After being revealed for a Japanese release during last week’s E3, Bandai Namco has announced it plans to bring .hack//G.U. Last Recode to North America and Europe.
.hack//G.U. Last Recode is a remastered trilogy of the PS2 series .hack//G.U.. The game will be available for PC and PS4. This re-edition will feature all three chapters (Rebirth, Reminisce and Redemption) in 1080p with 16:9 widescreen picture, 60 fps frame rate, gameplay balance changes; among other features to be revealed in coming months leading up to the release.
The remastered trilogy will feature an enhanced battle balance and game pacing along with a new Cheat Mode allowing players who want to just enjoy the story to start the game with full stats.
“The .hack series has been one of the most acclaimed series in the history and we are excited to announce this definitive experience for those who loved the original games and those who haven’t experience them yet,” said Antoine Jamet, Brand Manager Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe. “With the new features that will be part of the title, fans will experience .hack//G.U. like never before with .hack//G.U. Last Recode!”
.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 in a coma in real life.
.hack//G.U. Last Recode will release for PC and PS4 (physical and digital) later this year.
