Steamy video game Catherine sold a staggering 200,000 copies in its first week of release, setting an Atlus record. How did Atlus celebrate? With a cake, of course.
Atlus’ VP of Sales and Marketing, Tim Pivnicny, told IGN: “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.”
We thought Catherine was pretty good. In fact, I am wearing Vincent’s boxers as I type this.
