  • Hoping that there will be English release for this in the future.

    • Budgiecat


      •  I rather be hopeful than spiteful.

  • fireemblembeast

    Woah awesome! Hopefully there’s another anime for those of us who don’t want to play through it. I can’t imagine what the story will be…

    • Kazziyan

      It will come with an unaired episode.

      • fireemblembeast

        I want another season, though. The first one did so well; I can’t imagine what would prevent them.

        • Kazziyan

          Me too. They have so many Side story’s they can base it on. Like mentioned above- the harem ones, or the drama CD’s. Can’t wait for the movie.

          • fireemblembeast

            …..There’s a movie? .__________.
            Damn it, how did I miss that? Although lots of anime I watch have been getting movies as of late. Was it announced recently? Because I can’t follow any anime stuff with schoolwork and such.  >:I

            • Kazziyan

              Haha was actually announced on the final episode of S;G. Recent trailer seems to have the plot about… well the trailer speaks for it self:

     <- trailer, but encoding is awful.

              • fireemblembeast

                Thanks! <3

                • Kazziyan

                  No problem!

      • Are you serious? =__= I haven’t heard of any anime adaptation/OVA of this so far…. But if there one then I am really excited to hear it!!

        But then again, so many S;G stuff, only the anime and some drama CD is available in english official or fansub T.T

        • Kazziyan

          Yeah, this will be coming with an unaired episode. There’s also an OVA if you haven’t seen it yet that is a “sequel” to the ending.

          • Let hope they plan more than just another OVA then :) I mean, they seem like want to adapt all the “;” into anime, S;G is pretty well received and sold well so why not?

            Oh the US trip OVA? Seen it. Kurisu x Okabe OTP.

            • Kazziyan

              Yeah, that was a good OVA! That’d probably be me at the US borders. :P

              I hope the movie is well received- probably will be, then they can animate the new game.

        • Kazziyan

          And yeah I’m incredibly grateful for that person subbing the Drama CD on youtube. The stories rival the main one. Surprisingly good.

  • PrinceHeir


    so this is their next game huh??

    though i was hoping it would be a crossover game of Chaos;Head, Robotics;Notes, and Steins;Gate.

    im playing Chaos;Head now, it’s freaking mind blowing this game is :P

  • InsaneChronos

    The Steins;Gate milking continues… Too bad this game is for the consoles only, there is a very small chance for an english version.

  • Locksus

    Eh, another one? 

  • walikor


  • spike Crush

    El Psy Congroo.

  • What is this game about?

    • Kazziyan

      Not a lot of info, but the story will be told from, not just Okabe, but all the labomen (mem?) perspective.

  • Bloodios

    Please God, no awkward 3D sprites this time around…

    • Budgiecat

      There’s no such thing as a “3D sprite”

      3D is polygons….. -_-

      • Bloodios

        Why, thank you for enlightening me, but at least you know what I meant and that’s what actually matters, right?
        Either way, I’m simply hoping that they would stick with whatever formula they’ve been using prior to Robotics;Notes. The new approach wasn’t quite appealing in my opinion.

        • Fei

          I’m saying as hardcore 2D lover (until now). 3D models and animations in Robotics;Notes are leagues better than most 2D sprites in existence. This game is unique in this regard. You’ve picked a very wrong example here. :)

          Scenario on the other hand was utter disaster so yeah…

          • Bloodios

            I’m not saying that it was bad or anything, and I’m glad you like it. It’s just that I personally don’t find the new approach appealing. I suppose the way I expressed it was a little too aggressive…

    •  It not THT hideous as you guys were speaking….  But yeah, I wish they can stick to drawn sprite cuz I want to see more huke artwork :)

  • WTF? No PC announcement?

    • Kazziyan

      It will probably come. Highly doubt it will stick to consoles considering that’s where most of the fanbase is.

      If not, we can forget about a fan translation.

      • PrinceHeir

        im playing Chaos;Head now.

        so freaking good :D

        though there was a problem in chapter 7 where you can’t saved.

        but someone recently released a patch for the version im playing.

        haven’t tested yet see im already at the beginning of chapter 8, but stop playing due to college.

        so yeah exciting stuff :D

        • Kazziyan

          Chaos;Head is amazing. Glad you’re liking it. :D

          It’s too bad the anime was so mediocre. Really needed the 20+ episodes like Steins;Gate.

