel may certainly still happen.

“That’s a fun universe, too, that I’d love to back to, but now we’ve been in sequel mode for a few years and it’d be nice to do something new…but never say never.”

Schafer commented on the possibility of a Brutal Legend 2 two years back, stating that fans will eventually see a sequel. During that same report, Schafer teased that Brutal Legend 2 would be an expensive game to make.

This most recent update at least reaffirms Schafer’s fondness for the series, even if the Double Fine team wants a break from sequels.

Brutal Legend released to generally strong reviews, with many praising its comedy and unique world.
