Today Spike Chunsoft reached out with a press release to announce two Steins;Gate releases hitting the storefronts today.
First of all, Steins;Gate 0 has been released on to Nintendo Switch. The launch is digital only, priced at $29.99.
Below you can see a trailer, a few screenshots, and an official decription.
“A new story in the critically-acclaimed STEINS;GATE series. From the depths of despair–explore a whole new world line. Your favorite characters return alongside a brand new cast!
STEINS;GATE 0 continues the time travelling theme – but adds artificial intelligence as its central hook.
Help a group of young students bend time to their will and prevent the onset of World War 3.
Beautiful artwork and engaging story for an unforgettable experience.
Tells the story of an ‘Alternate Worldline’ – what happens if players failed the original story. Interact with the story using your smart phone – answering (or not!) your phone, and your responses, will determine the outcome to the story.”
The second announcement is about Steins;Gate: My Darling’s Embrace.
It has also been released today, but this time around it’s for PS4, Switch, and PC via Steam. The price is $29.99 as well, and it’s still digital-only on all platforms.
