My brain might be dead, my eyes tired and all that stuff, but these news struck me like a lightning bolt!
Yes, there is a reason why I did not believe a word of that 'no plans for the west' crap some unknown site posted as news from Atlus. Hah! Take that!
However, you should not take this for granted yet.
Wait for an official response from Atlus.
This is just meant as a glimpse of hope for those who fell for that fake article!
With Atlus USA starting to drop hints about a possible Catherine localization, it’s looking more and more likely that some sort of official announcement is to be expected in the near future.
While we wait for that, maybe a helpful Siliconerite that works at EB Games can shed a little more light on the subject. A reliable reader reported in yesterday to let us know that EB Games have Catherine pegged for a July 26th, 2011 release in their database.
Furthermore, Gamestop had a listing for Catherine on their website a while ago, too, that was subsequently taken down. However, the page still exists in cached form and also lists the game’s release date as July 26th. Whoops!
On a side note, Nintendo only sold about 400.000 3DS thingies yet.
Seems like it doesn't pay off to take small steps in development these days... :3
