Once again, the original The Caligula Effect game is coming back. NIS America announced another port of the remake. The Caligula Effect: Overdose is now headed to the PS5 in 2023. There’s no exact release date yet, and the company didn’t announce if there will be any exclusive features yet.
What NIS America did do is release a trailer for the PS5 version of The Caligula Effect: Overdose. It reminds people that this is a game about people attending school in what is actually a virtual world. Its former virtual attendant, Aria, recruited some of the “students” who’ve become aware of the truth to fight back against the space’s current ruler, the virtual idol μ, and her Ostinato Musicians. In addition to your named, major allies, you can recruit 500 ordinary students to fight alongside you. The video shows how that works, as well as some PS5 in-battle gameplay.
The Caligula Effect debuted on the Vita first worldwide. A few years later, the Overdose version appeared with additional content. This allowed someone to chose the gender of their avatar, as well as take part in an Ostinato Musicians arc that let you fight alongside the enemies. It also changed some gameplay elements, to make the battles a little less punishing and it easier to connect with the NPCs.
The Caligula Effect: Overdose will come to the PS5 in 2023. It is available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC.
