A lot of new information has come in since we last reported on .hack//G.U. Last Recode including the release date, gameplay footage, PS4 vs. PS2 comparison footage, a silly Parody Mode, and various updates. First off, the game releases in America and Europe on November 3, 2017. 2017 is not only the year that G.U. takes place in, but it is also the 15th anniversary of .hack and the 10th anniversary of the first .hack//G.U. title, which is one of the reasons they’re remaking them now.
My favorite part of all this is the all new Parody Mode. They replace lines in many serious scenes with silly, funny lines. It’s not a full-game treatment, but rather a collection of videos a la Metal Gear Solid 3‘s Secret Theater. Doesn’t sound like it goes to the lengths that the Secret Theater did by redirecting and animating scenes, however.
