Atlus Has No Plans for a US Catherine Release
I always hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it turns out that the action-horror title Catherine, which was released in Japan on February 16th, is unlikely to receive an English release.
According to a response to Beefjack, Atlus US had this to say:
Catherine is a Japan-only game and there are no plans for a NA release at this time. Sorry about that!
So there you have it, folks: if you want to play this twisted title, you’re either going to have to petition really hard, or bite the bullet and order an import copy (which would require the purchase of an additional import console if you opt for the Xbox 360 version). Keep in mind, the game is currently in high demand, so it might be a while before you receive your copy (I preordered early and still must wait until March 11th to receive my copy)
