Developed by CyberConnect2, .hack// is a multimedia franchise that includes multiple games, anime, manga, and novels. While the original PS2 quadrilogy 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 includes 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 will be available on Switch on March 10, 2022. The game is currently available on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.
