    Couldn’t care less about a movie I won’t be able to understand, but Versus guarantees that I’ll be picking up this hybrid pack.

    • Christopher Nunes

      Already have The World Edition pre-order! However, how come we haven’t heard any more new characters for .hack//Versus? Surely the entire roster cannot be only them?

      • Solomon_Kano

        Yea, I’m hoping there are more to be revealed. It’s looking like this might be it though. Still, for a hybrid pack game, I suppose that’s a good bit.

        • Christopher Nunes

          Hopefully they could be keeping more characters underwrap so when the game comes out the player can discover who else got in for a fun bit or reveal more bit of more characters closer to launch date.

          When’s the last time a game company didn’t reveal everything about a game and players had to find out much to their surprise and joy?

          I want to believe that.

          • Solomon_Kano

            That would be nice. It’s a shame that nowadays we learn almost everything about a game before it’s even out. Crossing fingers for a few secret characters.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I will! ^_^

            By the way, are you going to get the game too? Who’s going to be your main? Mine’s definitely Kite.
            I might have to use my JPN account to play this game online because I doubt I can use my US account for it… or lack any possible DLC for it in the future.

          • Solomon_Kano

            I’m planning on it, yea. I’ll probably main Ovan or Haseo.

            Being hybrid pack, I don’t see them doing much DLC, but then it is from CC2. Hopefully they don’t, so I can use my US account, but if it’s more characters I’ll deal.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I see… what’s your PSN account name? Mine’s “VirusChris”… I wouldn’t mind challenging you online when I get more copy of the game, especially “The World Edition”! Going to be awesome!

          • Solomon_Kano

            My PSN? The wondrously terrible Dat_KiDD_Cold (you don’t know how much I wish I could change that lol).

          • Christopher Nunes

            By the way my JPN account is “Virakin”. I’ll add you when I have the chance alright!

          • Solomon_Kano

            Alright. I’d tell you my JP account, but I don’t remember the name. I’ll send a message when I add you.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Alright, just sent the Friend Request for my US account.

  • puchinri

    I really hope they’ll be able to make an even bigger fighting game now~. ♥u♥

    The movie looks pretty interesting to me, and I’m totes hyped for the game! It’s been a long time since I played, watched or read anything .Hack, but I’ve kind of always had a love/soft spot for the series, so I’m going to try and rekindle my love for it before getting this. (And hopefully I can preorder if not buy within the first week.)

  • dotzeno

    Versus looks so good in this video… just might have to pick this up…

  • Curan_Altea

    While I’m happy with the current roster, i would love more characters. They have favorites like Haseo and Tsukasa, but the lack of a Balmung style character sucks, and I’d like to see Sora from .hack//sign. But oh well, I’ll probably end up maining Haseo…….

    • I can’t see Balmung and Helba not being in this game. I’d be very surprised if they’re left out, considering how much of a role they play in all the different .hack stories.

      • Curan_Altea

        Yeah, that’s my reasoning too. Feel special getting a response from Ishaan.
        More new characters or not I’m glad I preordered. As a whole .hack// is my favorite series. It’s what really got me into anime, and made me become ocd about item collection and completion in video games. When siliconera reported on there being different collectible weapons I was audibly excited.

        • Ah, the different weapons are just for show, though! They don’t really make any difference to the character beyond a cosmetic change. It’s basically a way for you to set yourself apart a little during online battles.

          • Curan_Altea

            Yeah, I picked up on that, and while a little disappointing, It’s still great that there’s more weapons, because I’m a customization fanatic. (Spent at least 2 hours in Guild Wars 2 beta customizing/creating my character.)…… Just remembered Fragment…… But it seems like your’e a fellow .hack//lover like I am.

    • Scott

       sora was in //Sign?

      •  Not THAT Sora. Sora, the PKer from .hack//Sign, who often asks for addresses of other players.

        • Scott

          OOOhhh! yeah. i forgot about him. thanks.

  • Curan_Altea

    Oh, and Tokio got……. sexy? And damn do I want that jacket.

  • IshimaruKaito

    US release?? 

  • Christopher Nunes

    Looks great! But, please tell me there’s going to be more than those characters that were shown in the trailer. They have a massive cast of characters and only use these? I’m happy who got in, but still… so much potential wasted.

    FYI… maining Kite, yup! And Tokio/9 as well!

    • Scott

      you know fighting games, they always got someone to unlock that they dont announce.

  • AzureNova

    We really, REALLY need a localization for this. .Hack is one of my favorite series ever, and will be until the day I get data drained =P

    • Christopher Nunes

      Azure Kite: … (Stares at AzureNova)

      But seriously, we need this game to be localized! I miss .hack in the West!

  • kuroneko0509

    as usual…. kite is the bestl with his data drain & sansouenkon. but still i love his xth form data drain in //link. btw tokio is very cool :D

    • Christopher Nunes

      Seriously! Kite’s Data Drain here is OVERLY AWESOME EPIC BEYOND WORDS BADASS!

      Kite’s the man! And that’s why I’m going to main him! ^_^

  • Freud_Hater

    So 9 can stop time, huh… That rather interesting. Now, who am I going to main… Ovan? Haseo? Tsukasa? They’re all really cool Oo

  • oh god damn it I know that I was sceptical but this looks good and kinda true to the source materials… and fun too.

    Now we only miss a few characters for it to be uber-epic *points at my name* that one for example,-…. and Piros the 3rd would be fun/totally broken.
    Endrance with Mia/Macha or (lol) Sora …aka Misaki Ryou’s The World Twinblade PK.

    Since we already got a lot of greenish-reddish personas Haseo’s “Tri-edge” might be out of the question.

    Subaru, Sanjuro or Pie and Kuhn or Saika since we already have Tokio. xD

  • Jake Caro

    Holy cow soup with onions…original Kite…data draining.
    Please take all my money just for making this game.

  • Beyond words dood…I-I really want to to get this even if it means being tortured by everyone in The World dood

  • Scott

    hey look at the top of Ovan’s arm. it’s Code Lyoko.

    OH my GOSH i –WANT-!!

  • Hmm….Do I need knowledge of .hack to enjoy the movie?

    •  Not at all. There’s little things you get from being a hardcore fan, but overall it’s not really connected to other plots. Heck, it’s more like a reboot.

    • Don’t think so, entire different issue from the previous hack series. Maybe some terminology from the previous series might be mentioned but you can quickly look it up in the .hack// wikia page.

    •  You don’t need prior knowledge to the canon watching this movie, or even .hack//Quantum. Both are essentially reboots and spinoffs that tell the same kind of story.

  • amazing song in the trailer

    • Yeah I’m glad they stuck with Tomoyo Mitani as the vocalist for the theme song.

  • KITE!!!! OMFG I’M SO HYPE. This may be my first import EVER.

  • Shadowman

    That was really awesome I can’t wait to watch the movie.

  • Visa Vang

     I jizzed buckets and they’re also cheap because they put an epic music on the background…

  • Abel.exe

    As much as I like to see that .hack is still alive and well, I would rather have another rpg game. Oh better yet, a mmorpg :)
