JAST USA began streaming the English trailer for the Steins;Gate PC game on Friday. The trailer introduces the game's cast and its Phone Trigger System.
JAST USA will release the limited edition for Windows on March 31. The limited edition includes a premium box, a full color fanbook, and two Future Gadget Lab badges with a display case. The regular edition will ship on April 30.
JAST USA announced the license of the game at last year's Anime Expo.
5pb. and Nitroplus' Steins;Gate game is the second "scientific adventure game" from the two companies, who also created Chaos;HEAd and Robotics;Notes. The artist huke (Black Rock Shooter) designed the characters. The story of the original game revolves around the eccentric college student Rintarō "Okarin" Okabe and his "Mirai Gadget Kenkyūsho" ("Future Gadget Laboratory") circle of friends in a realistic version of Tokyo's Akihabara district. The friends turn a microwave oven into a machine that sends email messages to the past, and that attracts the attention of a mysterious organization called SERN.
The game originally shipped for the Xbox 360 console in October 2009, and a Windows port shipped in August 2010. The game has also been ported to the PSP, PS3, PS Vita, and iOS.
The game inspired a 24-episode television anime series in 2011, a one-episode special that was included with the home video release, and most recently the Steins;Gate Fuka Ryōiki no Déjà vu film, which opened in Japan last April. Funimation released the television anime series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2012.
