Robotics;Notes Elite, the upcoming visual novel published by Spike Chunsoft, has been rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board. The game was announced at Anime Expo 2019, but since then details have been rather mum. It was given a 2020 release date, but it’s still unknown exactly when in 2020 that will be. Considering it’s been given a rating by the ESRB though, it shouldn’t be too much longer of a wait. Robotics;Notes Elite is a remake of the original Robotics;Notes, following in the footsteps of Steins;Gate Elite. It will include animation from the anime series and presumably brand new animated sequences that were not animated for the series.

The ESRB gave the game this description:

This is an adventure game in which players follow the story of a high-school student solving a mystery involving robotics. As players progress through the narrative, they may encounter instances of violence: a man pointing a gun at characters; a woman jumping off a cliff (off-screen) to her death; a woman pointing a gun at her head. In some sequences, players can briefly engage in robot battles, as players enter commands (e.g., on-screen prompts) to see attacks performed. In a handful of sequences, blood is seen pooling underneath a character’s leg and staining a man’s hands. The game also contains references to sexual material in the dialogue (e.g., “This sl*t is trying to be sexy”; “Mitsuhiko, you’re gonna get sued for sexual harassment”; “You put sleeping pills in this, didn’t you? Then while I’m asleep, you’re gonna have your way with me”; “If possible, I wanted to gaze upon your nude bod for a little longer.”). The word “sh*t” appears in the game.

Robotics;Notes Elite will be released for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam/PC this year.
