Topic: The Caligula Effect - The Next Persona 4 Golden?

So I just found out about this game from a blog post on the European PlayStation site and from what I'm gathering about it is that it's more or less a Persona 4 Golden game where you are a high-schooler that explores an overworld and the different parts of a city, you talk to characters and level up your class mates' "social links" as well fight in dungeons just like a regular JRPG game. For me that sounds exactly like P4G (the game is even made by Atlus) and the game's story is even written by a Persona series veteran and it's also about the inner-traumas that high-schoolers struggle with.

I think you'll get a better idea for the game when watching its launch trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qARYuYyN6f0

I mean, everything that I've read and seen screams P4G and it's out next week, exclusively on PS Vita! Unfortunately it's only available digitally but it does come with a lot of extra goodies. I'll have to see more of this game as well as find out its pricing before I'll buy it but I'm actually very excited about this game. Can't believe I heard about it just now, this should be a pretty big deal because P4G is basically the best game on the Vita.

Apparently the pricing is 40 US dollars and 40 euros in the respective regions, which is a decent price for a game like this but it's still digital only. I'll have to see if I can overcome that fact, but there is a good chance that I will because the Vita has been nothing short of a an amazing system that has all my favourite JRPGs of all time, so this game has that to its advantage for winning me over.

Never heard of this and I'm not too enthusiastic about more school drama. But then again if it's a Vita exclusive it's worth supporting.

@Ralizah Haven't heard of any of the critics that reviewed it though, except for PlayStation Lifestyle which gave it 80/100. But I will look for more gameplay videos just to see how good or bad it is.

I don't really care for a PS4 version since I still have Persona 5 to play on it and it seems that most future JRPGs will only come to PS4 so this might be the last "Persona" game that will come out for the Vita.

@KratosMD Let me know what you think of it. I know a lot of people were looking forward to it, so the radio silence, even from avid Vita fans who usually trumpet their favorite new game to the world, has me a bit weary.

EDIT: Also, ignore the PS4 comment. I was thinking of Tokyo Xanadu.

Apparently the game has been delayed and won't be coming out today: https://twitter.com/AtlusUSA/status/861744664025612288

I'm guessing they're doing this in order to patch up the technical issues of the games before releasing it (hopefully)? I still see the game being available on the EU PS Store, but I won't be getting it now if it's not even ready for release. Somebody even bought it and rated it one star on the store, lol.

@Kogorn733 I mean, I don't think you can even get it in some places and if you can, then you probably shouldn't because it's been officially delayed. Best to just wait for an update from Atlus on when you should get the game.

Wow. I definitely add it to my ps vita list. The system keeps on giving. 😀. Hopeful push square will do a write up when its release

@brendon987 Yeah, this game does look very promising and the only criticism I've heard of it is that it has some technical issues. Hopefully Atlus delayed the game because they want to iron those out because I will definitely get it eventually.
