It’s been six years since an earthquake leveled the city of Shibuya in Chaos;Child, and it looks like the vending machine economy is finally starting to recover. Thanks for the screenshots, SalarymanDaishi!
The recent 8-BIT ADV STEINS;GATE isn’t the first 1980s-themed Steins;Gate demake. These screenshots are from 2011’s Steins;Gate: Variant Space Octet, and they recreate scenes from the original Steins;Gate — soda machines and all — in the style of the NEC PC-88.
Steins;Gate Elite was released in the US yesterday, and the Switch version includes an 8-bit reimagining of the original Steins;Gate as a bonus. These screenshots recreate a scene previously archived in this entry, soda machines and all.
Visual novel Steins;Gate is set in Akihabara, so it’s not surprising that it features its fair share of drink machines.
There are soda machines hiding amidst the Akihabara crowds in Steins;Gate.
