Catherine Sales Sets Record For Atlus

Catherine Sales Sets Record For Atlus

The latest title from Atlus has only been on North American shelves for a week now and it’s already setting a record for the popular company. Exact numbers have not been provided at this time but it is definitely safe to say that Catherine‘s launch is the biggest one that Atlus has seen in its twenty year history. Tim Pivnicny, VP of Sales and Marketing for Atlus, remarks:

“Catherine has exceeded our highest expectations. It released last week to tremendous critical acclaim and fan response, bolstered by the release of a demo a couple weeks prior, and continues to generate discussion among fans for its mature themes, engrossing subject matter, and frantic, challenging gameplay.

“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.”

From what I have played of the game, I have to be honest and say that this news doesn’t surprise me in the least bit. Catherine looks to be quite the knock-out and it shows that other gamers feel the same.
