Publisher NIS America has announced that the FuRyu-developed JRPG The Caligula Effect will receive a native PlayStation 5 port in the West for Fall 2023. Details on this version’s differences and features have not yet been provided. 

The Caligula Effect 2 introduces players to a virtuadoll named Regret, who has created the world of Redo to save people from their past regrets by unknowingly imprisoning them in a simulation.

However, this “paradise” is shaken to the core when a virtual idol named χ breaks into Regret’s virtual reality and restores a high school student’s memories of the real world. In order to escape Redo, they re-establish the Go-Home Club, a resistance group that seeks to fight against Regret and her enforcers, the Obbligato Musicians.
