Today, Spike Chunsoft finally revealed the western release date for its Visual Novel Steins;Gate Elite.

The game will launch on February 19th, 2019 for PS4, Switch, and PC.

Steins;Gate Elite released on September 20th in Japan, for PS4, Switch, and PS Vita. The PS Vita version was dropped for the western release. The game was initially supposed to release soon after that in the west, in late 2018, but was delayed.

While I’m into Visual Novels, I can’t say I’m a big fan of Steins;Gate or the Science Adventure series it’s part of, except for Robotics;Notes, which I found fine. My weird tastes asides, Steins;Gate is one of the most popular Visual Novels on Earth and is widely known outside Japan as well, thanks to multiple anime adaptations, one of which is currently ongoing.

You can check out the previously revealed opening movie and the first trailer for the game. For further reading, you can take a look at our editorial for Steins;Gate 0, the previous game in the franchise, and its review as well.
