Catherine Is Biggest Launch In Atlus History

Many thought that the game wouldn’t sell well in the U.S. Some even believed that the game would never be localized for the western market, but Atlus’s strange love triangle/sheep dream, Catherine, has quickly become the company’s fastest selling title to date.

"Catherine has exceeded our highest expectations," Tim Pivnicny, Atlus VP of sales and marketing told IGN. "It is fitting, then, that Catherine can boast the largest launch in the 20-year history of Atlus, and continues to see strong sales at retail."

We’re happy to hear that a quirky, somewhat niche, title is getting it’s due. GI’s own Phil Kollar gave the game a 7, so it’s probably not for everyone. But what do you all think about the game? Are you happy with your purchase?
