During the Tokyo MX rebroadcast of the 2011 sci-fi thriller anime Steins;Gate on Thursday, the 23rd episode of the series was replaced with an alternative version which branches from the anime's original conclusion.
The new 23rd episode, titled "Kyoukaimenjou no Missing Link," leads into the story of the upcoming Steins;Gate 0 visual novel. That game will go on sale on December 10 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. The new 23rd episode will be included in the Steins;Gate Complete Blu-ray Box, which is scheduled to be released on February 5, 2016.
Steins;Gate is adapted from the second installment of the science adventure visual novel series by 5pb. and Nitroplus.
The upcoming Steins;Gate 0 visual novel follows the β (beta) world timeline of the story.
