On the official website for visual novel sequel Steins;Gate 0 a mysterious countdown has appeared.

The countdown is in the style of the divergence meter, a device from the first game which can measure the ‘divergence value’ of the current world line in relation to the absolute world line of zero. The background appears to show Mayuri Shiina slapping Rintarou Okabe.

At the time of writing the countdown will reach zero in less than five days. Anyone want to take any guesses as to what’ll happen when it reaches zero?

In other news, some new screenshots for the game have also been released by 5pb – check them out in the gallery below.

Steins;Gate 0 releases December 10th in Japan, with no news yet on a Western localization.
