App description: STEINS;GATE has sold over 1,000,000 copies since 2009!

"STEINS;GATE", based on the anime currently being broadcast has finally been released for iPad!

* This product is only for iPad.
* The game supports Korean only.

- Tag Line
The 12th theory that could even blaspheme God
-- That is a product of chance we obtained.

- Product Summary
STEINS;GATE is the second collaborative work between 5pb and Nitroplus with a science-fiction/adventure theme.
Released on October 2009 for the Xbox 360, it won the highest Famitsu Award (Japanese video game magazine).
Later, the game was released for the PC & PSP, along with additional merchandise such as spin-off video games, character songs and drama CDs. The series has sold more than 100,000 copies.
An anime adaptation began airing on April 2011, and it is becoming increasingly popular.
The story found in STEINS;GATE is not your usual time traveling fare, but is a "hypothetical science adventure" focused on the structure of time travel itself.
Many of the situations and scientific concepts referred to in the game have been plucked from real science; the story-line is therefore credible and intellectual stimulating for players.

- Features
* A suspenseful adventure game based on time travel!
* The story takes place in Akihabara and revolves around science-fiction, touching on subjects such as SERN, John Titor, "IBN5100" PC and more!
* The game features the phone trigger system, optimized for iOS. The plot will progress in a specific direction depending upon the player's choices and responses!
* Play as one of 6 characters with various endings for each! (Including one male character)
* Full voice acting!
* More than 30 hours of total game-play!
* Featuring an original plot by Chiyomaru Shikura, character design by huke, gadget design by SH@RP and scenario development by Naokata Hayashi (5pb.)!

Yes, that's the one. If anybody has sight on the NZ store and can provide some info, it would be appreciated. I probably should have put this in the iPhone thread and linked that version....

The anime is pretty awesome, and I've heard good things about the visual novel game (except that it's not in English). Hopefully this is an English release? The NZ link just opens to the generic "One Moment Please" page in my browser.

You might be right on that. I hadn't realized the visual novel already existed on iOS (in Japanese).

The visual novel has been fan translated already and this app has been around for a year or so =p. If you are jailbroken, there is actually a converted English patch for the iPad port(http://tsuuun.blogspot.sg/2011/11/st...eipodipad.html)..just beware of the lack of word wrapping. I am not sure if the most recent update will break the patch though!

Looks like this wasn't the English release we were all hoping for. This version is Korean only.

This is crazy. Now there are 4 separate steins apps. For this price it is inexcusable why this shouldn't be an universal app. Especially when the file size is the same for both iphone and ipad versions.

Also no english version...
