The Steins Gate series is made of 99% science and 1% fantasy. But in this installment, this proportion no longer holds true. The players can have 100% of what they want. The tone becomes lighter, more like a love comedy, see what the characters are up to when they are not doing experiments and creating chaos.

The game has more events and CGs, so discover new sides of characters that are usually hidden by their tough or cheerful exteriors. Get closer to the girls by sending them random emails. The interface becomes even easier to use, so just slide into your white lab coat to start your adventure.

The Limited Edition contains a metal figure of FG204 and a remix soundtrack.

Steins Gate Hiyoku Renri no Darling is available on Xbox360:

Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no DarlingJPN US$ 25.991w
Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Darling [Limited Edition]JPN US$ 81.991-5d




Travel to the depths of insanity with Alice. The butcher knife wielding girl is back in Wonderland, where she might confront her fear and find out what truly happened the night her parents died. The grey, dreary London streets and the vibrant colors in Wonderland contrast sharply, making the sprays of blood even brighter.

Eden is a collection of human memories and a virus is eating it from the inside. Gamers might fly through this world of sensory before the bugs devour everything. Bursting from the director Tetsuya Mizuguchi's mind, Child of Eden is full of fireworks and adrenaline pumping action.

Rebuild the 10th Legion before the great land of Ehb falls apart. Recruit warriors into your team, defeat all manners of beasts and villains and live through a story that only the staff from Square Enix can tell. In Dungeons Siege III, every decision counts, they can either lead your team to glory or to doom.

Duke Nukem is back to make himself into a Legend. The over-the-top hilarious shooter fest will drench gamers with alien entrails. Besides shooting everything down, gamers can enjoy the little "extracurricular activities" such as doodling on the wall, ogling at the beauties that populate the world and read adult magazines.
