"Do you mean a .hack sequel? Or do you mean the next original title to follow .hack? We're of course making new titles. PS3 titles too."-Hiroshi Matsuyama
This guy better bring .hack quick.

Would love to see an updated HD version of the old .hack games, with some of the old bugs ironed out but even better would be a brand new game, bridging the gap between the various franchise properties like the original, Roots, etc.

All 4 .hacks/ from the PS2? That would be one long ass game. I think instead of remaking the FAKE ONLINE RPG, just make a new one with Real ONLINE connectivity. There can still be NPC emials and interactions, but let an online community grow.

EDIT: I am not knocking the series. I was just stating that .hack emulates an online world. Well now...they can have a real one since PSN is strong and well developed and back then it was just starting

Actually they were all individually, very short. Typically under 20hours each. So putting them all together, makes one good length JRPG.

I think if they release another .HACK game, they should also release a .HACK HD collection, beforehand. I'd buy it.

@ cupcake
I disagree, because there is more to the game than just it being a fake-MMO, it's an RPG and the setting is within an MMO. Unless the game is actually gonna let you hack the code, break the game with cheating, and put people in comas. Take that away and it's not .hack.

I'd like a new story myself, or a continuation of GU.

Their is a online MMO of .Hack, problem is that it is only in Japan. It does take place in the first .Hack.

Lets hope nobody gets into any "real" comas.
Redempteur  +   1332d ago
i think you mean : in the first "the world"
Lifewish  +   1332d ago
i will gladly take a new .hack game on the PS3
MicroSony4Life  +   1331d ago
I think the 1 disagree
came from some one who think you were talking about pirating a game.
noxeven  +   1332d ago
I'd love a new dot hack game, hell id love an translation of .hack link too. hopefully one or more will occur sooner rather then later
Rybakov  +   1332d ago
YES PLEASE either remake it in hd or just make it an mmo because its already there you just need to apply what you already have

I guess this finally puts the .hack link will get localized to rest....

and why would people be excited for this? Namco would never localize it at this point
Apotheosize  +   1332d ago
Wow this is great news. A sequel to the dot hack games would be great. Maybe they could actually utilize online and make it similar to "The World"
PS3Freak  +   1332d ago
That would be really cool.

HebrewHammer  +   1332d ago

badz149  +   1332d ago

Apotheosize  +   1332d ago
I had to think about that for a sec haha
eagles1990  +   1332d ago
This would be the good kind of hack to come to the PS3
ATLGAMER  +   1332d ago
that is actually online with 4 player co op.....would be great
Stealth20k  +   1332d ago
Who cares when namco cant bother enough to care and localize them?
Sigh  +   1332d ago
ohhh snap.
loved the .hack games.
George Sears  +   1332d ago
I loved the series but hated the fact that I had to pay full price for 4 games that were aroud 20 hours a piece. What sucked even more is that nothing changed besides the story progression. No better graphics, no shit.
Blaze929  +   1332d ago
they still make these games? wow
Myst  +   1332d ago
So my wish may actually be coming true? Sweetness now so please let Xenosaga be the next one as well.

As I wrote long time ago - http://n4g.com/user/blogpos...

Get more collection titles. The money is sitting for the developers to take as long as it gets the same treatment as God of War [enhanced graphics and trophies [I don't care much for them but I know others do.]].

Though if it's entirely new that's fine, but I think a .hack mmo would be nice. An MMO of an MMO is pretty much a nice thing to. Except skip the virtual reality I don't want to get stuck in the game :p
