Arc System Works Announces Capital Alliance with Developer AQURIA

Arc System Works has announced that they have formed a capital alliance with AQURIA. The latter has developed games since the DS era, with some of their most recent outings including Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, and The Caligula Effect.

Few details were shared aside from the announcement statement. Arc System Works stated that this capital alliance will assist them amidst the constantly increasing level of demand for video game development. Further, their development capabilities and overall structure will be enhanced.

We’ll keep you all updated on any significant announcements made via this alliance.

The Caligula Effect tells the story of a group of students trying to escape the false security and happiness a virtual reality provides. After the protagonist realizes the truth, he and others create the Go-Home Club and try to gather other friends under their banner.

As a turn-based RPG, the game features a unique “Imaginary Chain” system of coordinating characters’ actions and respective timings and predicting trajectories and combo effects before making a move. As the player helps others break free from the falsity of the world, several characters can be recruited and used in battles.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose is available on PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
