PQube has announced a collector’s edition for upcoming visual novel STEINS;GATE, dubbed the El Psy Kongroo edition, a term which fans of the game or anime will be familiar with.
I’m personally a huge fan of the anime but never played the game as it was on PC, so I’m excited to have it come to PS3 and Vita, although I feel that Vita is a better fit for visual novels as you can use them like a book of sorts.
