Kadokawa's website announced on Tuesday that game developer FuRyu is developing a new game titled Caligula for the PlayStation Vita. The website is hosting a thumbnail image preview of its feature article in this week's Weekly Famitsu magazine, which ships on Thursday. The article will contain more details on the game.

Famitsu also began streaming a teaser trailer that reveals a June 23 release date. Pre-order bonuses include a soundtrack CD, visual booklet, swimsuit DLC, and an application to participate in a fan event.

The cast members revealed in the video are:

  • Chiharu Sawashiro as the protagonist
  • Rie Murakawa as Kotono Kashiwaba
  • Shunsuke Takeuchi as Shogo Satake
  • Rie Takahashi as Mihue Sonohara
  • Yoshimasa Hosoya as Kotarō Tomoe
  • Minami Tanaka as Suzuna Kagura
  • Yuichiro Umehara as Izuru Minezawa
  • Ari Ozawa as Naruko Morita
  • Shouta Aoi as Kensuke Hibiki
  • Reina Ueda as μ
  • Eriko Nakamura as Mirei
  • Emi Nitta as Sweet P
  • Yuka Ōtsubo as Sone

The article describes the game as a "next-generation school juvenile RPG," focused on themes of modern pathology and trauma. The game's title refers to the "Caligula Effect," which is a pattern of behavior where one wants to see or do something the more if it is denied to them. It will be set in a virtual reality world called Moebius, where a group of nine boys and girls are trying to escape the virtual world to return to the real world.

Director Takuya Yamanaka, scenario writer Tadashi Satomi (Shin Megami Tensei: Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment), and illustrator Oguchi are on board for the game.
