The Caligula Effect: Overdose Introduces the “Ostinato Musicians in New Trailer

NIS America released a new trailer for the FuRyu developed JRPG The Caligula Effect: Overdose, coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on March 12.

The trailer introduces the Ostinato Musicians, a group of characters who enjoy the false utopia of Mobius and want to preserve that fantasy for the rest of the students. Although seen as the “villain” route, players can find themselves falling in with this group by making choices during the game. There seem to be reasons to want to help this group as they reveal struggles that they are forced to deal with, but ultimately it will be left off to the player to want to help them or not.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose is set in the world of Mobius, a place where people can forget their problems. However, it’s also been created by a Vocaloid program named μ (Mu) who isn’t going to let the students escape so easily. Players will join a group of students who are trying to escape and fight their out by using the game’s unique battle system. During battles, players can see their attacks before they happen to plan out long combos that inflict over-the-top damage.
