Atlus Says They Aren’t Promoting Catherine’s Western Release, and Then They Promote Catherine’s Western Release

Most of the time, I feel like most folks need to chill the hell out. Whoever is running PR at Atlus is not one of those people.

The internet has been abuzz this week with word that Atlus’ adult thriller Catherine would be getting a release on my side of the world, and rather than try to play mind games, they’re telling jokes. Check out this email I just got from them.

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA — MARCH 2, 2011 — Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today denied releasing new screenshots and a teaser trailer for Catherine, the upcoming HD mature romantic thriller game from the makers of Persona, for PlayStation┬«3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360┬« video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

“You can’t believe every little rumor you hear out there on the internets,” stated Crystal Murray, Atlus PR Specialist. “The internet’s a big series of tubes, and sometimes when everyone’s trying to download their emails at the same time, some of the stuff goes into the wrong tube.”

The publisher immediately followed this statement by releasing said assets.

I can appreciate this, particularly right at this moment because I’m in a terrible mood (worse than normal!). So I’ll spare the snark for a couple minutes. Here’s the trailer and a gallery and some box art.
