  1. image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/DH0nrf8VwAEeazR_thumb.jpg Bandai Namco shared some new bits of information in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine on .hack//G.U. Last Recode with a look at Haseo’s new weapon that is exclusive to his 5th form. The weapon is called “Gate of Ouroboros” and it is only available for Haseo’s new 5th form. The weapon can change form, and each one determines which of the eight arts it can use along with a variety of combos. It also has a secret “Skill Trigger” combo activation ability, but we’ll learn more on that later. .hack//G.U. Last Recode releases in Japan on November 1, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC. The game releases in North America and Europe this fall. Check out our previous report for a look at the latest screenshots. Read more stories about .hack//G.U.

  3. We recently learned that .hack//G.U. Last Recode will include a brand new Vol. 4 episode that tells us what happened after the events of Vol. 3//Redemption. Here are more details from this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Hachima.] The new volume, called Vol. 4 Perhaps a Dream of the World-Weaving Snakes is a completely new episode that tells us what happened after the events of the original trilogy. Here are some highlights from the magazine: Story For the first time in a year and three months, Haseo logs into The World R:2, and he discovers a frozen Ovan in a cavern located at Q’ha Holme. He attempts to break the ice to no avail, and learns that he currently doesn’t have the power to melt the ice.

Kusabira (CV: Sumie Morohoshi) A mysterious girl who suddenly appears before Haseo, and appears to know about the happenings at the Q’ha Holme caverns.

  4. It’s been 15 years since the start of the .hack series and this year also happens to be when .hack//G.U. takes place, and with stars aligned we’re getting a remaster on PS4. Here’s a summary of what’s new. image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/027_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/032_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/034_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/042_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/040_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/036_thumb-1.jpg .hack//G.U. Last Recode will have everything at much higher resolutions in full-HD 1080p with a 16:9 screen ratio, and will even support 4K resolution and 60fps gameplay. image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/010_thumb-4.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/011_thumb-4.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/012_thumb-4.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/015_thumb-3.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/013_thumb-4.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/016_thumb-4.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/014_thumb-3.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/017_thumb-3.jpg You’ll also get to see some iconic event scenes with the improved movie resolutions (with the exception of some parts). image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/018_thumb-2.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/019_thumb-2.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/020_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/022_thumb-2.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/021_thumb-2.jpg In addition to prettier scenes, the games are getting an increase in resolution for backgrounds and UI textures. image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/023_thumb-2.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/024_thumb-1.jpg Shadows have also been improved to give us a better sense of reality, as well as the new anti-aliasing that smoothens out character polygons. Next, here are some of the new features: image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/025_thumb-1.jpg The new “Cheat Mode” is being added so that fans who already played the game and just want to revisit the scenario can go through the game with ease and no grind by starting the game with max stats in this mode. image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/026_thumb-1.jpg Unlike the PS2 version that made you go back to the title screen upon wiping out in battle, a new “Retry” function will allow you to start the battle from the beginning. Battle balance and tempo is another area of improvement, starting with movement speed which has been increased to make exploring easier. In order to improve on the battle tempo and make it as stress-free possible, they’ve increased the number of damage you deal to enemies. The amount of damage enemies inflict hasn’t been changed. Another area of improvement is the hitstop reduction so that your attacks won’t feel as slow while fighting. Experience points from battles have also been increased so you can level up your party at a smoother pace. You can get the more details on game system improvements and additions in our earlier report. image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/028_thumb-1.jpg Bandai Namco says they have some more new elements to announce for the remaster later. Last but not least, here’s a look at the key characters and a bunch of new screenshots: Haseo (CV: Takahiro Sakurai) Class: Adept Rogue (Multi-Weapon) image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/029_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/027_thumb-2.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/030_thumb-1.jpg Ovan (CV: Hiuroki Tochi) Class: Steam Gunner image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/031_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/032_thumb-2.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/033_thumb-1.jpg … … Class: Tri-Edge image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/035_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/034_thumb-2.jpg Atoli (CV: Ayako Kawasumi) Class: Harvest Cleric image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/038_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/036_thumb-2.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/037_thumb-1.jpg Kuhn (CV: Shinichiro Miki) Class: Steam Gunner image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/041_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/040_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/039_thumb.jpg Pi Class: Tribal Grappler image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/044_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/042_thumb-1.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/043_thumb.jpg Endrance (CV: Mitsuki Saiga) Class: Blade Brandier image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/047_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/045_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/046_thumb.jpg SakuBo (CV: Megumi Toyoguchi) Class: Shadow Warlock image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/050_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/048_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/049_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/051_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/052_thumb.jpg Yata (CV: Takumi Yamazaki) Class: Dancer image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/054_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/053_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/055_thumb.jpg Silabus (CV: Daisuke Sakaguchi) Class: Blade Brandier image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/058_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/056_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/057_thumb.jpg Gaspard (CV: Akiko Yajima) Class: Shadow Warlock image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/061_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/059_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/060_thumb.jpg Alkaid (CV: Masumi Asano) Class: Twin Blade image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/062_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/063_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/064_thumb.jpg .hack//G.U. releases in North America and Europe in late 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Famitsu has provided a look at its first screenshots. image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/l_593fd5d708a37_thumb.jpg image: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/l_593fd5d70a996_thumb.jpg From 2006 to 2007, Vol. 1 through Vol. 3 of .hack//G.U. released on PlayStation 2.

  9. Bandai Namco revealed .hack//G.U. Last Recode, an HD remaster of the PS2 RPG series. Here’s some more info on what’s new in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Hachima.] The info has been sorted into three “evolution points” in the bullet notes below. Evolution Point 1 – Major Visual Evolution Full-HD (1080p) High-definition movies Supports 60fps High-definition backgrounds and UI Evolution Point 2 – Game System Improvements Added retry function Cheat Mode (Play with maxed out level and equipment) Movement speed increased Item slot number increased to 90 Item menu shortcut and sort functions added Certain items have consecutive usage function Made easier to see empty equipment slots Chim Sphere and Virus Core possession cap at 999 Reduced probability of allies selling off items you give them Improvements that were made in Vol. 2: Reminisce and Vol. 3: Redemption will be reflected on Vol. 1: Rebirth in the HD Remaster. Battle tempo increased with a rise in offensive ability and reduction in hitstop. Weapon skill up rates increased Increase in experience points gained Some powerful enemies have been mitigated Skeith’s shooting speed has been increased Avatar battles have been rebalanced In addition to being able to redo the Marriage Events in Vol. 3: Redemption, you’ll get to do it with all characters that become party members Evolution Point 3 – New Elements Added All movies from the Terminal Disk that was bundled with the special edition copy of .hack//G.U. Vol. 1: Rebirth will be included. Haseo with an unfamiliar look appears… And finally, here’s a bit from the interview with Hiroshi Matsuyama of CybcerConnect2 and Bandai Namco’s Daisuke Uchiyama: 2017 is the 15th anniversary since the release of .hack, and 10 years since the conclusion of G.U., and it also happens to be the year G.U. takes place. That said, it was decided that this year must be one for a reboot. The reason they’re going with a remaster instead of a brand new title is because it’s been a while but more importantly to introduce a younger generation of fans to the .hack series. While it is a remaster, it feels like they’re mostly remaking everything. All three volumes will be playable. As one of the new elements, players will meet Haseo “for the first time.’ And finally, there are other plans in the works for the .hack series’ 15th anniversary. .hack//G.U. Last Recode is in development for PlayStation 4 and PC. A Release date hast yet to be announced. Read more stories about .hack//G.U. Last Recode & PC & PlayStation 4 on Siliconera.
