Following in the footsteps of predecessor Chaos;Head, Nitroplus and 5pb’s Steins;Gate has been making quite a name for itself among critics and consumers in Japan. As of January, the game had sold over 50,000 copies on the Xbox 360 alone, and is slated to be released on the PC on August 28th.

 

Considering Chaos;Head was successful enough for an anime adaptation based on the game to be greenlit, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Steins;Gate is receiving its own animated series as well.

 

The news comes via 5pb’s Twitter account. No further details regarding the series have been announced yet, but we’ll keep you posted. For reference, Chaos;Head was animated by Madhouse and eventually licensed by Funimation in North America.
