Voice actress Michelle Ruff reveals that Catherine has had some animations modified to match her performance, but she had to "match basic timing" as well.
The team is working hard to fully localise the original Japanese title, a horror puzzle adventure. Catherine is due this summer on Xbox 360 and PS3.
It's a rave hit in Japan and Atlus will be publishing the western release.
“I had to match basic timing on scenes but my Katherine’s mouth was being animated to my performance in some of those scenes,” said Michelle Ruff. “In some of them, she was animated already and I had to sync my performance.”
It's crucial you feel connected with the game's characters in Catherine so lip-sync work is vital for the development team. Actors Troy Baker and Laura Bailey take up the other spotlight roles in the English version of Catherine.
