PQube has announced Steins;Gate 0 will be available in North America on November 29th on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game will be available as both a physical and digital release.

Steins;Gate 0 will serve as a brand-new story in the popular science fiction visual novel franchise. Players will follow self-proclaimed mad scientist Okabe Rintaro as he realizes he won’t be able to save his love, leading him down the path of a great depression. Okabe has given up on his friends, his research, and even time travel itself. As a result of his actions, all of humanity could end up in serious danger.

While Steins;Gate 0 introduces a cast of new characters and scientific themes that combine time travel with artificial intelligence, fan-favorites like Mayuri, Farris, Daru, Moeka, Luka, and Suzuha will be in the game. While their roles are unclear, we do know they’ll be working to bring Okabe back from his severe depression.

The original Steins;Gate was released back in 2009 in Japan, but it recently made the jump to Steam, allowing visual novel fans to experience the legendary game. While PQube has yet to announce if Steins;Gate 0 will become available on PC, we think it's only a matter of time until it does.

Steins;Gate 0 is now scheduled to release in North America on November 29th.

      Was hoping for PC, since even my 12-inch ultrabook should be fine for this kind of thing.

        So was I. I'm curious to see how well it does on PlayStation next month versus how well the original Steins;Gate did on Steam.

        Like I said, I think it'll be a no-brainer for them to bring it to PC. It'll just take some time. Either way, I'm definitely going to pick it up on PS4.

          I hope you're right. There were two Steins;Gate releases that never made it to PC, so I'm not feeling as confident.

        I suspect that easy localization is built into their engine at this point. Even though there's more Vitas in Japan than any other country, I think there may be more Vitas in the hands of people that can competently read English than people that can read Japanese (but not English). Hopefully it'll make sense to localize to English, at least.
