Chiyomaru Shikura explained both the Steins:Gate Hollywood movie and Steins;Gate Zero Elite are going well, but both still have no release date estimate.
On October 25, Mages held a live stream and talk show event for the Science Adventure Series, with a new trailer for Steins;Gate Zero Elite. However, the game still has no release date estimate or platforms announced. On the event, Mages President Chiyomaru Shikura said the game’s development is going well. They’re using the same engine as Steins;Gate Elite but upgraded. What’s taking the most time is making anime scenes for all the routes not shown in the anime.
Furthermore, Chiyomaru Shikura also gave us an update regarding the upcoming Steins;Gate Hollywood movie. He said he’s exchanging daily with the movie’s staff regarding the plot and various aspects, but there are many things he still can’t reveal yet.
You can watch the new trailer for Steins;Gate Zero Elite at the 1:24:47 timestamp linked below:
Steins;Gate Zero Elite was first announced alongside the Steins;Gate Hollywood movie project on January 26, 2020, during the series’ tenth anniversary stream event.
Elite games by Mages are remakes that are fully animated, using scenes from the anime adaptation and new anime scenes made for the occasion. The first one of the kind was Steins;Gate Elite, first released in 2018. In an interview we translated, Chiyomaru Shikura said he wants to make similar Elite games for Madoka Magika, Your Name and Evangelion.
The event also featured three seiyuu: Asami Imai (Kurisu Makise), Mamoru Miyano (Rintarou Okabe), and Tomokazu Seki (Itaru Hashida). So it’s definitely worth watching in full if you’re a Steins;Gate fan who has some Japanese knowledge. A new sequel for Steins;Gate was also announced. You can read the details here.
