Today Famitsu released a tease of the next issue of its magazine, and it includes a couple of significant reveals for the .hack//G.U. remaster .hack//G.U. Last Recode by CyberConnect2 and Bandai Namco.

First of all, we learn the Japanese release date, which will be on November 1st, for PS4 and PC.

Yet, that’s not all. The collection won’t just include the three episodes of the trilogy Rebirth, Reminisce and Redemption, but a fourth is in development, titled “the Dreaming Snakes that Make the World Turn.

The story of this new chapter appears to be bound to a girl, who is probably a new character. Her identity hasn’t been revealed yet.

In the preview image below we also see what appears to be a rich Premium Edition for the Japanese market. Of course, we don’t know if it will ever will come west.

At the moment we don’t have a western release date for the game, besides the already announced a “late 2017” window for North America and Europe. Luckily for those who love Japanese voice acting, dual audio (English and Japanese) has also been confirmed officially, on top of English, German and French subtitles. You can also check out a large batch of recent screenshots.
