Many people attribute the .hack series with starting the whole “stuck in a video game/fantasy realm” genre and in many ways it also began the type of episodic nature that we see games today as each of the core storylines spanned across three different games. Thankfully it seems that Bandai Namco is going to delve back into the series as they have announced through the latest issue of Famitsu that they are working on releasing .hack//G.U. Last Recode for the PlayStation 4 and PC. This will be an HD remaster of the entire PlayStation 2 RPG series originally developed by CyberConnect2.
The title is being made partly due to the 15th anniversary of the series and as we’ve learned through the latest information, will feature a number of improved features as well as the standard graphical upgrades. This includes various things such as an increase to movement speed, item menu shortcuts, increasing the maximum number of items you can hold, applying various improvements made in the second and third game to the first game, and more.
