Steins;Gate Elite for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC Delayed to Early 2019

If you were eagerly waiting for Steins;Gate Elite, it won't come in 2018 anymore, but it'll release on PS4, Switch, and PC early next year.

Back in March, Spike Chunsoft announced that Steins;Gate Elite would come west in 2018. This isn’t the case anymore as announced during a panel at Anime Expo 2018 in Los Angeles.

The game is now slated for a western release in North America and Europe for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in early 2019.

As previously announced, the game will lose in the west its PS Vita version that will be released only in Japan, but I doubt many will be overly surprised by that by now. The Japanese release is scheduled for PS4, Switch, and PS Vita on September 20th.

The game retells the story of the original and super-popular visual novel Steins;Gate by mixing the original art and cutscenes from the anime series that aired in 2011, basically bringing the player the best of both worlds in a rather original remastering operation. That being said, there will be new anime scenes created specifically for the game, since the anime did not show all the routes (quite obviously).
