New .hack game announced

More information after CG movie release.

This week’s Famitsu confirmed a new .hack game in development. Its title and platform are still to be announced, but the magazine teases more information to arrive shortly after .hack//Sekai no Mukou Ni‘s (a CG movie) Japanese theatrical release on January 21.

Famitsu interviewed CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama, who shared first details on the game.

According to Matsuyama, the character in the screenshot may or may not be .hack//GU‘s Haseo. Asked by Famitsu if the character is indeed the GU star, Matsuyama teased that he could not yet say. Different from GU, however, Matsuyama said the new game will reach for a more photo realistic style.

Development on the project initially began around the same time the CG movie. The game is set a year after the movie, in the year 2025, so the two may be related.

Thanks, Hachimaki.
