Spike Chunsoft did a surprise announcement today by releasing Steins;Gate 0 and Steins;Gate: My Darling’s Embrace on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam in the west.
In celebration of the Steins;Gate 10th anniversary, the publisher is releasing both games at a 10% discount from December 10 through December 17. However, Steins;Gate: My Darling’s Embrace is only discounted for PS Plus users in Europe and not NA on PS4.
Steins;Gate 0 tells a new story in the Steins;Gate series and explores a new timeline of events. The central hook of the story is artificial intelligence where a group of student bend time to prevent World War 3. This focuses on an Alternate Worldline where the players failed during the original story.
Steins;Gate: My Darling’s Embrace (translated initially as Steins:Gate: Darling of Loving Vows) is a romantic comedy visual novel that functions as a spin-off to the original Steins;Gate. The game is set in a different worldline/universe but stars the same characters as the original while focusing on the lead, Okabe Rintaro trying to pay bills, as opposed to unraveling a conspiracy theory. Your choices will lead to him romancing one of many female cast members, so you can witness all the shenanigans that unfold.
