Only Korea Gets Catherine Towels

By Spencer . June 21, 2011 . 1:44am

This might come off as a surprise, but Korea tends to get Atlus titles released on PlayStation platforms before North America. We’re not talking about Japanese versions, these games are localized with Korean text.




Take Catherine as an example, which comes out on June 24. Atlus is packing first run copies with the sound disc and art book. Reserve Catherine at select retailers and you get an extra bonus – a Catherine towel.




Catherine comes out in North America on July 26… in a pizza box with Vincent’s boxers if you opt for the limited edition.

    Wut about North Korea and dear Leader?

    • SolidusSnake

      Dear Leader should be a summon in the next MegaTen game :3

      • I’m imagining something along the lines of a boss battle, maybe a hidden boss with an attack that can enslave you and prevent you from loading your game, ever.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Well it’s been long rumored Dear Leader has a thing for tall American blondes to go along with his love of decadent yankee films, so he indeed might just have a copy (or two, or two thousand) reserved somewhere.

  • how DARE those Koreans.

  • Korea hidoi!

  • I’d love to wrap that around my waist. ;)

  • Aoshi00

    Well, while the towel is cool, having Catherine on the pillowcase is slightly less embarrassing to use, the towel would be more like a collectible poster that you can clean :).. 

  • Well, North Korea is best Korea. *Shrug*

  • Definitely would prefer this edition to the US one…but why not Tobias instead?

    • Ren

      Think about it. You know the answer is inside of you.

      • If we can have pillows with DRRR characters and Bleach characters, then Im baffled why we cant have towels of Catherine characters.

  • shy_mel

    Korea, land of the pre-order towels.

  • Genjo

    blah the tower is nice to have but i would take pillow case i can take it anywhere i go :P

  • Catherine can dry me off any day ;)

  • vivaluis59

    i never even thought about a towel!…. i want one… 

  • Oh wow. I’m going to Korea on the 27th too. I wonder if the voices will be in Korean, since I don’t think I’ve seen any korean localizations recently with actual korean dubs.

  • Covnam

    I’d prefer if my Deluxe Edition came wrapped in that towel instead of a pizza box.

  • EDIT: I need to read…not just look at the towel haha. (I wish it were KR dubbed though.)
    Also, I’m real glad I pre-order my Deluxe Edition~ Can’t wait to go pick it up

  • Why is the Sony Computer Entertainment logo on that? 

    Is SCEK publishing the game in Korea?

    No Xbox version over there?

  • PrinceHeir

    the towel might be nice for some relaxing “dry” up sessions :P

  • Why? :( 。・゚゚・(≧д≦)・゚゚・。 I Want It. I Want Towel
