Film with new story set after "true end" of TV series opened in Japan in 2013

North American anime distributor FUNimation Entertainment announced on Saturday that it has scheduled its release of Steins;Gate – The Movie – Load Region of Déjà Vu (Steins;Gate Fuka Ryōiki no Déjà vu) for next year.

The film reunites the Steins;Gate television series' cast and staff with a completely new story set after the "true end" of the television series. Funimation had announced in 2014 that it had licensed the film.

Funimation will announce more details of the movie's release at the end of November, when PQube will release Steins;Gate 0 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Europe and North America.

Steins;Gate – The Movie – Load Region of Déjà Vu opened in Japan in April 2013, and earned 550 million yen (about US$5.6 million) at the box office.

The 24-episode Steins;Gate television anime series premiered in April 2011. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired, and Funimation later released the series on home video in 2012 and again in 2014.

A rebroadcast of the original Steins;Gate anime in Japan took an alternate route toward the Steins;Gate 0 story in December. An anime adaptation of Steins;Gate 0 has been green-lit.
