".hack//G.U. Last Recode" Brings Trio of Action-RPGs Back to the West

The .hack franchise is 15 years old at this point, which means it's time for a celebration. Bandai Namco is getting in on it with plans to release .hack//G.U. Last Recode in the west. This PlayStation 4 and Steam remaster collects all three .hack//G.U. action-RPGs, including Rebirth, Reminiscence, and Redemption, and it's due out later this year.


.hack//G.U. Last Recode updates each entry with 1080p resolution, 16:9 widescreen, 60fps frame rate, changes to the gameplay balance, and other new features that have yet to be announced. 



Official description: 

.hack is a multimedia franchise created and developed by famed Japanese developer CyberConnect2. Comprising of video games, anime, novels, and manga, the world of .hack focuses on the mysterious events surrounding a wildly popular in-universe massively multiplayer role-playing game called The World.  .hack//G.U. begins after the events of the original .hack series with players assuming the role of Haseo as he tracks down a powerful Player Killer named Tri-Edge who killed his friend’s in-game avatar Shino, and put her into a coma in real life.


In addition to offering the .hack//G.U. trilogy, .hack//G.U. Last Recode will also include enhanced battle balance and game pacing to provide an optimal experience as well as a new Cheat Mode enabling players who want to just enjoy the story to start the game with full stats.
