Catherine Gets a European Release Month

Having launched in the US in October this year, Catherine has been a bit of a bit hit for Atlus. Being their fastest selling game to date with over 500,000 copies sold. Though not the case critically with it receiving middling to low reviews across the board as well as from me, I didn't think brilliantly of it.

Even with all the sales, Catherine has had a very hard time securing a release date in Europe, with only "Early 2012" being stated. Well we now have something more of a release window for the game! As Eurogamer reports, the game will be released in Europe in Feburary 2012, and will feature a *gasp* reversible cover to those that purchase it first!

If you ask me, I think it's a little too late for Catherine to make any substantial sales anywhere in Europe. The game sold well in America, but I imagine most people who want to buy it in Europe, managed to import it when it came out in America. Though this very reason is probably what took so long as I can imagine publishers not exactly being hasty to pick up an import favorite. Regardless, it looks like we're going to see it here eventually.
