Developed by CyberConnect2, .hack// is a multimedia franchise that includes several 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, GU game focuses on Haseo’s quest for the 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 the experience back, with tweaks that streamlined the experience and brought it up to more modern quality expectations.

.hack//GU Latest recode is currently available on PlayStation 4, PC via Steam and Nintendo Switch.
