NIS America has revealed a fall 2023 window for the PlayStation 5 release of FuRyu’s The Caligula Effect 2. The company aired a trailer for the announcement:
The second entry first debuted in 2021 on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, followed by a 2022 launch on PC via Steam. The game can be played without much knowledge of its prequel, The Caligula Effect: Overdose. To grasp key references and gain a better understanding, it probably wouldn’t hurt to read or watch a summary of the first.
Caligula 2 features engaging turn-based combat and a superb soundtrack. Here at RPGFan, we had a great experience with the follow-up and rated it higher in our review than we did its predecessor, which didn’t have the same reception. As a refresher, check out the overview below by NIS America.
Overview of The Caligula Effect 2
A virtuadoll named Regret has created the world of Redo in order to save people from their past regrets.
While this world is false, the peace people find here seems real enough.
However, this “paradise” is shaken to the core when a virtual idol named χ breaks into Regret’s virtual reality and restores a high school student’s memories of the real world.
In order to escape Redo, χ and a number of like-minded students form the Go-Home Club, a resistance group that seeks to shatter the illusion that is Redo against the will of Regret and her enforcers, the Obbligato Musicians.
If you’re keen to start on this series and you own a PS5, it’s worth noting that The Caligula Effect: Overdose is arriving on that at the end of the month, May 30th. Pre-orders are up for both games on the NIS online store.
The Caligula Effect 2 is now available on Switch, PS4, and PC. Fall 2023 is the current release window of the PS5 version. Stay tuned to RPGFan for more on RPGs rereleasing on the current-gen platforms.
