Steins;Gate Elite will be getting a lovely, fancy limited edition on Nintendo Switch in the west when the game launches next February, it has been confirmed.

This newly announced edition appears to contain different goodies to the one released in Japan, including a 100+ page hardcover artbook which features "beautiful" artwork of the game and a 'Steins;Gate-Universe Storyboard Collection' created by Kenichi Kawamura - the director of the Steins;Gate 0 anime. On top of that, buyers will also get a cloth poster, a custom outer box, and the exclusive '8-bit Adv Steins;Gate' Switch game which we heard about last month.

If you're unfamiliar with the game, Steins;Gate Elite is a fully remastered version of the original 2009 visual novel with animated scenes from the anime included to create an "immersive experience". It follows a group of young, tech-savvy “lab members” who discover a way to change the past via e-mail using a modified microwave (yes, seriously), but their experiments in pushing the boundaries of time begin to spiral out of control, and they soon become entangled in a conspiracy surrounding SERN, an organisation behind the Large Hadron Collider, and John Titor, who claims to be from a dystopian future.


As mentioned above, this limited edition of the game will be available on 19th February 2019 - the same day as the title's scheduled release.

Are you excited for this one?
