Praise Dr. Pepper: Steins;Gate's special edition includes a Metal Upa


The future has been saved

For a good while, I was on the fence on whether I should play Steins;Gate on the PC or consoles. Now that PQube has announced a special edition for the game's PS3 and PS Vita release, I might have to lean towards the latter for now, since it comes with a freaking Metal Upa.

Aside from the Metal Upa, the Steins;Gate El Psy Kongroo Edition includes an artbook, a few badges, and your very own Future Gadget Lab pins. In other words, if you missed out on the pins from JAST's Limited Edition of the game's PC release, this is your second chance to grab them.

While this limited item is only available on Rice Digital's Website, they're granting free shipping to anyone who orders the item, which is a pretty good deal for anyone outside of the U.K. As for the special edition's price, both the PS3 and Vita version'll cost you £49.99 (around U.S. $79.99), which is a bit weird, since the handheld release would usually be cheaper than the console one.

Last but not least, Steins;Gates heads West in May, which gives us enough time to practice our Kyouma Houounin laugh again. In the mean time, you can pre-order the Steins;Gate El Psy Kongroo Edition here (PS3) and here (PS Vita).
