    5pb has announced that their popular visual novel Steins;Gate will be releasing on Steam next month. The visual novel will also be coming to iOS as well. There is no set price announced at this time. Steins;Gate already has been released on PC via a DRM-free version by JastUSA, but the art assets were only output at 1024x567, while this release will be at a full 1080p HD.

    i pretty sure that all upcoming consol's big hits like Persona 5 will have steam re-release, sooner or later, a sort of Persona collection (2-4) would be great :)

    >1080p art assets

    There had better be a patch for those of us who own a LE on disk. :|

    But anyways, Steins;Gate is one of the best VNs. Ever. Makise Kurisu <3

    What's the problem if they're actually good games? This one in particular is great, and it's not like they're preventing other games from being released.

    DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS VN YOU STEREOTYPING SHIT TASTE PEOPLE.

    Steins;Gate is FUCKING AMAZING, in my opinion it's the best VN and Anime ever made ( the manga is kinda meh ) and I'll be buying this again for the 1080p :D

    Would prefer on Android as well.

    Playing Amnesia on Android was oddly one of the most comfortable experiences i've ever had with a visual novel. Android phones have large, incredible screens and powerful insides to produce that amazing premium experience. It's almost weird looking at iphones since they have such low ppi.

    All the better for seeing dellusional young men caging you in their home and taking HQ screenshots when you're free (seriously, this was from my cellphone. wow man).

    To be fair, there has been a quite big influx of VNs on Steam lately, most of which are mediocre or outright bad.
    Just as a lot of people are tired of seeing "yet another generic FPS", there are some people who are tired of seeing what is likely "yet another generic waifu game" as far as they're concerned.
    As for Steins;Gate itself, it's pretty good. Not the best thing out there by a long shot, but definitely worth a look for anyone who likes sci-fi and visual novels.

    Yes, but this is the first time on Steam.

    Anywhoo, god damn you, @Chary . I read "Steins;Gate," "Steam," and "September" and my brain inserted a 0 in there. You got me hyped for nothing. The PC version of Steins;Gate is coming out this month so it shouldn't take that long to just insert the translated files into the already-programmed game... come on... don't give me a delay.
