Steins;Gate Zero is coming to the west on both PS4 and Vita, courtesy of PQube, the same publisher that brought over Steins;Gate. Zero is the sequel to 5pb’s excellent visual novel, which starts off slowly but ultimately pays off. No specific release date just yet—they’re saying 2016 for both Europe and the U.S.
