Bandai Namco Entertainment released a large batch of screenshots of the upcoming remaster of the classic JRPG series .hack//G.U., titled .hack//G.U. Last Recode.
First of all, we get a comparison between P2 and PS4/PC graphics, showing off the improvements. You can see it below, with PS2 visuals first, followed by the remaster in each pair of screenshots.
The screen resolution has been increased to 1080p, with support for 4K output, frame rate has been upped to 60 FPS, and even cinematics are in high resolution (excluding in some modes). Beckground textures also benefit in increasing resolution, while the UI has been redesigned to fit. Anti-aliasing has been added to improve polygon’s edges, and shadows have been redone in high definition, as you can see in the screenshots below.
A lot more improvements have been added to the gameplay as well, and you can read them in our dedicated article.
On top of the comparisons, we get a lot of dedicated screenshots for each main character, including artwork. You can enjoy those at the bottom of the post.
The game doesn’t have a release date for Japan, while Bandai Namco 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.
