Publisher Spike Chunosft is currently hosting a Mega March sale on the North American and European PSN storefronts, discounting several titles until March 30, 2022. The sale solely comprises select entries from the Science Adventure franchise and the critically acclaimed AI: The Somnium Files.
Robotics;Notes Elite and Robotics;Notes DaSH are both 60% off. These titles are entries in the beloved Science Adventure series, with Robotics;Notes Elite being the first of this saga of entries and Robotics;Notes DaSH being Elite’s direct sequel. We reviewed Elite and DaSH back when they simultaneously released as well.
Steins;Gate Elite and Steins;Gate Darling’s Embrace are also both 60% off. Elite retells the original Steins;Gate visual novel with some alterations, such as the art style being ripped straight from the qualitative anime adaption. On the other hand, Darling’s Embrace is a spinoff with slapstick, romantic comedy.
Hit visual novel AI: The Somnium Files is on sale for 60% off. This is a detective thriller written by the legendary Kotaro Uchikoshi, known for his work on the Zero Escape franchise. There is also stellar artwork drawn by Yusuke Kozaki, a prominent artist known for their work on No More Heroes and Fire Emblem. Be sure to check out our review of the title back when it was initially released on PlayStation 4.

The next localized release for the Science Adventure franchise is Chaos;Head Noah / Chaos;Child Double Pack, launching for Nintendo Switch in the West on October 7, 2022. Chaos;Head Noah / Chaos;Child Double Pack is a physical release of the collection that includes both games, a Steelbook, and the lingerie DLC. Regarding this, the official website states that the protagonist’s fictitious waifu, Seira Orgel, will not adorn her lingerie costume DLC for the North American and European releases.
Chaos:Head Noah can be seen as the director’s cut version of the original Chaos;Head which was a PC-only release in Japan. Noah added character routes and released for several consoles in Japan. Unfortunately, no edition of Chaos;Head has ever received an official localization.
Chaos;Child is a visual novel taking place 6 years after Chaos;Head Noah, focusing on a new group of protagonists. This title did receive an official English localization from publisher PQube on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and by publisher Spike Chunsoft on PC via Steam.
