One of the most anticipated visual novel releases in the Western market is Steins;Gate, and now it’s available for pre-order! The game was one of multiple unveiled by JAST USA at Anime Expo 2013 and is currently pegged for the coming Winter season (2013-2014).
Right now, pre-orders are open for both the Limited Edition and digital version. There will be no “standard” physical version of the game during launch. So what comes with the Steins;Gate Limited Edition? It includes the game, user manual, original fanbook, and pin. This all comes encased in a deluxe box with satin matte finish. You can secure a copy for $59.95.
If that’s too expensive, or space shelf isn’t available, then that’s where the digital copies come in. This option is a fair bit cheaper at $39.95. Although the price might seem high for digital, it is a steal compared to the price the visual novel tends to command in Japan.
