.hack://G.U. remade in high def

By Spencer . September 14, 2007 . 9:22am


Days after the conclusion of .hack://G.U. arrives in North America, CyberConnect2 announces .hack://G.U. Trilogy. Surprisingly, this isn’t a bundle pack of the three .hack://G.U. games for the Playstation 2. .hack://G.U. Trilogy is coming on a Blu-ray disc, which means you can enjoy Haseo’s three games (again?) in high definition. Fans of the .hack series are probably excited about this, but it seems so sudden to re-release .hack://G.U. The real world is just closing the books on the World Version 2.


No new content has been specified, but CyberConnect2 mentions there will be new challenges. Two projects unveiled, one to go!


Correction – this is a Blu-Ray disc movie and DVD movie with a few new elements to flesh out the story. The original anime is set to come out on January 25, 2008. I apologize for the confusion regarding the error.

    I’m confused, you seem to think this will be a collection of the three G.U. games, but other places seem to think this will be a movie. Which is it?

    It’s going to be the G.U. Trilogy. CyberConnect2 announced it, which means it’s going to be the games.

    A movie?

    Sounds awesome..

  • CyberConnect2 studio has announced a new 85-minute .hack//G.U. Trilogy OVA, based on the three popular .hack//G.U. role-playing games, that Bandai Namco Games and Bandai Visual will release on January 25 on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in Japan.

    Haha I loved this movie It was really cutting things short, like the arena battle and such were hurried and there was no Endrance ;_;
    But it was meant to be more like an alternate story. So the way it plays out it is a little different, the graphics are stunning, and Haseo gets a flipping awesome new form. Yeah.
