Haseo & co. return in a remastered adventure
Fans of the .hack series are in for some good news today, as Bandai Namco has revealed in this week’s issue of Famitsu that .hack//GU Last Recode in development for PC and PlayStation 4 in celebration of the series’ 15th Anniversary.
Last Recode is a completely remastered version of the original .hack//G.U. trilogy — .hack//G.U. Vol.1//Rebirth, .hack//G.U. Vol.2//Reminisce, and .hack//G.U. Vol.3//Redemption. All three games will be playable, and in HD.
Last Recode will also feature various improvements to help implement gameplay. While details are sparse, these improvements will supposedly make parts of the game (presumably combat) feel faster and more fluid. New content not seen in the original G.U. games is also in the works for this upcoming HD remake.
Currently, .hack//G.U. Last Recode has only been confirmed in Japan, and has yet to receive a release date. Considering that this game is coming out to celebrate 15 years of the .hack franchise however, there’s a decent chance that the game will be making its way over here sometime in the future. What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you think that Last Recode will eventually make its way overseas? If it does, do you plan on picking it up? Let us know in the comments below!
