October’s looking to be another packed month as NIS America‘s confirmed The CaligulaEffect2 from developer FuRyu is launching on October 17, 2023, in North America, followed by October 20, 2023, in Europe for PlayStation 5.
A virtuadoll named Regret has seemingly created Red, a world where people can be saved from their past regrets by imprisoning them in a simulation. Unsurprisingly, things do not go well one day when a virtual idol named χ breaks into Regret’s virtual reality and restores one of its residents’ memories of the real world. To escape Redo, the resistance group, the Go-Home Club, is reestablished to fight Regret and the Obbligato Musicians.
The Caligula Effect 2 pulls elements from the Persona series as you recruit other students to help you stop Regret. Battles are turned-based, and you can use the Imaginary Chain to predict enemy movements and plan your strategy.
