The game is the follow up to the popular visual novel Robotics;Notes, and is also part of the Steins;Gate universeIt will release in Japan on November 22nd for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

The setting is shortly after the first game, in 2020 of the 1.048596 divergence. With the rapid development of the information infrastructure, the network-based society has reduced distances in the world. Touchpad devices named “Pocket computers”  have become widespread, and both industrial and consumer robots are commonplace.

Suddenly, an uprising of the robots took place, but the students at Tanegashima high school averted the crisis. Yet, the event highlighted the vulnerability of a society based on the network. To be more precise, the game is set six months after the uprising, as Tanegashima high school is ablaze with the preparations for the summer festival.

Quite a few characters make a comeback, including protagonists Kaito Yashio and Akiho Senomiya, on top of Subaru Hidaka, Junna Daitoku, Frau Koujiro, Airi, and Nae Tennouji. Itaru “Daru” Hashida from Steins;Gate is also featured.

Interestingly, the game features a new app for the Pocket Computer named “Deluoode Map.” The player can use it to choose destinations, and this affects the narrative branches.

You can check out all the images below keeping in mind that we’re looking at magazine scans, so quality is far from perfect.
