Developed by CyberConnect2, .hack// is a multimedia franchise that includes multiple games, anime, manga, and novels. While the original PS2 quadrology took place in the fictional VRMMORPG The World:R1 and followed the adventures of Kite and Black Rose, the G.U. games focus on Haseo’s search for Tri-Edge in the revised The World R:2.

Besides the new fourth entry, the remastered collection includes improved gameplay, higher-resolution graphics, and new character models. This consists of a better frame rate and fixes to some systems that initially held back the experience, with adjustments that streamlined the experience and made it up to par with more modern quality expectations.

.hack//G.U. Last Recode is currently available on PlayStation 4, PC via Steam and Nintendo Switch.
