App description: Since 2009, the STEINS; GATE series has sold over 1,000,000 copies!

"STEINS;GATE", based on the anime currently being broadcast has finally been released for iPhone and iPod touch!


* The game supports English only.

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.)!

* OP movie and end sequence based on the Xbox 360 version.

Early imps
Japanese voice overs with English subs which is what I hoped for! There are screen borders see attached pic but graphics still nice
From what I gather this is exact same version as Xbox 360 version
Japanese graphic novel style game and your choices are big time huge to the story with this one
The story of this game is one of my fav ever which is why I'm a big fan of the show
If you love steins;gate you will be fine with this game

Yeah I can't play much at moment
At work but when I get off I will dive in big time

To me it's totally worth the price I can see some people passing on it for that reason
But it's the full game you can play with 6 diff characters giving you several diff outcomes and a lot of gameplay hours.

I just bought this. Have been waiting on it for a while. I'm a new "fan" of Steins;Gate in that I have watched the pilot of the anime and loved everything about it. But now I plan on going through this game, before moving on with the anime. Is that sound?

You guys won't believe that I've been checking for this game for the past 3 days in the appstore every day, every few hours for this to show up. I was so hyped when I knew it was coming out on the 9th that I kept checking to see if it would "release early". Turns out it comes out after I go to bed... funny.

So anyhow, dropping the $25 now. I hope I have enough room on my device. Going to need that new bigger iP7 soon!

Also interesting that the other language versions just dropped in price last night and this one is normal priced. Not sure how that works.. I'm surprised Korea got all the other side stories translated to their language and are already released!

Wait, I just realized this is an iPhone app when I started it up. It all looks a bit pixelated blown up on an iPad Pro. Why is there no iPad version? They probably won't update it to be Universal either.

I read they're supposed to be releasing an HD ipad version. Not sure if it's out yet or not. But it was on some of the news sites. I think the original Japanese version also has an HD version.

Yeah it does. Oh man, I hope they update this one to Universal, but they'll probably release a separate HD version...
