PQube has announced that Steins;Gate 0 is officially coming to North America on November 29 for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Steins;Gate 0 is a visual novel video game that puts a spin on the original story’s events.
The game follows the results of a “world line” where Okabe fails at his initial goal. “When a scientist Okabe Rintaro realizes he is unable to save the love of his life, he sinks into a great depression,” the publisher said in a press release. “Giving up on his friends, his research and, crucially, time-travel itself, a series of events which looks set to endanger all of humanity takes place.”
Those familiar with the series will be glad to know that returning characters include – Mayuri, Farris, Daru, Moeka, Luka and Suzuha.
“Steins;Gate 0 is a wonderful game, and I’ve seen many, many people say that they enjoy it more than the original,” the game’s localization lead said in a PlayStation blog post. “While it only requires a little bit of knowledge about the first game, it wraps up certain plot threads, and also answers what’s probably the biggest, most long-running mystery in the series.”
