NIS America has launched a new trailer for the Historia and Furyu-developed action RPG game, The Caligula Effect 2, revealing that the game will be coming to the West for the very first time. The game will be available to play on the Nintendo Switch and PS4 console on October 21, 2021. The release day will not only include a regular version of the game but a limited edition one that will contain The Caligula Effect 2, a hardcover art book titled “The Artwork of The Caligula Effect 2,” a 2-disc soundtrack, a Tatefushi Academy schoolbag, a luggage tag, a collector’s box, and a Tatefushi Academy “student ID.”
For those unfamiliar with The Caligula Effect 2, it is an RPG game set in a futuristic high school where you play as a student. You must escape home after being freed from the “shackles of your past and your regrets.” In the new trailer, we are first introduced to a virtual doll named Regret. Regret has created the world of Redo, this world saves people from their past regrets while unknowingly imprisoning them in a simulation. This simulation, which seems like paradise for those wanting to leave their past behind, soon becomes dismantled when a virtual idol named “χ” breaks into Redo. χ releases and restores the trapped student’s memories from the real world and they soon begin to realize that the simulation isn’t what they think it is. This conflict causes the students to try to fight back against Regret and her enforcers, the Obbligato Musicians.
Your mission begins with trying to re-establish the “Go-Home Club,” a resistance group seeking to fight the virtual doll Regret and the Obbligato Musicians. Will you escape Redo or will everyone be trapped in this salvation-seeking simulation forever?
Equipped with anime-styled characters who contain various powers through song, The Caligula Effect 2 launching this Fall will have players in combat with unique features such as The Imaginary Chain and the Recapture Space.
