5pb. Games began streaming a television commercial for its Steins;Gate Elite game on Tuesday. The character Kurisu Makise narrates the video, and it ends with her teasing that the “world lines” that were not animated in the anime are “being experimented.” (Note: The first video below is region-locked for the United States, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand.)
Steins;Gate Elite is a major update of the original Steins;Gate game from Mages with new elements. The game replaces scenes in the original visual novel with scenes from the anime adaptation. The game is slated for March 15 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch in Japan.
Set in Tokyo’s Akihabara district, the original game followed Rintarō Okabe as he changes fate by travelling between different world lines. The game inspired a 2011 television anime as well as the Steins;Gate – The Movie – Load Region of Déjà Vu sequel, and the game franchise boasts over 1 million copies. The followup game Steins;Gate 0 is inspiring its own anime project.
PQube released the Steins;Gate 0 game on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Europe and North America in November 2016.
