Announcing sales numbers through press releases is boring. When it comes to Catherine, Atlus has decided to use a different info delivery method: cake.

We already knew that Catherine was the best launch ever for Atlus, but we didn't have hard numbers. According to the picture below (tweeted by AtlusUSA), Catherine sold over 200,000 copies in its first week. That even beats out Demon's Souls, which debuted with 150,000 units during its first month on the NPD charts.

You can read our review of Catherine here, or read an editorial that discusses the game's breed of difficulty here. Unfortunately, I can't give you a link that leads to you eating an actual piece of this delicious-looking cake (click to enlarge):
