The Caligula Effect | Digital Deluxe Edition

Though The Caligula Effect is digital only in the West, that isn’t stopping Atlus from putting out a special edition. The digital deluxe edition of the game will come with all sorts of goodies for the price of $39.99/€39.99/£29.99.

The digital deluxe version of the game includes:

  • A theme featuring μ, the game’s virtual idol, and various characters
  • 19 avatars
  • Swimsuit DLC

Atlus described the game’s 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 releases digitally on PlayStation Vita in the Americas and Europe on May 2nd. Only the original Japanese audio will be available.

    It was digital only as well in Japan sadly but they had a lot more special editions and extra goodies. I was heavily interested in teh game even back then and yeah, I really wish it had a physical release. Gonna have to bite my lip and just deal with that. I’m definitely gonna pick this game up when it comes out.
