Catherine Full Body soundtrack streaming on Spotify & Apple Music

Director Katsura Hashino and character designer Shigenori Soejima of the Persona series development team wove together puzzle action gameplay with psychological horror and romance in Catherine.

Protagonist Vincent Brooks, tormented by the attention of two love interests, finds himself propelled into a series of dreams where he must climb a tower of retractable boxes. Composer Kenichi Tsuchiya contributes gothic horror pieces, inspired by the simplicity of chiptune music, to the in-game arcade console "Rapunzel," whose gameplay infects Vincent's fever dreams.

An expanded port, Catherine: Full Body, found its way first to the PlayStation Vita and, more recently, the Nintendo Switch console. The puzzle game soundtrack presents a melange of hip-hop and guitar rock produced by Shoji Meguro, mixing in arrangements of classical pieces by Chopin, Handel and Bach. The contrasting music styles mirror the protagonist's choice of whether to pursue the impulsive, untethered Catherine or remain loyal to conscientious Katherine.

Persona series co-composers Atsushi Kitajoh and Toshiki Konishi round out the sound staff, while L-VOKAL provides lyrics for the English-language opening rap song "YO." The Catherine soundtrack CD is available for shipping through CDJapan. The digital album "Catherine & Catherine Full Body Soundtrack Set," featuring music from both iterations of the psychological horror puzzler, is streaming on Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon Music.
