NIS America has announced the release date for the PS5 version of The Caligula Effect: Overdose. The Japan RPG remake is coming to the New Gen console in June.
The remake of the Japan RPG “The Caligula Effect” has been available for PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC since March 2019. An announcement trailer for the PS5 version of the game was then shown at the end of February this year, although no release date has yet been given. Now the US publisher NIS America has released a video introducing some of the characters. A release date was also given.
The new-gen version of “The Caligula Effect: Overdose” is scheduled to be available digitally and in stores from June 2, 2023 and will cost 49.99 euros. You can already pre-order the physical version. On the PS5 you can expect nicer graphics and better overall performance. “The Caligula Effect” is one of the less well-known Japanese RPGs, but it certainly has its fans.
Remake of the PS Vita original features improved graphics and lots of new content
The original version of “The Caligula Effect” was only released digitally for the PS Vita and was received much worse than deserved due to the numerous bugs and game errors. The remake, released in 2019, should do better, which according to the critics it also managed in many aspects.
The game is about a virtual world into which people plagued by mental illnesses are kidnapped to give them a better life. Even if not entirely voluntarily. Story-wise, that sounds very interesting. As with many offshoots of this genre, the combat system is turn-based. Some of the playable characters were also introduced in the new announcement video.

“The Caligula Effect: Overdose” is partly reminiscent of the “Persona” series in many aspects and the look. Anyone who has not yet played the remake released in March 2019 for Ps4, Nintendo Switch and PC can now do so on PS5 from June 2nd.
