FuRyu released a large batch of screenshots and art of its upcoming JRPG Caligula 2, or The Caligula Effect 2 as it’s going to be titled in the west.
The images come from a press release and an update of the official site, mostly focusing on the characters that we’ll encounter during the adventure, including playable ones, who have two forms.
We also get to see an auto battle feature that lets you set your companions to be controlled by the AI, but you can still decide parameters dictating how they’ll fight.
On top of that, fulfilling certain conditions in battle will prompt the the friendly virtual doll χ to start singing, empowering the protagonists of the Go-Home Club and possibly reversing difficult situation. The effect changes depending on the song.
You can check out all the screenshots below.
Western gamers will have to wait a bit longer, but we already know that it’s coming to North America and Europe in Fall 2021 for the same platforms, courtesy of NIS America.
Here’s how the publisher describes it, while you can watch plenty of gameplay and a trailer and another trailer focusing on Machina, one starring Pandora, one focusing on MU-Kun, one showing #QP, one starring Doctor, one revealing Kranke, one showcasing Kudan, and one focusing on Bluffman.
“A virtuadoll named Regret has created the world of Redo in order to save people from their past regrets by unknowingly imprisoning them in a simulation. 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, they re-establish the Go-Home Club, a resistance group that seeks to fight against Regret and her enforcers, the Obbligato Musicians.”
