A new story in the critically-acclaimed STEINS;GATE series. From the depths of despair–explore a whole new world line. Your favourite characters return alongside a brand new cast!

After giving up on saving Kurisu, Okabe went back to his regular life, but was always in pain from the trauma he experienced in the different Worldlines and the flashbacks of Kurisu’s death.

Mayuri suggested that he seek medical help, and the other Lab Members worried about him as well. Thus, Hououin Kyouma was sealed away… that is until Okabe was asked to test Amadeus, where he comes face-to-face with Kurisu’s memory in the form of a interactive application.

Key Features:

  • 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.

Fall in love with the lab members all over again in this sweet and slapstick romantic comedy!

Okabe Rintaro – AKA Okarin – is a college student that is still a chuuni. He calls himself “Mad Scientist Houiuin Kyouma” and spends his time with his “Lab Members” creating weird inventions in the “Future Gadget Laboratory,” AKA the Lab. They accidentally invent a device that allows you to send emails to the past. They named these time leaping emails “D-mail.”

One day, there’s a lot of commotion in the Lab. Seems like they are getting ready to celebrate the creation of a new gadget. However, when before there were six Lab Members, now there are eight? The D-mails must have changed the past… Plus, all the testing being done in the Lab has really run up the electricity bill, and they need a new source of income! So, a new gadget will have to be invented to make some money… What will happen to the life of the Lab Members? What is the will of “Steins;Gate?”

Key Features:

  • Follow Your Heart: Explore the private life of Rintaro and your favorite lab members in a series of “What if?” scenarios.
  • Love Isn’t a Science: The hard science of STEINS;GATE takes a back seat to let the slapstick story run wild!
  • Phone Trigger System: Interact via Rintaro’s cellphone to answer or ignore calls, and send and receive emails. Your everyday choices in life steer the story!

STEINS;GATE 0 is now available digitally for the Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop while STEINS;GATE: My Darling Embrace is available digitally for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and STEAM (for Windows PC).

STEINS;GATE 0 was previously released onto the PlayStation 4 (and PlayStation Vita) via PQube Games and is available both physically and digitally.
