Catherine getting US release in July, according to now-removed GameStop listing

Atlus turned all of our emoticon's parentheses into open parentheses when it declared that it currently had "no plans" to release Catherine outside of Japan. A GameStop product page, however, apparently disagrees. The page, which has since been removed, briefly listed what appears to be an Atlus USA localization of the game, pegging it with a July 26 release date.

GameStop is both a notorious leaker of early information and notorious maker-upper-of-whatever-it-wants, so we can't say whether or not the listing is accurate. All we know is that we want it to be, because Catherine demands further investigation.

As we mentioned in our previous article, it makes little sense to us that Atlus would choose to keep a bestselling, multiplatform game exclusively to Japan. So will Catherine be released in North America and Europe? We don't know for sure, but we're inclined to think that it will, no matter what Atlus says to make our faces sad.

At the time of this article's writing, the GameStop product page was still cached by Google.

    It's simple really if they are releasing it on 360 you just know it's coming stateside, 'cuz 360 doesn't make much profit over there, so I think it's just a matter of time. As for Atlus saying it isn't coming over here to me it's just them playing mind games to hype it up.

    Ditto that, Atlus sent an email this morning, Catherine is coming! Catherine is coming (no innuendo intended)!

    I hope to God it gets released in Europe, I saw GR US FAP to it the other day, and I'm totally hooked. Seep-men FTW.

    Just say Ricitor's link, and it seems like all's good in the world.

    I can't wait for this,hope it gets a UK realse as well but if not at least I can import it
  • fffanatic1 - March 1, 2011 11:56 a.m.

    hopefully it comes out and is as difficult as it was in Japan.
  • Ricitor - March 1, 2011 11:38 a.m.

    Game have just been confirmed by Atlus USA

    If this were spotted next month, I'd say hoax, but who knows? The premise of moar money is always good enough, and a bunch of people inet rage (read us) can be persuasive (read begging and whining)
  • Letter11 - March 1, 2011 6:14 a.m.

    I want this a lot and I'm still not sure what kind of game it is exactly. I'll definitely pick it up on pre-order to encourage our friends overseas to keep sending games this way! Especially the crazy ones!
  • Mamudo - March 1, 2011 4:12 a.m.

    This is awesome.
  • Ironarm - March 1, 2011 4:04 a.m.

    Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god... Please let it be true. Please please please. That's just four days before my birthday. Do I smell a birthday present...?

    I thought if it was getting released in the west it would be some time in summer,july august-ish was my guess
  • Ricitor - March 1, 2011 3:35 a.m.

    GameStop has broken my spirit too many times. Until Atlus USA comes down from the heavens and says "yes, its coming," I aint getting my hopes up
  • Ultimadrago - March 1, 2011 3:29 a.m.

    Praise Him! Praise Him all the little children praising God! Praising God! That's my way of saying, "YEAH BOI!" This better not be a trick.

  • Crabhand - March 1, 2011 3:02 a.m.

  • Evanskichuck - March 1, 2011 3:01 a.m.