          I’ve put 60 hours in to C;H and 70 Hours into Steins- will do again if this and the Side one with the Fanservice and beach stuff is done. Something darling.

          • PrinceHeir

            hell yeah :D

            though about the visions


            whenever you make a choice, the “good green” choice tends to have a some sort of blurry vision. kinda like a “what if”.

            while the red depicts the the worst possible situation can happen

            i wonder if this has relevance :D

            i hope they explain it towards the ending.

            i also read you need a specific route to obtain the other endings??
            mine is around 16 hours i think?
            definitely gonna explore all the endings!!!

            *END SPOILERS

            was your chapter 7 be able to save?

            yeah i heard the anime is not good.

            man we definitely need more VN games like this :)

            im also playing Saya no Uta, and wow this is mind fuckingly good O____O

            did they release the Chaos;Head Love Chu Chu and Chaos;Head Noah(port with new routes) on PC??

            Steins gate also got a few spin off like Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Darling and Steins;Gate: Henikuukan no Octet.

            Renri is similar to Love* Chu Chu, and Henikuukan is the 8 bit game that was revealed last year(I think)

            • Kazziyan

              It’s best if I don’t tell you about the routes. Especially not here. xD Best to experience it for yourself, but I don’t remember if it has any affect… I think it might? Either way- I know you think the 

              *SPOILER* Delusions (green) are lovely~

              *END SPOILER*

              And it was able to save! Saya no Uta is amazing!

              Noah is currently being translated according to TLwiki and its 60% done. I’m not sure about Love Chu Chu- which I want most!! xD

              Yeah yeah that one! Hiyoku Renri no Darling! epic harem- hope it’s translated. XD

              • PrinceHeir

                oh i see :D

                i understand!

                it’s best to experience it myself :)

                yeah green seem to have a good vision and sexy possibilities :D

                wow what version are you using?
                mine was RC2 English Patch :P

                awesome, but Noah is on PC too??

                can’t wait for it :)

                man we need a company that will localize and translate this so i can buy the copy and support the developers :D

                • Kazziyan

                  Same patch lol. xD Weird that your game did that…

                  It’s for X360 and PS3 only I believe… Love Chu Chu is for X360, PS3, PSP. D:

                  • PrinceHeir

                    huh O___O

                    where did you play yours though?

                    yeah the two spin offs are only for console for now 

                    • Kazziyan

                      Where? do you mean download? If i could PM you, I would haha.

                      At least Love Chu Chu is on PSP, so it has a chance.

                    • PrinceHeir

                      oh yes please :D

                      email is [email protected] 

                      i wish people would hurry up and translate Valkyria Chronicles 3 and Final Fantasy Type-0 as well.

              • Kazziyan

                Added you. Though I’m on WLM and I’d rather not speak my email. You’ll know who it is once you see the email though. :P

  • Budgiecat

    How bout make a Steins;Gate game thats not a regurgitated Visual Novel?

    • Kazziyan

      How about no.

    • vertical09

      The main drawing point of Steins;Gate is it’s story. 
      VN’s do story telling fine. 
      Let’s not destroy that.

      • Budgiecat

        We already know the story…

        • Kazziyan

          This is a new story though.

    • HeatPhoenix

      That’s why for people who think VNs are lousy ways to sell manga for more money and less effort like myself, there’s the anime!


  • Raiyu

    I wish these games would make it over here, even though I’ve never really played a VN before. I watched the anime while it was airing and it was amazing.

    • If it make you feel better, there a LP of S;G with a english patch at SA Forum. There a C;H WT somewhere on Utube IIRC.

      Or just get the game with the english patch. (Which I am no expert in it)

  • new_tradition

    Man, I’m so lost with this series. I half wanna get into it, but then if there are different outcomes, how do subsequent games connect? D:

    And yeah, I admit it, I dunno if there’s any girl-geared fanservice to squee over >3>

    • Kazziyan

      hmm what do you mean? There’s one true ending if that’s what you’re wondering.

      • new_tradition

        Really? Oh, that makes it easier then. I’ve only read info on games with pair endings which sometimes effect major things in the story xD

        • Kazziyan

          Oh okay. Nah don’t worry there’s a true end to it all!

  • KurisuMakise

    If only some brave soul would localize the science adventure series. Meanwhile I’ll wait for the anime.
