Catherine sells 78K

Those 200,000 copies of Catherine that Atlus celebrated with a cake not too long ago? Not “sold,” it turns out, but “sold-in.” As in, sold to retailers, not to consumers.

The latest NPD data reveals that only 78,000 copies of those 200K actually reached the hands of gamers in July.

Regardless, the puzzler remains the publisher’s most successful launch in its 20-year history.
