Catherine Sales Set Atlus Record
Puzzle title is the biggest launch game in the publisher's history.


A week after its release, Catherine has already become Atlus' biggest launch title ever. The game has shipped the most units at launch of any Atlus game in the company's history.

"Catherine has exceeded our highest expectations," said Tim Pivnicny, VP of Sales and Marketing at Atlus, in a statement given to IGN. "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."

Atlus could not provide exact sales numbers at this time. Catherine launched in North America on July 26 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Re: Catherine

Picked this game up used a couple weeks ago for $19 and have been playing it off and on since, I actually really like the puzzle play mechanics - a mix of twitch and thought is always fun. My only complaint is the over-emphasis on how difficult the game is, it warns you when you start a new game on Normal. I'm only on Stage 4 (Day 4?) but its been pretty much a breeze, but a lot of fun no less.

Not a huge fan of the interactive drama bits, but the story itself is entertaining. Love the puzzles.

Re: Catherine

Where? I've been waiting two years for it to get added to the IGC and they keep passing it over.

Re: Catherine

I see it for $24.99 pre-owned. Was it a sale last week or are you one of those folks who don't count Rewards Zone certificates as actual costs?

Re: Catherine

Just $4.99 sticker price on the shelf. I thought it might have been a mistake or something. Also, Canada but our pre-owned prices are usually higher up here. Pure luck, I guess.

Re: Catherine

This was in my top 10 of the generation. I would love to be able to play it again. Hopefully it does show up on Plus soon.

Re: Catherine

I picked it up from Newegg sometime last year for $10. Still need to crack it open. I do remember enjoying the demo though.

I just bought this. Catherine Full Body is on sale now for $24.99 at Best Buy. I'm excited to play it. I really enjoyed Persona 5.

Re: Catherine

I've been interested in this for years now, and keep putting off getting it. Are there any "twitch" gameplay sections? My old man reflexes can't do that anymore.

tks

It's nothing like Bayonetta. It's a Puzzle game/platformer combined with weird Japanese dating sim type stuff.

Yes. The puzzles in the final third of the game require significant reflexes. But you can always drop it to easy.
