The new character's name is Rin, and she plays piano at the bar protagonist Vincent regularly hangs out in, with an "honest and gentle" personality. Brand-new features have also been added; the most notable being the change on difficulty settings, which can now be increased or decreased depending on whether you want a challenge or you're just here for the story. For the uninitiated, the game follows a man who's deathly afraid of commitment who ends up cheating on his fiancee Katherine with a woman he meets at his regular bar named Catherine.

While Catherine: Full Body and Project Re Fantasy may be of different genres, the developers behind their making are together as one. The game managed to make its way to EVO, the world's biggest fighting game tournament, where it generated a lot of buzz. A PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita remake is now in development, the company revealed this week, with updated visuals and entirely new content planned for the game. The online battles, meanwhile, were added as a response to the game competitive community that unexpectedly developed around Catherine.
