First look at the next .hack

Gematsu: "Last month, CyberConnect2 announced in a Famitsu interview that it’s hard at work on the next .hack video game. Today, Famitsu published its interview online, including the first direct-feed shots of the new project." (.hack, PS3, Xbox 360)

these are huge news for JRPG fans but since the name of the game is not Final Fantasy then no one cares. ;(

dot hack series is pretty good
but by looking at the screenshot it looks like the person from .hack gu

I sort of enjoyed .hack. It was a little strange in concept, but the game itself was cool enough to warrant a play. Depending on how they approach it this gen, we'll see if the next iteration is worth it.

I first attempted to play the first in the series on ps2 ".hack: Infection...and it was going good until I got totally lost and couldn't figure out what to do, no matter when I traveled I got my ass kicked from super strong monsters...but I think I may go back and play it over now that I have something called "internet" 24/7

Note: Although I never finished the 1st game, something about the concept appealed to me, I wish we can get another Dark Cloud game as well.

Jezz how many games can CyberConnect2 work on. They work on all the Naruto games, Asura's Wrath and now a .hack game. They know how to pump out quality titles on a regular basis.
princejb134  +   1012d ago
cause there quality developers =]
Redempteur  +   1011d ago
they also worked on soul calibur 5 as well ( story mode )
Ranma1  +   1012d ago
I was never interested in this series. But with so many few rpg's this gen. I might actually but this game when it comes out
Fullmetalevolust  +   1012d ago
YES!!! Loved GU and all the .hack games. I cannot wait to hear more about this project. The PS2 games were stellar and are almost become collectible items. :)

.link was great
Son_Lee  +   1012d ago
I love most RPGs, and having never played the .hack series, I'm excited, but I hope I'm not hopelessly lost.
Slade  +   1012d ago
you wont be

Bubbles for having Lights as your avatar. She's so fine it's not even fair...
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   1012d ago
It'll probably get horrible scores in terms of reviews. I mean the games themselves are just fine, but they never seem to get good review scores. Despite that they sell absurdly well(like you cannot find the games anywhere good) and fans just love the games.

I want KITE back T.T
soraalam1  +   1012d ago

So Haseo remains the protagonist.....
ovhaum  +   1012d ago
CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama said the character in the image may or may not be Haseo.

Maybe its just another player with Haseo avatar. A .Hack G.U. collection, maybe?
I hope it's for ps3/Xboxy.

I'd love an HD collection just as much as a new game. Actually, why not do both?? :)
NoOoB101  +   1012d ago
hope theres online co-op so we can team up with our own characters =D
Megaman_nerd  +   1012d ago
That would be sooo cool. 0.0
Haseo106  +   1012d ago
Awesome! I've been waiting for this Announcement T_T
Now, they need to remake the Trilogy for the PS3
Valorous_Entity  +   1012d ago
If this is on PS3 then count me in, I've been waiting for a .Hack console game for ages!
vuzuki  +   1011d ago
The screens are not detailed enough to be PS3 material in my opinion. I think it's a Vita title - maybe they are considering a PS3 port that's why they wait for the announcement.
NeXXXuS  +   1012d ago
It would be awesome if they would incorporate online playability into the game for players to team up.
Kthalas  +   1012d ago
A new .hack would be nice. I hope that if it is true that it comes to the US. Need more JRPGs. Love my Western RPGs too, but so few JRPGs make it to the US any more. (Not that many ever came here to start with sadly.)
tiffac008  +   1012d ago
Well I hope Bamco plans to bring this over, because .Hack//Link (PSP) didn't see the light of day in the English speaking market.
KaitoDerp  +   1012d ago
I had to make a account and i been n4g for almost 5 years and thank to this news i join to tell evertone where you can find more teasing images ._.

It looks like its gonna be sequel it set in year 2025.
Stunt  +   1012d ago
Those are not of the game. They're of the theatrical movie release, .hack//Sekai no Mukou Ni.
chadwarden  +   1012d ago
I thought it said "A look at the next Jak" as in Jak 4
Dmd  +   1012d ago
Never played, but I'm very curious. Do hack games usually comes to the west? for I'm getting tired of hear about those very interesting jrpg that only comes out in japan...
Kthalas  +   1012d ago
I know there were a few on the PS2 that made it to the US. There was a 4 part series that was on the PS2. Past that I'm not sure which other ones made it to the US.
rexbolt  +   1012d ago
7 games in total hit the US
Dmd  +   1008d ago
Hopefully that will be the case, I'm in dire need of some fresh good jrpg's this gen! Thanks for the reply!
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   1012d ago
Dot hack infection/mutation/outbreak/Qu arantine(4 part series)
And dot hack g.u. rebirth/reminisce/redemption. (3 part series)
Those made it stateside.
The MMO .hack//fragment didn't due to lack of popularity apparently, and .hack//link (PSP) didn't because it was poorly received.
If this new game is for ps3/360 it'll make it stateside, however.
rexbolt  +   1012d ago
cant wait for this better be on ps3 cus if its on vita well..im sorta borke right now lol
r21  +   1012d ago
.Hack GU was awesome :D cant wait to play a new .Hack game!
theeg  +   1012d ago
most likely its a ps4 game

doubtful they would announce it for ps3, unless it'll be done in less than a year, we'll have a new playstation in 11 months or less!
smashman98  +   1012d ago
jrpg activity always tends to pick up on consoles in the latter half of their lifespan but no we wont be seein ps4 for 24 months at the least
fourthpersonview  +   1012d ago
.hack (original) HD remake pl0x!
Ryasha  +   1011d ago
I feel like it's going to be another case of "Reuse the character design of one of our pre-existing characters with some tweaks here and there to make it a new character" situations like they've been doing for the last couple .hack things.
I'm not really a fan of that so I'll have to know more before I make the decision to make it a day one purchase.
noxeven  +   1011d ago
So happy they are making a new one. Only issue is it better come over here or i think i will flip even then I did when link wasn't brought over. Oh well only time will tell
