Today Bandai Namco released a new trailer of the upcoming remaster of the classic JRPG trilogy .hack//G.U., titled .hack//G.U. Last Recode.

The trailer focuses on the first game of the trilogyl, titled Vol. 1//Rebirth, while the other two Vol. 2//Reminisce and Vol. 3//Redemption, will probably be showcased in other videos down the line. It’s worth mentioning that a fourth volume will be added in the remaster, providing the story with a fitting conclusion, since some threads were definitely left hanging by the original release on PS2.

Vol. 1//Rebirth was originally released in Japan in May 2006, with Vol. 2//Reminisce following just a few months later in September, and Vol. 3//Redemption coming shortly after in January 2007. All were developed by CyberConnect2, that is also taking care of this remaster under Bandai Namco’s wing.

You can watch the video below, and if you want to see more, you can also check out the latest batch of screenshots and art from yesterday, which also focuses on the first three volumes of the trilogy. On top of that, you can enjoy another trailer one more large batch of recent screenshots, another extensive gallery showing the brand new Volume 4, and the first trailer.

The game will launch on both PS4 and PC (via Steam) in North America and Europe on November 3rd. The Japanese release will happen just two days before, on November 1st, 2017.
