A new visual novel titled Steins;Gate 0 and an anime adaptation of it were announced today. The news came in addition to the ChäoS;Child anime announcement during 5pb's live stream today, held by representative Chiyomaru Shikura.

This game will be a sequel to the visual novel Steins;Gate and will also incorporate content from the Epigraph Trilogy of light novels/manga (Heiji Kyokusen no Epigraph, Eigou Kaiki no Pandora, and Mugen Enten no Arutaeru) and the drama CDs.
This latest installment of the series will be the first to have a numbering title.

Steins;Gate was previously adapted into a TV anime series in 2011 and a movie in 2013.

Meh. It feels like it will be in the same vain of the movie, a cash grab, and milking.

Not looking forward to it.

Although after thinking it over, I also have some mixed thoughts about this now considering how well S;G ended.

Can't wait; I've been watching the teaser trailer over and over for the past fifteen minutes! I just hope it doesn't go the route of the movie, though.

Colour me excited.
And what if all love is an act of bravery?

Could you look me in the eye and say that you are not afraid?

Exactly my thoughts.
A beta world line sounds pretty interesting but I'm not sure if it's really necessary.

I'll stay cautiously sceptical since this is outside the original VN's script, and is based on various novels and drama CDs instead

YES

Now to decide between VN or anime version...
Would much rather play VN but something tells me it won't get TL till way after the anime and idk if I can dodge spoilers that long

This is dumb, the story is finished and the movie already felt like a tacked on addition that barely enhanced the experience. What can a sequel possibly bring to the table that doesn't feel like a forced attempt to milk it?

And while I agree that it was overall a somewhat decent series, the immense hype about the show ever since I watched it weekly back then continues to suprise me.

The hype train just passed by and it was a BIG one.

I will give it a try if it is not a useless sequel. But if it is, eh.

Never would have seen this coming, not in a million years. But now that it is, I am so excited! If this can even be close to being as good as the original I'll be happy, but I do confess to having very slight reservations considering how well Steins;Gate ended.

Just to clarify something. This is not a true sequel (neither was the movie because it's not canon and shouldn't be considered as such), because it's only the continuation of the world line where he failed to save Kurisu, and how he will start working on the video mail.

Please don't state it as an actual sequel...

That said, I'm skeptical, because all these spin-offs have a huge chance at fucking up the established rules of the world and by that messing up the whole story :/ I won't consider it canon unless they truly don't make any mistake.

Excited for this. While both the OVA and the movie didn't add much to the story (other than a few inconsistencies), I've always been quite interested in Okabe's life
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

But why? The series ended beautifully with the film, there isnt really a need for a sequel. Oh well lets see how it goes.

Good, good. Hope the sequel is as good or even better than the original. I will be calm about this one, don't want to feel disappointed when it starts to air.

It is still a spin-off. The Epigraph Trilogy explained the future of that world line, which we didn't have to sit through thanks to how the world of S;G works. It's not an actual part of the main story, therefore it is a spin-off.

I have no idea why they would call it a sequel when it actually happens "before" the ending.
It is a sequel of that world line, but not a sequel of the Steins;Gate world line. It's 1.129848%.

Love Steins;Gate. One of my top 5 anime, but this is one of those series that doesn't ever need a sequel. the way it ended was a master piece. Plus the movie made it even more beautiful. I will check it out but this just seems like a cash grab by Nitroplus.

If it's β timeline, wouldn't that mean Hasida is a hunk and the head of the resistance?

I still wouldn't want a world without The Zombie Assistant.

This will be one of those times that I sit back and let others watch and review it. The ending was pleasant enough for me and if the new project detracts from it, then I will let others eat the anguish instead of me.

This is great news, although I think a new installment isn't necessary is totally welcome. We can only expected to have the same quality as the previous works... It will be very interesting to see this part of the story, I really hope that is represented brilliantly. They will be very careful, I think and I hope.
