It’s not often that gamers in the western hemisphere get excited about the release trailer for a Japanese visual novel game, but this is one of those rare occasions.
ROBOTICS;NOTES Double Pack contains both ROBOTICS;NOTES ELITE and ROBOTICS;NOTES DaSH, two games centred around the Steins;Gate universe. What is Steins;Gate I hear you ask? Only the best ever, most highly regarded visual novel game of all time. So much so, I think Steins;Gate could possibly be one of the best ever stories about time travel regardless of the medium. (Seriously just go play it already!)
So, when two more games based upon the Steins;Gate universe arrive, it’s time to sit up and take notice.
“Two New Games, Two New Adventures! – Join the Robot Club and explore the island of Tanegashima. Featuring over 60 hours of gameplay between ROBOTICS:NOTES ELITE and ROBOTICS;NOTES DaSH.
Unlock the Secrets Hidden on Tanegashima – Both games feature intricate, branching storylines. Unlock them all to see the full story of the Robot Club’s adventures.
Together, both ROBOTICS;NOTES ELITE and ROBOTICS;NOTES DaSH are coming to the West for the first time in ROBOTICS;NOTES DOUBLE PACK, complete with a collector’s set of 4 pin badges.
The island of Tanegashima is preparing for the Summer Festival. Through Nae Tennouji, an acquaintance from JAXA, Kaito Yashio is introduced to Itaru Hashida from the STEINS;GATE series. Itaru claims to be taking a tour of the island, but as time goes on he starts acting rather strangely… Meanwhile, unsettling incidents begin to occur all around them; harbingers of an event that will again plunge the world into chaos.
Play as Kaito Yashio, one of the last two members of Central Tanegashima High’s Robot Research Club. He kicks back and relaxes as his counterpart, the reckless club leader Akiho Senomiya, strives to complete their giant robot in order to keep the club from being disbanded. But Kaito’s days of relaxation end with the discovery of the mysterious Kimijima Report. It contains instructions involving locations all across the island—and warns of a conspiracy targeting the entire world.“
ROBOTICS;NOTES Double Pack is scheduled for worldwide release on the Playstation 4, Windows PC and Nintendo Switch on the 13th October 2020.
