5pb has revealed that Steins;Gate won’t be hitting North American shores very quickly after its European debut.

Though it’s true that you can order the UK version of Steins;Gate from anywhere in the world and have it shipped to you free via Rice Digital, many North Americans either aren’t into the hassle of importing or are simply waiting for the digital version of the game to hit their stores – the only problem is when.

Well, some good news and some bad has been revealed in one fell swoop; Steins;Gate now has an official North American release date… and it’s August 25th, a date nearly three months after the European release.
Can you wait that long for your own “US” version, or is it time to bite the bullet and import?Only you can decide.

  • Preordered the special edition from Rice Digital 🙂 I can wait haha

    Hey, I was wondering if there is any chance this game will be Dubed in English? The only visual novel i’ve played is Virtues Last Reward. And I was a big fan. So i wanna jump into more of em. But i feel i might of been a bit spoiled by it as most games on the vita seem to keep the Japanese Dub only.

      No, it certainly won’t have an english dub.

        Dang! Thanks for the responce

      If dub’s are that important to you, then buy Dangan Ronpa 1 & 2, both are Visual Novels!
