Mages has announced Steins;Gate 0 Elite, the follow-up to Steins;Gate. Steins;Gate Elite received a similar treatment, being fully animated, and released last year. A release date has not been announced for the game’s follow-up nor have any platforms been announced. If Steins;Gate Elite is anything to go on, the game will be released for both the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. Steins;Gate Elite featured fully animated sequences taken from the anime series, along with brand new animated footage developed by White Fox, the studio behind the anime series. 📢 特報①ゲーム「STEINS;GATE 0 ELITE」企画進行中！#科学ADV #シュタゲ#シュタゲゼロエリート pic.twitter.com/xQBzb9M9bt — 科学ADV公式 #シュタゲ10周年 (@kagakuadv) January 26, 2020 It will be interesting to see how they handle Steins;Gate 0 Elite, considering the anime series converged the two main routes and a lot of moments were left out of the series. It will take a considerable amount of brand new animation in order to bring Steins;Gate 0 to life, but there is no doubt that White Fox is up to the challenge. Many consider Steins;Gate 0 superior to the original, and I have to say, the two are neck-and-neck. Steins;Gate 0 is much darker and it will be interesting to see how the animation is handled in 0 Elite. If the first game is anything to go on though, there’s no doubt in my mind that it will be a rousing success. Steins;Gate is one of the greatest stories of our time. Steins;Gate 0 deals with some very serious themes, such as depression, PTSD, and the like. It’s a story of a broken man who is trying to put himself back together. It would be best described as a “midquel” instead of a sequel. It ties up the story of Steins;Gate perfectly though. The fact that it’s getting the same treatment that Steins;Gate received is both refreshing and fantastic for gamers and those with a passion for storytelling alike. If Steins;Gate Elite is anything to go on, Steins;Gate Elite 0 will be a masterpiece as its predecessor was.
