No wonder, the release for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch should take place in Japan on June 24th. NIS America will bring the RPG to us in the fall.

The Japanese website with lots of details
First of all, the Japanese website for the game was opened, which introduces the many characters in detail. This includes the opposing idols Regret and χ as well as the members of the Go-Home Club and the Obbligato Musicians. All members of the Go-Home Club have to face their own trauma if they want to break out of the dream world of Redo.
That’s what The Caligula Effect 2 is all about
As in the first part, players have to find their way back into reality from a seemingly perfect world. The Caligula Effect 2 is being developed by Historia, with Takuya Yamanaka as the producer. The story comes from Tadashi Satomi, who also worked on the first persona games in this capacity.
Specifically, the virtual personality Regret created the world Redo, where people are supposed to live in a kind of paradise in order to forget their problems. However, the virtual idol χ suddenly bothers by restoring a student’s memory. So the Go-Home Club is re-established to escape Regret.
Regret, however, is supported by the Obbligato Musicians. Players must now lure other students at the Tatefushi Academy into the resistance club in order to win the fight. In combat you can foresee the moves of your opponents and thus use a tactical advantage.
New video footage
The new video material for The Caligula Effect 2 is also particularly interesting. In addition to the debut trailer, there is also eight minutes of gameplay material from a live stream.
A video series on the opposing Obbligato Musicians has also been started. Machina starts, which is an android. He wanted Regret to have a machine body and therefore followed her blindly.
