Catherine not Japanese Exclusive after all?

On 02/03/09, in one of my final post on my former blog Nintentoad.com I said…

“I am a little ashamed to say it, and also slightly afraid of one of the many crazed Atlus fans out there finding me. But with the exception of Trauma Center I am not a huge fan of most Atlus games.”

Now almost exactly 2 years later as I type this Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey sits in my DS with Radiant Historia next to it. Persona 4 is sitting in my PS2; I have a shortcut to Shin Megami Tensei Imagine sitting behind the window I am typing this in. Several copies of Digital Devil Saga are on my eBay Watch List. Even Maken X is near my Dreamcast!

When I typed that 2 years ago, I had no idea that I would be one of those crazed fans in need of a time machine so that I may kick some since into myself. Needles to say I have been very much looking forward to Atlus latest release Catherine.

When Atlus told Beefjack.com that there were no plans for a US release much sadness ensued. But now it appears that there is a bit of hope. A listing on Gamestop.com was found (and promptly removed) stating a 7/26/11 US release date. And to make matters even more interesting Beefjack.com is saying “A source has also told us that Atlus is planning an official announcement tomorrow.” Cross fingers and toes now! (WARNING: Toadink holds no responsibility for cramping toes and fingers from prolonged crossing)
