UK-based publisher PQube games has released a trailer for the English Playstation 3 and Vita version of Nitro+’s science-adventure game, Steins;Gate.
The trailer features a brief introduction to the visual novel’s colorful cast of characters and shows off a bit of the excellent music Nitro+’s visual novels are known for. You can view the trailer in its entirety below.
Previously released in English last year for the PC via publisher JAST, Steins;Gate places players in the shoes of wanna-be mad scientist Okabe Rintaro as he and his group of geeky friends becomes embroiled in a plot involving time travel, murder, and gelatinous bananas. Things only grow from there as the mysterious organization known as SERN—not to be confused with real world scientific organization CERN, begins to stalk Okabe and friends after they accidentally discover a way to send text messages to the past. After its initial Japan release in in 2010, Steins;Gate would go on to spawn a 2011 anime series, three spin-off visual novels, and even a full length movie adaption. The game will also receive an alternate sequel, titled Steins;Gate Zero, sometime later this year.
Steins;Gate hits European stores on June 5th, while a North American release date has yet to be revealed. For more gaming news and review make sure to follow us on Twitter @APGNation.
