ROBOTICS;NOTES ELITE & DaSH Double Pack offers two stellar visual novels for the price of one! Together in this Double Pack, both games are coming to the West for the first time. In ROBOTICS;NOTES ELITE, play as Kaito Yashio, one of the last two members of Central Tanegashima High's Robot Research Club. He kicks back and relax as his counterpart, the reckless club leader Akiho Senomiya, strives to complete their giant robot in order to keep the club from being disbanded. But Kaito's days of relaxation end with the discovery of the mysterious Kimijima Report. It contains instructions involving locations all across the island—and warns of a conspiracy targeting the entire world. In ROBOTICS;NOTES DaSH, the island of Tanegashima is preparing for the Summer Festival. Through Nae Tennouji, an acquaintance from Jaxa, Kaito Yashio is introduced to Itaru Hashida from the STEINS;GATE series. Itaru claims to be taking a tour of the island, but as time goes on he starts acting rather strangely... Meanwhile, unsettling incidents begin to occur all around them; harbingers of an event that will again plunge the world into chaos. ROBOTICS;NOTES Double Pack Day One Edition includes 2 never-before-released games and 4 collectible limited edition pin badges! The pin set features Kaito, Akiho, and their Tanegashi Machine from ROBOTICS;NOTES ELITE, and Daru from DaSH—only available in the Day One Edition of the Double Pack. Don't miss out on this exclusive Science Adventure series merchandise!

Got these on the black Friday sale for $40, I know it was only a couple months later but I full-on wasn't expecting to get the day-one pins. I feel bad that a few buyers had some bad luck with their pins but mine were totally intact & I have absolutely no issues with the box they come in. These games are spoiler heavy & they are sequels to the other Science Adventure games: Chaos;Head, Chaos;Child, Steins;Gate, & Steins;Gate 0 (with a few other spin offs I personally don't think are as integral to the overarching plot). I'm actually not done with even R;N Elite yet, but I wanted to criticize the localization a little bit. I know nothing of the process, I'm sure there are several hurdles to cross. But for a story with such a slow start, it's very off-putting to have the character models frequently doing the exact opposite of what the narration is conveying. For example there's times when Akiho is supposedly making eye contact with Kai according to his pov, but right when he describes this is the exact moment Akiho's model looks off to the side. Several moments like this including a character is supposed to smile & it doesn't happen at all, etc. Makes me wonder about the consistency of the translation. There's also a stupid amount of times Kai says "correcto", nothing against Spanish but it just makes no sense why he would say that & I'm not even sure what the implied Japanese version of this would be since it's just so strange to imagine a Japanese character randomly saying a confirmation in Spanish. Other than all that, there's lots of weird descriptions in the "tips" section, which is a Science Adventure staple. Most notably, several of Frau's silly internet lingo integrated into her Japanese mostly seems translated well, but many of the tips suggest that the terminology she uses is exclusive to being used in the early 2000's. Internet lingo such as "lol" or "noob", which are used frequently even today. It's funny that Frau's nerdy dialect raises some eyebrows, but it's a bit nonsensical that Kai couldn't understand many of the mannerisms since he's a gamer & since most of the high school characters use "Twipo", the Sci Adv equivalent of Twitter. I'm unsure if these inconsistencies are due to the original script being like this or if it's another translation issue. These are VERY tiny nitpicks, & it hasn't really taken away from my enjoyment of the games. I enjoyed all the other games in this series & I'm very glad to be able to play these finally.
Another sci-fi visual novel taking a journey from a robotics club. Comes with the complete series and a set of pins for the day one edition. The story and artwork is really well done and enjoyable. If you like Steins Gate I would say give this a try. It has a different feel of course but it gives a nice science vibe that feels a little bit familiar.
The games are great and I was really excited to see an english release. My main issue is with the day one edition - pins were scratched up and had tons of fingerprints on them. One of the backers on a pin is loose. This is fixable- but I really don't recommend this edition due to the state of the merchandise. Hopefully they'll release the game by itself soon.
Robtics;Notes was okay good slice of life series and not much of a problem, but when peoples mouth's are bigger than their lips I get scared... DASH on the other hand was pretty terrible... 30 year old daru with a wife and kid acting worse than 19 year old Daru from steins;gate.. really stupid
Ok, first off, never played these games but I am excited to play these games. That's why I gave the item four stars but there two things that hold it back from five stars and that is the fact that neither of the games can collect gold points for you Nintendo account (this part I don't mind too much) and whoever created this pin box must love annoying people because it's so frustrating to get these pins out without harming the box, this part really annoys me. Oh yeah just mention both games come on the cartridge.
Love this visuals novel!
Great product although im really disappointed one of the pins came broken i opened it and the daru pin was already broken.
Llego dos días antes de lo estimado y en buenas condiciones. Incluye los pins de colección y el juego con los dos juegos para descargar usando el disco. Sí funciona el “remote control” aunque la caja no lo indica.
