Power Through the Ostinato Musicians, Escape From Unreality in The Caligula Effect: Overdose

The Caligula Effect: Overdose, a revamped port of the PS Vita exclusive JRPG, will be hitting modern consoles soon, and it’s sporting quite a few new additions. JRPG fans that missed it the first time around will get to enjoy everything the original had to offer plus new scenarios, endings and a brand new “Forbidden Musician” route to tackle. Additionally, players also have the newly added option of a female protagonist and two new members of the “Go-Home” club to interact with. However, new club members means new “Ostinato Musicians” to face. Each of these musicians appears to function as a boss, and they all have their own reasons for wanting to maintain the status quo.

Other unique features found in The Caligula Effect: Overdose include large cast of NPCs to converse with and the “Imaginary Chain:” a battle tool that enables players to see how enemies might respond to their actions. It’s yet another JRPG in a school setting, but this virtual school in Mobius might just be worth attending for a time.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose launches for PC, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on March 12. Check out our review of the original Caligula Effect for a better idea of its good and bad points.
