Funimation have just released today Steins;Gate The Movie: Load Region of Déjà Vu as a Blu-ray and DVD Combi package in North America. This also features the celebrated English dub cast returning to reprise their roles from the series.
Steins;Gate The Movie flips the script a little bit from the main series, with Kurisu this time having to save Okabe from not just death, but complete non-existence. It’s a fan-pleasing extension to the Steins;Gate story, in a way that’s different to the full on sequel that is Steins;Gate 0.
The Steins;Gate movie—and grand finale to the original hit visual novel and anime series—Load Region of Déjà Vu is finally coming to North American Blu-ray and DVD after long anticipation! After being saved by everyone’s favorite mad scientist, now its Kurisu’s turn to save Okabe—not from death, but from nonexistence.
It’s nice to see a follow-up anime series movie that actually ads to the series and the franchise as a whole, rather than just being a cut up and shortened version of the anime series itself. It’s a trend that’s so common that some Steins;Gate fans’ eyes may have glazed over this one, so make sure you don’t!
Steins;Gate the Movie: Load Region of Déjà Vu is out now as a Blu-ray/DVD box set in North America, from Funimation.
