In just its first week of sales, Catherine has already exceeded Atlus' "highest expectations." In fact, it boasts the biggest launch in all of Atlus' 20 years of publishing.
"Catherine has exceeded our highest expectations," said Atlus VP of Sales and Marketing Tim Pivnicny. "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."
No exact numbers were released, but Catherine has been on retail shelves since July 26 last week.
