Default Catherine Confirmed for US Release

I remember reading that a lot of people were wondering if this game would ever leave Japan and come to the US and it was recently confirmed by Atlus that Catherine would indeed be heading to US PS3's. The game looks and sounds awesome so this is definitely good news for me. Now hopefully we get news of Tales of Vesperia.

Nice, This is the quickest Atlus has taken a Japanese to NA release. So that date for July is looking good now.

*Update*
Amazon has it up for pre-order, to be released on July 26th

That Great News for the US!
But what the about europe? And I bet you Australia will have another game banned.
You think Atlas will release a soundtrack or an art book or something extra as a per-order bonus?

The turnaround for Catherine is actually borderline ridiculous, and would suggest this might not only have been planned from the start but also that Atlus USA could very well have been working on a localization prior to the game's Japanese release. And if that's the case it might portent good things for quick turnaround on exciting future Atlus releases like, umm, I don't know, PERSONA 5!

It's very unlikely that there will be specific localizations for European countries; many Atlus games never make it to Europe in specifically localized forms, and I have several friends in Europe who spend way too much time on the Atlus USA forums lamenting this fact, the poor souls. The question of an Australian banning is pretty pertinent - can one import such things there, or would that be illegal?

And as for pre-order bonuses: Atlus USA always gives pre-order bonuses, and Catherine is unlikely to be any different.

You've never bought an Atlus when their first released, huh?

Persona 3 came with an Artbook and a soundtrack (FES didn't come with anything... I think P3P had a keychain... I'm not sure ) . Persona 4 had two different kinds of Special Editions, the Persona remake had a soundtrack, Devil Summoner 2 had a plushy. The recently released Radiant Historia had a small soundtrack... And that game is basically off the radar completely. Most of their games have a Special edition/Pre-order bonus of some sort. At least for the first print run. So, Catherine will most likely have something... Maybe a Catherine dakimakura.

Oh, as for my response to it being released:

Great news!! Adding it to my list of must play games of the year. I'll wait to hear what bonuses their offering before I pre-order.

Damn Atlus, denying any plans and then announcing that you're localizing it within the same week? I love this so much. I'm hoping for at least an OST packaged with the game. The menu theme is catchy enough for me to want one.
