Bandai Namco revealed a crossover event with Hack//GU in Tales of mobile game Tales of the Rays. A pretty cool trailer was published for the occasion, detailing the collab event and teasing more to come.
This the first collab event for Tales of the Rays this Fall 2020, and will be happening sometime in September. Both Haseo (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai) and Atoli (Ayako Kawasumi) are joining Tales of the Rays as playable characters.
Malik from Tales of Graces, Emil from Tales of Asteria, and Rose from Tales of Zestiria will also get new versions where they cosplay as Dot Hack characters. Typical move for these kind of mobile game collab events.
A Fall 2020 Wedding Event was also teased in the trailer. Four characters will receive new wedding dresses versions. They’ll be revealed later.
Tales of the Rays is currently in its third part, subtitled Fairy’s Requiem. Bandai Namco revealed that for the 4th part, Last Cradle, the game will introduce a brand new theme song, titled I Believe, by BoA. It’s the first time BoA is making a Tales of theme song since Tales of Graces opening theme Mamoritai (White Wishes) in 2009. A short sample of the theme song can be heard at the end of the trailer. The Tales of the Rays Fairy’s Requiem x Hack GU collab reveal trailer is included below.

Tales of the Rays is a mobile game only available in Japan needless to say. There was an English version but it obviously closed down.
CyberConnect2 is currently working on a PS4 game adaptation of Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) coming in 2021.
The latest console Tales of game, Tales of Arise, was initially planed for 2020 but got indefinitely delayed. However, it might be back sooner than we think, perhaps in early 2021, as the game was recently rated in Australia.
