The latest entry in CyberConnect2’s .hack//G.U. series releases this week, and it includes three classic PlayStation 2 role-playing games. The games have been remastered with trophy support, enhanced graphics (it features 16:9 widescreen and a 1080p resolution), and it now runs at a stable 60fps. It’s not just a collection of old titles, though, as balance changes have been made, and a new fourth episode will flesh out the series further.
To celebrate the release of .hack//G.U. Last Recode, publisher Bandai Namco just put out a new trailer for the game. Over two minutes long, the trailer shows off the title’s enhanced graphics, and teases what to expect from the game’s fourth episode. Definitely give it a watch if you’re interested in buying.

For more information on the new fourth episode, check out the description from Bandai Namco:
A brand new fourth episode detailing events 1 year and 3 months after .hack//G.U. Vol. 3//Redemption! Haseo has quit the The World R:2 (the MMORPG which the .hack//G.U. games take place in) after the events of .hack//G.U. Vol.3//Redemption, but has received a mysterious email hinting at the location of his friend Ovan, who was thought to have disappeared. With the announcement of The World R:2 ending its service on 31st December, 2018, Haseo must once again log into the game and save his friend before time runs out. The 5th form of Haseo will be also unveiled with a new Job Extend from Haseo’s Xth form, and new characters and dungeons will be included into the adventure.
.hack//G.U. Last Recode will launch on November 3 for the PlayStation 4.
