Visual novel Steins;Gate 0 gets metaphysical on the PS4 & Vita in North America.
Steins;Gate 0, the sequel to MAGES and Science Adventure Team’s hugely popular visual novel, is now available in North America for the PlayStation 4 and Vita.
To celebrate the occasion, publisher PQube has released a launch trailer for the game which can be viewed below:
“Charting a darker worldline from the original, Steins;Gate 0 focuses on a reality where genius scientist Okabe Rintaro is unable to save the one he loves, kick-starting a parallel universe where World War III and humanity’s destruction are very real dangers.
Depressed, with no time for his old friends, and having completely abandoned his time travel research, Okabe’s life is once again thrown into chaos when faced once again with his old love Makise Kurisu – but not as he knows her.
The girl he once loved is returned to him via an old piece of her research – the artificial intelligence system known as ‘Amadeus’ with no memory of him or their past relationship.
Now, with the dark forces of the beta worldline Okabe Rintaro must try to keep Amadeus Kurisu safe – but if he couldn’t even save the one he loved, how can he possibly save humanity?”
Kenny thoroughly enjoyed his time with Steins;Gate 0 when he reviewed the title earlier this month saying, “Steins;Gate 0 does a phenomenal job of living up to the original game’s successes in nearly every way. It does feature a much darker story than its predecessor, which I imagine may drive some of the more faint-of-heart away, but for those ready to delve into the next chapter of Rintaro Okabe’s life, I can pretty much guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.”
