Hey, Sheep: Catherine sells 200,000 copies in one week photo



We heard earlier that Catherine broke all sales records for Atlus USA, but now a new tweet from the company lets us know just how well they did. As you can see, 200,000 copies of Catherine sold in the first week! That's a lot of sheep, dreams, and block pushing! The image above came with the following tweet from AtlusUSA:

This #Catherine cake is rated M for mmmmmm! #thiscakewillhaveashortlifespan

We loved the game. Everyone else I've talked to also does. I know that block sliding and two timing isn't for everyone, but I'm glad to see that enough have picked this up to let Atlus know that we dig this kind of thing.

Catherine helps Mega64 win the ladies over

The latest offering from Mega64 actually has one of the most straightforward set-ups. There are no props. No cameos. No other starring members except Rocco. It turns out that the subject matter of Catherine is weird enough on its own to produce an incredibly awkward series of encounters with Rocco playing a disturbingly forlorn nerd Love is over before it even began.more

Catherine gets a European publisher

While Atlus said this week that there are "no plans" to localize Catherine for Europe, Deep Silver has stepped up to say otherwise. The Dead Island publisher will be bringing everybody's favorite sex-themed puzzle-horror game to the PAL region. Yay! No word on when the game will arrive yet, but it's nice to know that it's coming. I mean, if you're into that sort of thing, you sorry little pervoid.more
