Steins;Gate Elite: Linear Bounded Phenogram Adds 30 Hours of Exclusive Content

This announcement was originally made at GDC, but somehow I missed it. If you missed it too, you’re welcome. (Skip down for the release date announcement.)

Planning to buy Steins;Gate Elite? If you buy it on the PS4 (and why wouldn’t you?), you will receive the ten extra stories included in Steins;Gate Elite: Linear Bounded Phenogram. (On a side note, we finally have a crazy title from source material that repeatedly makes crazy titles.) There is a story for each of the lab members, including two for Rintaro Okabe, AKA Hououin Kyouma, and one for Mr. Braun. This adds up to 30 hours of “never-before-released content”.

That is on top of the rest of the game. Steins;Gate Elite is a remake that incorporates the animation from the show into the cutscenes, so they are more alive. Using a microwave time machine, you will change the past, run from a shadowy organization with world domination in mind, and grow into a less annoying and much deeper person. With multiple endings, you will need to fight to reach the 1% divergence.

There is one bit of news that is fresh. Spike Chunsoft dropped a release date on us today in the trailer at the top of the article. Starting February 19th, 2019, you can follow the members of the Future Gadgets Lab in both the original story and the new stories in Linear Bounded Phenogram.

There is also a limited edition planned. It will include a cloth poster and a hardcover book with story boards from scenes from Steins;Gate Elite. The director of Steins;Gate 0, Kenichi Kawamura, created them, so this isn’t the first rodeo with new content. Finally, the limited edition will have a custom outer box. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon, and that seems to be the only place for now.

For anyone who wants to know what all the fuss is about, you can stream the Steins;Gate anime from Crunchyroll here. It is well worth your time, but give it a few episodes. Everything will make sense (more or less) by the end.
