The World R:X is going to bring together a tonne of .hack characters. Screenshots from the PSP game show .hack//Link middle schooler Tokio teaming up with short tempered .hack//G.U. protagonist Haseo for a Cross Rengeki attack. With a list of characters including Tsukasa (.hack//Sign), Subaru (.hack//Sign), Tabby (.hack//Roots), Midori (.hack//Cell), and even Kite from plain old .hack Namco Bandai’s PSP .hack game feels like .hack//Fan Service.
CyberConnect2’s decision to create comic book style cutscenes instead of video clips or floating heads was a good choice. These give .hack//Link a manga flavor that other games in the series and other anime based titles don’t have.
