Watch 12 Whole Minutes Of Footage From .hack//The Movie


Namco Bandai are sticking with their habit of releasing extremely lengthy promos for some of their products. Today’s is for .hack//Beyond the World, the CG .hack movie released in Japanese theatres last month:



.hack//Beyond the World takes place in 2024 and is directed by CyberConnect 2 president, Hiroshi Matsuyama. That’s his commentary you hear during the video. CyberConnect 2 are also working on a new .hack game that will take place one year after the events of the movie. The game will feature Haseo once again, although we aren’t certain if it’s the same Haseo from .hack//G.U. or someone else.
