STEINS;GATE ELITE is fully remastered with animated scenes from the anime, creating a perfectly new, immersive experience.

Their experiments in pushing the boundaries of time begin to spiral out of control as they become entangled in a conspiracy surrounding SERN, the organization behind the Large Hadron Collider, and John Titor, who claims to be from a dystopian future.
