A new launch trailer has arrived for The Caligula Effect 2. This comes as the RPG makes its debut in the west, as it’s launching today in North America and on October 22 in Europe.

For more on The Caligula Effect 2, check out the following overview:

The Switch version of Crystar will be released in English as part of its newly-announced western release. Just a few moments ago, NIS America announced plans to distribute the action RPG in North America and Europe.

It was revealed yesterday that FuRyu is planning a Switch version of Crystar. While Japan is getting the game on February 24, 2022, NIS America will have it ready to go in Spring 2022 in the west.

Here’s an overview of the game:

FuRyu will release Crystar on Switch, according to Japanese retailer listings. The port will be available in Japan starting on February 24, 2022.

Crystar, an action RPG developed by Gemdrops, originally released in 2018 in Japan. Spike Chunsoft then picked the title up for publishing in the west a year later. The Switch version of Crystar has only been announced for Japan thus far, though since it’s already been out in English, it’s possible that a western launch will happen at a later date.

System: Switch
Release date: October 19, 2021
Developer: FuRyu
Publisher: NIS America

When The Caligula Effect first released in 2017 before receiving an enhanced port in the form of The Caligula Effect: Overdose in 2019 for Switch, one of the most exciting aspects about it was the fact that not only did it have this stunning art style, but also how it was being helmed by Persona writer Tadoshi Satomi. The game initially had a lot of appeal thanks to its vibrant color usage and idol-inspired dystopia that gave it a unique look by giving darkness and corruption bright colors – a palette that is typically used as an indicator for things that are heroic, harmless, or good. However, despite a respectable foundation, it suffered from repetitiveness, performance issues, and a lot of quality of life mechanics that simply were not there. Thankfully, The Caligula Effect 2 improves upon the original game’s problems and adds a lot of enhancements with a beautiful UI that’s intuitive. It also focuses more on putting actual gameplay in reasonably sized dungeons disguised as various Japanese districts and virtual landscapes without the egregiously poor pacing and constant stop-go nature of its predecessor.

Ahead of its release on Switch next week, we have a bunch of gameplay from The Caligula Effect 2.

The RPG came to Switch in Japan on June 24. Next week, NIS America will be publishing the title in the west.
