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!
As always, we’d recommend that you don’t think of Gamestop/EB’s listing as a date set in stone that won’t ever be changed. That said, a summer timeframe when game releases tend to slow down would make sense for a game like Catherine.
A big, cheesy slice of pizza to the awesome reader who sent us his findings. You know who you are!
