Original story [Thu 10th Mar, 2022 10:30 GMT]: The next release in the Science Adventure series, which includes Steins;Gate Elite and Robotics;Notes Elite, is coming out in English on Switch on 7th October, according to Canadian retailer VideoGamesPlus.
The Chaos;Head Noah / Chaos;Child Double Pack, just like ROBOTICS;NOTES Double Pack, comes with two games in this popular visual novel franchise. What's most notable about this pack is that, while Chaos;Child has already had an English release on PS4, Chaos;Head Noah has not.
It looks like there's going to be a Steelbook edition for the game, with newly drawn art for the lead character, Rimi and Serika. It also includes some bonus costume DLC for Chaos;Head Noah.
While this hasn't been confirmed by publisher Spike Chunsoft or developer MAGES, it seems pretty likely that this retail listing is true, as MAGES was only just teasing details of an English release a few weeks ago. And, you know, there's a trailer and everything. So expect an official announcement from the publisher pretty soon!
Here's what to expect from the double pack:
The CHAOS series finally arrives on Nintendo Switch™ with this 2-games-in-1 double pack!
CHAOS;HEAD NOAH - Play as Takumi and use your "Delusion" to find the truth about a serial murder case called “New Generation Madness". Your delusion will change the endings!
CHAOS;CHILD - Play as Takuru and explore Shibuya in 2015, after an earthquake nearly leveled the city six years prior, and try to outsmart the puppet-master behind this New Generation Madness.

delusion take you?

The Switch has become a bit of a home for visual novels, and the Science Adventure series contains some of the best of the genre, so we can't wait to see what this pack brings.
