Future Gadgets Team Travels Through Time in Steins;Gate


Steins;Gate fans are keen on the series, offering a new spin on the well-worn concept of time travel. That popularity is sure to grow even more with UDON Entertainment planning to release the first two volumes in the series. Those volumes will be localized into English for the first time.

Anime and game fans have already fallen in love with Steins;Gate, a wildly successful, critically-acclaimed science-fiction thriller that provides a fresh, unique spin on the oft-explored subject of time travel. Now, the Steins;Gate phenomenon is set to spread like wildfire into the world of manga with UDON Entertainment’s release of the first two volumes in the series, localized into English for Western audiences for the very first time!

Based on the original game, the Steins;Gate manga begins with a vital question: what do you get when you cross a microwave with a cell phone? A time machine, of course! Thanks to this wacky experiment, self-proclaimed mad scientist Hououin Kyouma and his Future Gadgets team now have the ability to send text messages into the past. But will this incredible power to alter the past be used for personal gain, to change the world, or for something much more sinister? The answers to these questions as well as the unpredictable consequences of time travel are explored in Steins;Gate, a gripping science-fiction adventure with a comedic edge.

The first two volumes of Steins;Gate are available now in finer comic book shops, book stores and online retailers. Volume 3, the final in the series, is set for release in March 2016. Full press release below.
