Japanese outlet Gamespark recently interviewed MAGES’ games division director, Makoto Asada, primarily discussing the illegal uploading of visual novel gameplay. So, a decent chunk of what’s stated here isn’t particularly interesting.
However, the very end of the interview does have something significant. Our team’s Ryuji translated the following exchange:
Interviewer: Lastly, do you have anything you would like to say as closing words?
Asada: Well…STEINS;GATE will celebrate its 15th anniversary next year, so we would like to do something big around this Fall.
Steins;Gate was initially launched on October 15, 2009, so we still have over a year until the 15th anniversary itself. Still, it’s pretty exciting to hear that some sort of plan is in place for this Fall. While it may not be anything significant, perhaps we may get more crumbs about the next Science Adventure entry.
Thanks to the Science Adventure fansite Kiri Kiri Basara for sharing this news.
Also regarding Steins;Gate, the official Japan Anniversary Association has made July 28 Steins;Gate Day.
In 2037, the protagonist Pollon Takaoka and his best friend Cross Yumikawa work as hackers for Nakano Symphonies following the “Sad Morning” disaster from 2036. However, during one such seemingly ordinary day, Pollon encounters a girl named Momo, who is on the run from the authorities for unknown reasons.

After failing in his task to protect her, he utilizes a new app he receives, which allows him to Save and Load in real life, akin to a video game. With his save data viewable via the game’s UI, Pollon ends up interacting with the player moving forward as they both attempt to uncover the mysteries of this program and several other events.
