Catherine looks to be a massive hit for Atlus. In fact, it has become the company’s biggest launch in their history. VP of Sales and Marketing, Tim Pivnicny, sent word to IGN letting them know of the good news. Like Tiny Tim on Christmas day, the joy emanating from Atlus was palpable.
“Catherine has exceeded our highest expectations. It released last week to tremendous critical acclaim and fan response… and continues to generate discussion amongst fans for its mature themes, engrossing subject matter, and frantic, challenging gameplay.”
While exact numbers were not provided at this time, Pivnicny did also mention that sales continue to grow strongly, hopefully bolstering the chances that a blockbuster, and properly localized, Persona title could be released in the not too distant future.
Our own review of Catherine went up earlier today, so check it out.
