Despite the fact that Atlus’ Catherine has received ridiculous amounts of coverage in the United States and other countries outside of Japan, apparently Atlus has zero plans at the moment to localize the game for a U.S. release. Atlus’ PR Agent told BeefJack the following information: “Catherine is a Japan-only game and there are no plans for a NA release at this time. Sorry about that!”
Considering the fact that Catherine sold more copies in Japan in its opening release than Marvel vs Capcom 3 on both systems it is a confusing choice to make considering the wide scale popularity that the game has seen overseas. Also considering the fact that Atlus released the game on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is strange in the first place due to the low popularity of Xbox 360 games in Japan.
