    Well, looks like I’ll be screaming “Za Worldo” every time I play Tokio… Awesome!

    •  And I’ll be making Sakuya (Touhou) and Tokio cross references along the way.

      • neocatzon

        “ZA WARUDO! Toki o tomare.. ” *knifed*

  • kuroneko0509

    hopefully there’s costume function…. wanna see kite in his xth form from .hack//link

  • OH EM GEE (Can’t believe I used that. Blame the excitement) Tokio~~ Waant! (●´⌓`●) I must say he looks rather hawt… I mean awesome… ( ._.) /fangirl moment.

  • Rishtopher

    Tokio is the only one I haven’t seen before. I don’t know anything about .hack though, is he an OC or new to the movie at least?

    • He’s the main character of .hack//LINK, a jap only game for PSP. Although he’s older now in Versus because he’s a PC body ( means his real body is in the game)

      • Rishtopher

        Ah thanks for clearing that up for me!

  • I want this soooo bad. HNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGG! >_<


  • Mr_SP

    Am I the only person a little put off by Kite suddenly having Tri-Edge powers? I mean, Azure Kite’s flame, sure, but Azure Kite never used the tri-edge mark as an attack. Since he’s, you know… lacking the extra weapon.

    • Actually Kite was able to use those moves in the .hack//XXXX manga he also used those moves in the //link series

  • AzuNo17

    No matter how the gameplay works out, it’s just so stunning seeing the fluid actions of every attack. This game sold me on aerial combat alone :D

  • Manuel Estela

    I really like the way they’re making this game however they really should add more characters maybe some that won’t make it to story mode including fan favorites

  • One qtn, why certain characters look alike?

    • Curan_Altea

      Because Kite be the most popular avatar….. There’s also story relevance.

  • Zeidge

    Getting this NOW.

  • Mister_Nep

    Is there an explanation to Tokio’s new look? He never wore those clothes in the game. Is this a game character version of him, or is it still his human body in the game?

  • ZBaksh386

    what the hell happened to tokio?

    last time i saw him he was neirdy and not in a good way.

  • Anthony James Moffett

    In a bit of a love-hate relationship here. The price does not merit purchase. It looks fun as all hell, and being a .Hack fan I would LOVE to own it…however it costs around ~$170….Still, Nice to see Tokio Grew up a bit! He looks much more attractive and not so much of a Digimon-Tai-wannabe.

    Also, weapon change? Sleek new ALTIMIT OS? Some sort of comment….BBS thing? This is starting to feel more like .Hack than I expected.

    • It’s not 170$. Just buy the asian version OR buy the Japanese version without the whole World Edition.

  • Kitestwinblades

    Absolutely wicked.
    Kite with the infamous Data Drain and BlackRose bludgeoning people.
    Just the way I like it XD

  • Kyle D. Johnson

    Oooh, so 9 was Tokio? That’s cool too…
