Aquria’s RPG The Caligula Effect first released four years ago on this day in Japan for the PS Vita. Publisher FuRyu shared a special illustration for its 4th anniversary along with a little teaser for what’s next.
First, here’s a look at The Caligula Effect‘s 4th anniversary illustration:
The special 4th anniversary illustration was drawn by The Caligula Effect character designer Oguchi. A message also came accompanied alongside the illustration saying that the developers are working hard to show everyone what awaits beyond this ‘door’.
While we didn’t get a new game announcement, FuRyu announced a new Ostinato CD album. Thanks to all the fan demand, it will include three new songs added in the remake, The Caligula Effect: Overdose. It will include songs sung by Lucid (CV: Chiharu Sawashiro), Stork (CV: Shugo Nakamura), and Kuchinashi (CV: Himika Akaneya).
