'Famicom version' of game included in first copies of game's Switch release

MAGES president. Chiyomaru Shikura posted a commercial on his Twitter account last Saturday for the Famicom ADV Steins;Gate (Steins;Gate 8-bit) game that will be included in the initial run of the Switch version of the Steins;Gate Elite game.

Shikura explained in his Twitter post that the game's marketing team chastised him for promoting the extra game over the main game, but he went ahead and made the video.

Shikura also posted a different video showing that the developers made a physical Famicom cartridge for the extra game that works on the actual Famicom console. However, the cartridge will not be offered (the game included in the Switch version is a digital download).

Steins;Gate Elite will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch in Japan on September 20. Spike Chunsoft will release the game in North America and Europe for the PS4, Switch, and PC via Steam in early 2019, delayed from its earlier planned release date of 2018.

The regular physical edition of the game in Japan will cost 7,800 yen (about US$71), and the digital version will cost 7,000 yen (about US$63). The first copies will include a random filmstrip for the new anime in the game. The first copies of the PS4 and PS Vita versions will include a download code for the Steins;Gate: Linear Bounded Phenogram HD game. In addition, a complete built-to-order limited edition of the game will bundle a framed A4-size illustration by character designer huke, an 80-page A4-size collection of storyboards for the game's new anime, and a special filmstrip for 18,000 yen (about US$160).

All PS4 and Steam versions of the game in North America and Europe will come with the Steins;Gate: Linear Bounded Phenogram bonus content. All Switch versions will include "8-bit adventure Steins;Gate."

WHITE FOX (Steins;Gate, Steins;Gate 0, Steins;Gate: The Movie - Load Region of Déjà Vu) is providing anime scenes for the game, and the scenes will include some that did not appear in the television anime.

Steins;Gate Elite is a major update of the original Steins;Gate game from Mages with new elements. The game replaces scenes in the original visual novel with scenes from the anime adaptation. 5pb. Games previously streamed a commercial for the game last November that hinted that "world lines" that were not animated in the anime are "being experimented."
