It's not every day that we see PlayStation 2 games making their way to PC, but what do you know: Bandai Namco's going for it. The latest issue of Japanese gaming mag Famitsu revealed that an HD remaster of the .hack//G.U. trilogy, originally released in 2006 and 2007, is coming to PS4 and PC as a bundle called .hack//G.U. Last Recode.
The .hack series of games aren't MMOs, but they're set inside fictional MMOs, which is strange but also cool? Why grind in a real MMO when you can grind in a fake MMO inside a real game, am I right?
Speaking of grinding, it seems like there's going to be a bit less of it this time around than in the originals. As reported by RPG Site (opens in new tab), the Last Recode remaster includes all three games running at 1080p 60 fps with a swath of balance changes and new features applied to the series. Those include: movement speed, a larger item inventory, increased XP gain, and skippable cutscenes.
Unsurprisingly Famitsu has no details on a western release, but with .hack//G.U. Last Recode coming to PC, it's likely inevitable.
