The long awaited sequel to visual novel hit Steins;Gate is now available across Europe, and launches in just a few days in North America (29th).

 

The game is set on an alternate world-line to the original, this one being *SPOILERS* one where Okabe isn’t able to save ‘the one he loves’ (Makise Kurisu), and promises a darker tone as a result. “A parallel universe where World War III and humanity’s destruction are very real dangers”.

 

Essentially, after the events of the first game (or the events that happen in a different universe…) Okabe falls into a depression and cuts himself off into isolation. That is, of course, until he finds himself thrust back into the chaos, surprisingly by being reunited with Makise through an artificial intelligence system.

 

So more visual novel fare to enjoy – and if the initial batch of reviews are to be believed, the game is standing up very well. I was a little worried about the ‘dark edge’ that press releases mentioned, as I thought the original found a perfect balance of tone, but it’s looking promising so far.

 

If you’re up for more Steins;Gate, the game is available now on PS4 and Vita in Europe. So you can delve into the time travelling universe once again. Take a look at the launch trailer below.

I started gaming with the release of the PS1 - Crash Bandicoot and Ridge Racer Revolution being the first 'real' games I ever set eyes on - and have been enthralled with the medium ever since. I particularly love strategy and horror games, the sort offered by titles such as Total War and Silent Hill, though I also have a soft spot for a good RPG. I studied Journalism at university in the hopes of progressing into writing about games, but my 'real job' is as a postman. You'll most likely find me covering indie games as I'm always on the look out for interesting little titles, and generally I stick to the PC and PS4 platforms. I'm not interested in MMOs or really any kind of online game, and I have an unusual and frankly worryingly expensive obsession with collecting gaming guide books, but aside from that I like to think I'm a well rounded average gamer.
