Whoops! Wrong movie.

Earlier today, Funimation announced that they’ve scheduled the North American release of Steins;Gate – The Movie – Load Region of Déjà Vu (Steins;Gate Fuka Ryōiki no Déjà vu). The film will hit retailers in 2017, though a specific date has yet to be announced.

Steins;Gate – The Movie – Load Region of Déjà Vu originally hit Japanese theaters in April 2013. The feature reunited the original TV show’s cast and crew for an original story. Kanji Wakabayashi (Kai Doh Maru) directed the feature at White Fox, with chief directors Hiroshi Hamasaki and Takuya Satō. Kyuta Sakai (When They Cry – Higurashi, Selector Infected Wixoss) provided character designs, while
Jukki Hanada (Love Live!, Robotics;Notes) wrote the screenplay.

Funimation originally announced that they acquired the film in 2014. The movie is set after the TV series’ “true end.”
