Steins;Gate 0 is set the original Steins;Gate’s Beta timeline after one of the more unfortunate endings. An array of new characters end up entering the lives of the Future Gadget Laboratory members as they cope with the previous game’s events. While people like Rintaro Okabe and Mayuri Shiina are familiar returning faces, PQube has released character profiles to some of the new people who’ll make an impact on their lives.
Not ‘the’ Kurisu, ‘a’ Kurisu. This is the Kurisu of Amadeus, all her thoughts and memories in an AI program that Okabe can interact with.
A senior at the same university that Kurisu attended in the United States – and an old friend. She looks very young and is often mistaken as a child, despite being in her twenties. She works for Alexis Leskinen and visits Japan with him.
University professor and mentor of Makise Kurisu and an expert in research in brain function. He brings his assistant Maho to Japan to give lectures on the Amadeus System.
A good friend of Mayuri and a character who’s predestined to be involved with one of the original cast. She’s a big fan of cosplay.
Her real parents and real name are unknown. She is the adopted daughter of Mayuri – who takes her under her wing after meeting her through her work at an orphanage.
Psychology Research Institute professor and a colleague of Leskinen. She has a fairly blunt, straight talking personality.
Sporty and athletic, she does have a more girly side through her persona ‘Fubuki’ – a fellow cosplayer and friend of Mayuri.
The last of Mayuri’s cosplaying friends and she makes costumes for Mayuri.
Steins;Gate 0 will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Europe on November 25, 2016. It will arrive in North America on November 29, 2016.
