5pb. has opened the official Japanese website for Robotics;Notes DaSH, providing first information on the game’s story, Deluoode Map System, and more.
Get the details below.
A New Visitor Named DaSH
DaSH appears in the long-awaited sequel to Robotics;Notes. Robotics;Notes DaSH crosses over with other titles in the Science Adventure series more than ever before.
Itaru Hashida, a popular and standout character from the Steins;Gate series, who is known by the name DaSH (“Daru the Super Hacker”), will appear as a main character.
Youth and Conspiracy
Half a year has passed since the original game. Robotics;Notes DaSH depicts characters such as protagonist Kaito Yashio and Akiho Senomiya, who have graduated and left the Robo Club behind, and are seeking out their dreams.
It also depicts the revival of Kou Kimijima, the mastermind from Robotics;Notes. Kou Kimijima installed his memories and personality into an AI to become a digital existence and maneuvered in secret. His backup data was released, and the “Human Cultivation Project” prevented in the previous game starts to wriggle again behind the scenes of the world network.
What will Kaito and the others do when they find out?

While consumer-use robots receiving the benefits of a networked society are becoming more widespread, the robot rebellion incident in February showed the vulnerability of that sort of information society. While it was a global crisis through the network, it was prevented by high school students of Tanegashima island, where the battle took place.
Half a year later. Tanegashima is flooded with people as it prepares for its summer festival. One of the high school students that saved the world from crisis, the protagonist Kaito Yashio, has since graduated and returns to his hometown of Tanegashima after a long time away.
During his return, he meets a middle-aged man named Itaru Hashida, who has a mutual friend and came to Tanegashima to see the sights. However, he cannot help but find his behavior strange. Although this man is actually a super hacker with world-class skills, Kaito has yet to learn this fact. Before long, events that disrupt everyday life start to repeatedly occur.
That was the sign of a conspiracy that is once again trying to throw the world into chaos.
