Catherine Exceeds 500k in Sales
Index Corporation, the company which owns Atlus, has seen a decrease in their losses this past fiscal year. This is thanks to its video game businesses and particularly the sales of Catherine which surpassed 500k. That’s over half a million sales, with over 200k of them being in the United States during the first week of release.
This is impressive for a title that strayed far from what one might expect from the gaming industry or even Atlus. Index also remarked that the Persona series saw strong sales this past year. Index had posted a revenue of $298.18 million last year which is down 34 percent year-on-year and losses of $58.6 million which is an improvement from the previous year’s loss of $96.36 million.
