Bandai Namco and Cyberconnect2 recently announced a .hack//G.U. remaster titled .hack//G.U. Last Recode, and many immediately wondered “is it coming west?” Well, it most probably will.
The trademark “.hack//G.U. Last Recode” has been registered in the European union by the same legal representative that usually handles registrations for Bandai Namco titles like for instance Code Vein and many more.
While this does not equate to an official announcement of an English localization, it’s the next best thing, since the trademark is extremely specific, and it’s very unlikely that this is just a move to protect the name.
.hack//G.U. Last Recode will launch at a yet undisclosed date in Japan for PS4 and PC, even if it should be quite close considering that development of the remaster is 80% complete. It will include several gameplay improvements (that you can read here), 1080p rendering at 60 FPS, with display output support up to 4K.
It will also basically be a collection, since it will include all three volumes Rebirth, Reminisce and Redemption.
