Today NIS America released a new brand new trailer of the upcoming JRPG The Caligula Effect: Overdose, or simply Caligula Overdose as it’s titled in Japan.
The video showcases the fact that while the title features some rather dark and deep themes, there certainly are some funny and lighter moments, as you would expect from most JRPGs.
The game was developed by Tokyo-based studio FuRyu and is a remaster of the original The Caligula Effect, which was released for PlayStation Vita in 2016 and published in the west by Atlus almost a year after. After a switch in publisher, the remaster is coming via NIS America.
It often gets compared with the Persona series, and that’s quite a lot deeper than superficial similarities. The scenario has been written by Tadashi Satomi, who is well known for writing the script for Revelations: Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.
You can check out the trailer below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy another trailer released yesterday starring the bad guys, and video from a few weeks ago featuring the main cast.
The western release will come on March 12 in North America and will be followed on March 15 in Europe, for PS4, Switch, and PC.
