The teaser video for Steins;Gate 0, the follow-up game and anime to the original Steins;Gate visual novel, began streaming on Saturday.

Text: November 2010, in the Beta world line
Text: This is the story after Rintarō Okabe was not able to save "her" on July 28.
Text: The "him" of this time didn't know that a system called "AMADEUS" would lead the world into a state where conspiracy once again runs rampant.
Text: Yes, "she" is still there...

Chiyomaru Shikura is in charge of planning, and provided the original concept for the game. Tatsuya Matsubara will produce the game, huke will once again provide the character designs, and Takeshi Abe will compose the music. Naotaka Hayashi, Toru Yasumoto, Masashi Takimoto, and Tsukasa Tsuchiya are writing the scenario.

[ The story of the game and the anime take place in the beta world line, where Okabe could not save his precious person, Kurisu, on July 28, and ended up returning alone. However, the trailer for the game notes that Okabe does not know that Kurisu is in fact still there.]

No platform for the game has been announced.

The original Steins;Gate game released on Xbox 360 in 2009, and the game was later ported to the PC, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita. The game was also released on smartphones. The game inspired a fan disc spin-off titled Steins;Gate Hiyoku Renri no Darling in 2011, which was released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita, as well as on smartphones. JAST USA published the original game in North America for the PC last year, while PQube will publish the game in North America and Europe for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in May.

The original game inspired a television anime in 2011, as well as an original film serving as an epilogue to the TV series in 2013. FUNimation Entertainment has licensed both the television series and film.

Steins;Gate -The Committee of Antimatter-, a novel taking place six years after the original visual novel, was scheduled for release in Japan in January. However, it was cancelled only weeks before the scheduled release.

Update: Name of Okabe fixed. Thanks, Videogamep.
