Free Your Mind and Face the Truth - The Caligula Effect released - PS Vita

No one ever says high school is easy, but some of the students at Kishimai High School will learn that teachers, tests, and fitting in will be the least of their concerns.

That's because they'll come to realize that everything they know is a lie! Not in a "teen angst" kind of way, but in a "the world they live in is literally a digital prison ruled by a virtual idol" kind of way. It's time to join the Go-Home Club and escape from a virtual hell because The Caligula Effect is now available in the Americas on PlayStation Vita! The game is a digital title priced at $39.99. It will be available in Europe one week later on May 9, priced at €39.99/£29.99.

The game features a dark story written by Persona series veteran Tadashi Satomi (the writer of Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment), 500+ NPCs to build relationships with, an addicting strategic battle system called "Imaginary Chain," original songs by celebrated Japanese music producers, and more! If you've been looking for a full JRPG experience on the PS Vita, The Caligula Effect is your jam.

The Caligula Effect features:
  • A human story set in a virtual world - Experience a dark story as the Go-Home Club does whatever it takes to escape the digital prison known as Mobius. The crew must defeat a group of evil music producers (known as the Ostinato Musicians) who have been working with μ, and come face-to-face with their own black secrets/desires. Written by Persona series veteran Tadashi Satomi (Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment), players will fight towards freedom as they examine the ugly psychological issues that plague the various characters in the game.
  • Multiple relationships to nurture - There are 500+ NPCs to recruit into the party to be used in combat. Each has a preassigned class (such as offense, support, etc...) and have a unique background story that'll slowly be uncovered by completing various quests. Oh, but there's only 4 characters in a party, so choose your teammates wisely!
  • A strategic battle system - The game features a unique battle system called "Imaginary Chain" that makes encounters an exercise in planning. Once enemies are encountered, players will seamlessly transition into battles where they can choose from 100+ skills to unleash on their enemies. While choosing skills, players can adjust timing and see a simulated preview of their attack before committing to it. Maximize damage by creating deadly attack chains between party members and don't let enemies catch their breath!
  • Music by celebrated producers - It's only fitting that a game about fighting musicians features original songs by celebrated Japanese producers such as OSTER project, 40mP, 164, cosMo@Bousou-P, and more!
The Caligula Effect features its original Japanese audio and is out now in the Americas as a PlayStation Vita digital download title for $39.99/€39.99/£29.99 (it will launch in Europe on May 9).
