STEINS;GATE ELITE Now Available For Steam, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch in North America And Europe
It’s hard to believe that it has already been ten years since the original release of STEINS;GATE. This visual novel quickly became a cult classic after its release and its storyline, about the consequences of messing around with time travel, was certainly very memorable. The popularity of the game also resulted in a manga adaptation, as well as an anime adaptation by White Fox. It is this anime adaptation that is of particular interest as it has been used as the basis for a brand new release, titled STEINS;GATE ELITE.
STEINS:GATE ELITE is a fully remastered version of the original game that makes use of animated scenes from the anime for an even more immersive experience. Fans of the anime will already know that it didn’t explore all of the possible branches of the visual novel, which means that the game will feature newly created sequences for certain endings. The game is available right now for STEAM, as well as Nintendo Switch, and Playstation 4. In addition to the game, each platform has also received some exclusive content. For Steam and Playstation 4, it is STEINS;GATE: Linear Bounded Phenogram, which features ten brand new stories for the original cast. On the other hand, Nintendo Switch owners can get their hands on “8-BIT ADV STEINS:GATE” which enables them to play as Okabe and explore an 8-bit version of Akihabara.
