Steins;Gate 0

A Steins;Gate sequel called Steins;Gate 0 is currently in development, 5pb. announced during a TwitCasting presentation this morning.

The story is set after Rintarou Okabe was not able to save a certain someone from the Beta world line in the Steins;Gate: Epigraph of the Closed Curve light novel. The stories from the drama CDs and light novels will act as one of the game’s “roots,” but Steins;Gate 0 is not a game-ification of the novels. It is described as a legitimate numbered sequel with a new scenario.

Steins;Gate 0‘s staff is as follows:

  • Planning and Author: Chiyomaru Shikura
  • Producer: Tatsuya Matsubara
  • Character Design: Huke
  • Scenario: Naotaka Hayashi, Toru Yasumoto, Masaki Takimoto, and Tsukasa Tsuchiya
  • Music: Takeshi Abo

Platforms were not announced. An anime for Steins;Gate 0 is also planned.

Watch the teaser trailer below. Visit the game’s website here.

Thanks, Games Talk and Famitsu.
