Today, Spike Chunsoft announced that it has partnered with MAGES Inc. in order to release STEINS;GATE ELITE early next year for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. In addition to an HD remake of the original game, both the Switch and PS4/PC versions will include bonus content for those to get back into the time-traveling visual novel.
STEINS;GATE ELITE follows a rag-tag band of tech-savvy young students who discover the means of changing the past via e-mail using a modified microwave. Their experiments in pushing the boundaries of time begin to spiral out of control as they become entangled in a conspiracy surrounding SERN, the organization behind the Large Hadron Collider, and John Titor, who claims to be from a dystopian future.
While this version will include improvements from the original release, there are two special additions, available for the PS4/Steam and Switch versions, respectively:
An HD remake of STEINS;GATE: Linear Bounded Phenogram, a collection of 10 additional stories written by renowned writers, including the Zero Escape series scenario writer, Kotaro Uchikoshi, will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions. For the Nintendo Switch version, 8-BIT ADV STEINS;GATE, a special 8-bit graphics and chiptune version of the game developed by series creator Chiyomaru Shikura, will be available. These bonus contents are available with all digital and physical copies. Pre-orders are now available at your local retailer!
