It Had To Happen…Steins;Gate Heads To PSP


This June, 5pb’s hit visual novel, Steins;Gate, is headed to the PSP. Originally developed for the Xbox 360, Steins;Gate was later ported to the PC and then green-lighted for both anime and novel adaptations.


5pb eventually updated the Xbox 360 version of the game with new features such as additional events, more achievements, and a new introduction song. The PSP version of the game, according to this week’s Famitsu magazine (and website), will include the Xbox 360 DLC and the cosplay patch from the PC version of Steins;Gate.


5pb also recorded a new intro and outro for the game, and assured Famitsu that nothing was cut from the game’s story, even though it was rather harsh. Steins;Gate on PSP is scheduled for release this June.


Meanwhile, Kurisu from Stein;Gate will be making a guest appearance in 5pb’s upcoming fighting game, Phantom Breaker
