Apparently we're getting .hack//G.U. remastered on both PS4 and PC in late 2017.

If anyone's familiar with the .hack// game series, they're creeping up on their 15th anniversary which it seems they're firing out the remastered and enhanced versions of Volumes 1, 2, and 3. Possibly a revival of the public's interest in the games? I wonder if they might have a new one in their thoughts.

Check out the trailer!

Hearing the atmosphere from this game again gives me chills.

Yeah, I heard about this last week, when the teaser in Famitsu started getting coverage from English website. Even so, I'm surprised by how quickly events have been moving. In a matter of days we could a Western release confirmed, by the end of the year no less.

I'm extremely excited by this remake, I love .hack and the atmosphere of its universe. The soundtrack alone is phenomenal, over the years I've built up quite a collection of .hack music CDs from every era of the franchise. I look forward to seeing .hack regaining its importance in popular culture.

Ever since the push for modern VR gaming began I've been dreaming of playing a real .hack VRMMORPG, that one day I might actually see The World with my own eyes. This remake is a good start towards that dream, the first step towards making .hack a true VR experience. I'll be buying this game day one!

Not sure about a new .hack// game, but wait till my friend hears about .hack//G.U. getting HD remastered. So far, I only have the original .hack// games and G.U. volume 1.

If they do this, I hope they'll possibly remaster and remake the original 4. Oh my god the possabilities.

I'd prefer if they remastered the first game but this is pretty great though.

If I remember correctly, it's one of the, if not arguably the first "stuck in game" mmo series. Then following the animes after it revolved around the series, or if you would count them as being true-bred animes, the source disks you got along with the original 4 explaining some of the story outside of The World.

Hopefully, well see the original .hack// games get rebooted or remade with better gameplay as well as different graphics some time after the release of the remastered G.U. trilogy.

The problem with making a new .hack// game is that Mona Marshall and Lia Sargent won't be coming back. They may have to get replaced by younger voice actors. Kate Higgins sounded boring to me as Natsume (stick with Sakura Haruno or Sailor Mercury please!). I hope Daran Norris (yep! Cosmo) will always be Piros and that Kirk Thornton will always be Orca. So yeah, Lia (aka Milly Thompson) will always be better than Kate as Natsume.

I was surprised to hear of this as well, and wonder why they chose the G.U. trilogy first instead of the original tetralogy. Hard to believe it's been right at 15 years already since they were first released.

Is there another series other than the SAO games that is about being in an an mmo when you are actually just playing a single player game offline?

I'm still waiting on Crunchyroll to license the last .Hack movie that came out a few years ago that came with Versus. I wanted to buy it, but it was a Japanese only release that was a hybrid PS3 game/Bluray, so you needed a japanese PS3, and it was way too expensive for me to consider at the time, especially when no subtitles were available.
