Catherine is one of those games that isn’t like the majority of stuff coming out today and because of that you had to feel like it with either be welcomed as a refreshing change of pace or it would bomb miserably. Atlus is happy that it wasn’t the latter as Catherine was their biggest first week launch in their history. The game was notable for its odd gameplay and its sexually charged content.
In classic Atlus fashion they announced the news via a tweet saying “This #Catherine cake is rated M for mmmmmm! #thiscakewillhaveashortlifespan”, along with a pic. Congratulations to Atlus.
