Steins;Gate Elite for the West Delayed Until Early 2019

Steins;Gate Elite — an updated re-telling of the 2009 and acclaimed visual novel Steins;Gate — has been delayed into early next year for both North America & Europe. The news came during a recent Spike Chunsoft panel during this year’s Anime Expo held in Los Angeles. Elite will factor in cutscenes from the anime rendition of the game alongside brand new animation and touched-up artwork to accompany the upcoming remaster.

While the game is releasing on the Vita in Japan, the handheld iteration is getting dropped when it eventually makes its way over to Western shores. Steins;Gate Elite is planned to launch across PS4, Switch & PC. Its Japanese release remains penned for September 20.
