Today Spike Chunsoft announced a North American release date for the Science Adventure visual novels Robotics;Notes Elite and Robotics;Notes DaSH.

The popular visual novels will be released for PS4 and Nintendo Switch on October 13, 2020 with a double pack including both games.

The games are also coming to Steam, but they will be sold separately. The listings are already up on Valve’s storefront (Elite, DaSH). 

Below you can enjoy a new trailer and a batch of screenshots.

Fans have waited long for a localization of this branch of the Science Adventure franchise, which is mostly known for Steins;Gate.

If you’re unfamiliar with it, below you can read an official description for both games.

“In ROBOTICS;NOTES ELITE, play as Kaito Yashio, one of the last two members of Central Tanegashima High’s Robot Research Club. He kicks back and relaxes as his counterpart, the reckless club leader Akiho Senomiya, strives to complete their giant robot in order to keep the club from being disbanded. But Kaito’s days of relaxation end with the discovery of the mysterious Kimijima Report. It contains instructions involving locations all across the island—and warns of a conspiracy targeting the entire world.

In ROBOTICS;NOTES DaSH, the island of Tanegashima is preparing for the Summer Festival. Through Nae Tennouji, an acquaintance from JAXA, Kaito Yashio is introduced to Itaru Hashida from the STEINS;GATE series. Itaru claims to be taking a tour of the island, but as time goes on he starts acting rather strangely… Meanwhile, unsettling incidents begin to occur all around them; harbingers of an event that will again plunge the world into chaos.
Together, both ROBOTICS;NOTES ELITE and ROBOTICS;NOTES DaSH are coming to the West for the first time in ROBOTICS;NOTES DOUBLE PACK.
