The Steins;Gate 0 novel will be released under Kadokawa’s Sneaker Bunko imprint. Visuals for the “Steins;Gate World Line 2017-2018 Project” and Taka Himeno’s manga were also unveiled, along with a trailer. You can check these out below:

The “Steins;Gate World Line 2017-2018 Project” was originally unveiled at this year’s Anime Expo. At the convention, Kadokawa showed off a promotional trailer, which included the Steins;Gate 0 logo, as well as characters Rintarō Okabe and Mayuri Shiina clad in her Steins;Gate 0 outfit. The two are standing before the original Radio Kaikan building, which was devastated by a satellite impact. The trailer hints that the gate between “Zero” and the Beta World (where Rintarō was unable to save “her”) will open.

Steins;Gate 0 is a 2015 follow-up to the original Steins;Gate. The title was released in North America in December 2015 by publisher PQube.
