The June issue of Tech Gian magazine confirms that Xbox 360 visual novel Steins;Gate is being ported to the PC. The game is the second collaboration between acclaimed developer Nitroplus and developer-cum-record label 5pb. The first major project the two firms collaborated on was Chaos;Head.
Steins;Gate is a sci-fi-esque visual novel that tells the story of a group of friends experimenting with sending messages into the past. Subsequently, they are discovered by a time-travel research organization named SERN, and have to avoid capture. It’s enjoyed a fair amount of critical acclaim in Japan, owing largely to its voice cast and plot.
