.hack//G.U. The Last Recode has been given a date of November 1st for Japan at a price of 7,600 yen. This news was announced in a new issue of Famitsu. In addition to the release date, more info on what content will be included in the remaster was mentioned. Mostly this announcement was about the brand new fourth volume they are adding to The Last Recode, Haseo’s 5th form and a new female character exclusive to this new portion of the game. Below you’ll find a list of the brand new content and more details on the plot of the fourth volume. None of this was included in the original .hack//G.U. games. Also, it looks like Japan will be getting a premium edition of the game as well. Feel free to refer to my original announcement article to see previous announced changes made for GU’s remaster.
Vol. 4 Story
Haseo logs into “The World R:2” for the first time in one year and three months following the events of .hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption. In the large hollow of Qua Holme, he finds a frozen Ovan. Haseo tries to break the ice, but with his current power, he does not have the means to do so. Haseo rounds up his former comrades to go on an adventure to rescue Ovan.
