Featuring remastered versions of the three .hack//G.U. action-RPGs (Rebirth, Reminisce, and Redemption), .hack//G.U. Last Recode is coming to North America and Europe in late 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC, Bandai Namco announced today.

All three of the games in Last Recode will run at 1080p/60 frames-per-second complete with 16:9 widescreen picture. You can also expect enhanced battle balance and game pacing, a new Cheat Mode allowing you to start the game with full stats, a new Retry Mode allowing you to retry battles without having to return to the title screen, and additional features that will be announced at a later date.

Here’s the description:

.hack is a multimedia franchise created and developed by famed Japanese developer CyberConnect2. Comprising of video games, anime, novels, and manga, the world of .hack focuses on the mysterious events surrounding a wildly popular in-universe massively multiplayer role-playing game called The World. .hack//G.U. begins after the events of the original .hack series with players assuming the role of Haseo as he tracks down a powerful Player Killer named Tri-Edge who killed his friend’s in-game avatar Shino, and put her into a coma in real life.

Bandai Namco’s Dennis Lee adds, “The .hack series continues to be one of the most requested titles we hear about from our community. We are very excited for these fans to return to The World and experience .hack//G.U. like never before with .hack//G.U. Last Recode!”

Voiceovers in Last Recode will be in English and Japanese.
