Steins;Gate Elite is a “full animation adventure game,” coming to Switch

Includes routes not featured in the TV anime.

Steins;Gate Elite

Steins;Gate Elite will launch for Switch in addition to the previously announced PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions in spring 2018 in Japan, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.

The new version of Steins;Gate is described as a “full animation adventure game,” completely different from the series’ traditional style. Every second of the 24-episode television anime has been captured for the game, and new routes that were not in the anime are being produced. Production is being handled by WhiteFox, the same animation studio that produced the anime.

If you’re at Tokyo Game Show 2017 in Chiba this week, a 10-minute demo of Steins;Gate Elite will be playable on PlayStation 4 at the Sega booth.

Thanks, Famitsu and Ryokutya2089.
