Atlus has revealed their plans to localize the interesting new RPG, with a release window set for next year.

FuRyu and Aquiria have been working together to bring us Caligula; an RPG set within a repeating virtual reality nightmare. Occupants are unaware that they’re trapped in this fake world, and come to be complacent with it – forever reliving their school days. That is, until some of the “students” begin to realize that the world is not real… and attempt to find a way out.

Does that sound interesting to you?

Well it should, as it’s being developed by Persona 1 & 2’s scenario writer, and it’s now headed our way! Atlus has confirmed that they’re bringing the game West next year, Caligula arriving in North America and Europe as a PSN only (digital) title in 2017.

Aside from the “no physical no buy” naysayers out there, how psyched is everyone? Personally this one’s been on my radar since it was announced, and I’m smiling like a dork right now (haha).

Caligula is coming West in 2017, catch up on all the news so far via our past articles here.

    Definitely happy about this. Day one buy for me.

  • Nman90

    As much as i would love the hell out of a physical limited edition, im just glad this is coming over. Definitely a day one buy for me cant wait.

  • Maru Krisis

    I’ve been praying for this game so hard. It’s shut up my ally, and the system looks swell. Day 1 Buy all the way!

  • Kumiko

    Yes!! Words cannot describe how happy I am. And an European release by them? Huh, I’m used to NISA releasing their games in Europe, but whatever. It frees up NISA to release other games (Shiren 5 in Europe anyone?).

    Now the only game that remains in my “really want it to be localized” is is Tokyo Xanadu. Well, and Digimon, but I’m pretty sure Namco Bandai will not pass up bringing that one over to the west after Cyber Sleuth sold so well.

    Yes! Awesome! This looks very interesting! I just wish it weren’t so far away and digital only, but that second part seems to be par for the course for Vita niw, so… oh well.

  • Ichigo Yoite

    Naysayer here but for this… I might make an exception because it looks damn promising.

    But lets wait for some japanese reviews first 😉

    A physical edition is possible if Hardin’s tweet if anything to go by, but I remain cautiously optimistic for this title regardles. Not sure if I want to pay full price for a digital only gme.

    LimitedRunGames is interested in getting an physical version of Caligula out. https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/status/743741599729934337 Hopefully Atlus is interested too.

    • j0eeyy_p

      Hopefully we’ll get a definitive answer in the next couple of months. There is a market for a limited physical run.

    Nice! I’m glad this game is getting a Western release. I wonder how they plan on bringing the online content. Will it be a shared global server or will it be separate for each region?
