Steins' gate 29,99 -> 9,99

Just noticed that this app got a significant price decrease.
This is the japanese app but there's an unofficial translation patch that can be installed very easily, even on non-jailbroken idevices. I tried it on the lite version and it worked perfectly without crashes

My only issue is that Steins's gate got an official english release last march. I contacted the publisher (jast usa) and they told me that they are working on an ios port.

I am really hesitating what to do. Buy this one or wait for the official app in english...

The choice is obvious isn't it?

Wait for the price to rise back up again, buy it and support the developer. When the English version comes out. Buy it again for yourself and 30 more English copies. Give the other copies away to Toucharcade users. Remember to reserve a code for me, thanks

Here's the answer I got from Jast USA for those who are curious

9,99 is a really good deal and is the cheapest this app has ever been.

Well if there will be an English version then I may pick this up!
Also there's a new app by the dev so it's the reason for the price drop!

If you watched the anime already, is there still a point in playing the game? Or did the anime sum up a large majority of it?

Just saying the Korean one is on sell too if that mattered. Apprently there is a English patch for the iOS version but I haven't tried it.

Steins;Gate is a visual novel/eroge so while the anime got the basic premise, I'm assuming a lot of "plot" was removed. There are several ending based on your actions and who you choose. I would say it would much like the difference with Fate/Stay with its H scenes (not sure of Steins;Gate but it is more suggestive than the anime).

How did you patch it on a non jailbroken device? I'd like to try this on the lite one and then if it works for me I'll get it on iPhone and iPad. Thanks.
