    Why is ordering from jlist for international shipping for the exact same game from presumably the exact same country cost ASTRONOMICALLY higher than it would for ordering from here? I mean, it’s $44 (!!) for airmail it says on there as opposed to the more reasonable price on here…

    There’s no way it costs that much to ship. I’d prefer to order it from for the above reason of being charged later, but otherwise I’ll have to wait and possibly miss the initial print run… Which is a darn shame.

    @Sasquatch: J-List is probably calculating for EMS, which is expensive. What country? I’ll make sure it’s right.

    @Sasquatch: The cheapest shipping option to the UK is Economy, which should be about $16 for one game.

    Is there an exact release date on this yet?

    Any one ordering in UK I would advise the UK seller UP1 (United Publications) since you avoid the extra tax cost of 20% on imports outside EU and the crazy shipping cost. It is £42 with PP should be no more than £50 and you are still supporting JAST releases. I have used them for many years.;Gate+DVD-Rom+Game+Windows+Limited+Edition

    @Steins;Gate Fan: The target is this winter, which is to say by late February – early March.

    Is the visual novel much different from the anime TV series? What about the movie that came out this year in Japan ~ does anyone know if the visual novel goes into things from the movie?

  13. Tarage

    The Visual Novel came first. It has multiple different routes, and many more potential endings than the anime. It also has a lot more depth and explanation that the anime was forced to gloss over due to the limited nature of it’s episode count.

    The OVA(Episode 25) and the movie however are completely new and not a part of the Visual Novel.

    Ohayo, got a small question since I didn’t find the solution anywhere on this website: Do you have a contact for press-inquiries? Because I’d like to know if you ship out review-versions for press-people Cheers

    Hi, I can’t seem to preorder steins;gate on the jast website. I’m stuck at the shipping method column where it says “Sorry, no quotes are available for this order at this time.”

    Thank you! I’ve been wanting to play an English version of this game for a while now, and because of you guys I finally have a chance to do so. Pre-ordered the limited edition because just YES on the badges. It will also allow me to cosplay so much easier! I can’t wait. But I have a question. What email will the code come from? I don’t want the code to go into my junk mail by accident!
