Caligula 2 Announced
During this week’s Japanese Nintendo Direct presentation, publisher FuRyu announced Caligula 2. The game is a follow-up to Caligula, which was released in North America and Europe as The Caligula Effect and later received an enhanced remake titled The Caligula Effect: Overdose. Caligula 2 will launch in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on June 24, 2021, with no announcement made regarding a potential western release.
Caligula 2 features a similar premise to the previous game, with players controlling a student in a virtual academy looking to return to the real world. The game features a brand new cast with a new generation of both the Go-Home Club that is trying to return to reality and the Ostinato Musicians who are supporting the current “ideal” world. Other major characters include the virtual idols Regret, the creator of the current world, and χ (Chi), who opposes Regret. The game’s strategy combat focuses on predicting future actions and chaining combos.
