Bandai Namco Entertainment and CyberConnect2 have revealed that .hack//G.U. Last Recode is coming to Nintendo Switch.

The Japanese role-playing game compilation was previously released for PlayStation 4 and PC back in November 2017, but despite the Fukuoka-based developer pitching the idea of porting the collection to Nintendo Switch to Bandai Namco Entertainment “several times,” the publisher had been concerned about costs and sales projections. That situation has now changed.

The .hack//G.U. franchise brings a collaboration between two giants of Japanese animation: Ito Kazunori (Mobile Police PATLABOR) and Sadamoto Yoshiyuki (Neon Genesis Evangelion) to create a futuristic JRPG focused on “The World” a Virtual Reality MMORPG with consequences in the real world.

Logging back into the .hack//G.U. series, the player will play as Haseo, tracking down the Player Killer Tri-Edge to avenge his friend Shino, who was killed in the game, putting her into a coma in real life.

The Last Recode remaster, previously released on PS4, includes the 3 original titles Rebirth, Reminisce, Redemption and brings a 4th and last story, Reconnection, now all fully restored and remastered for Nintendo Switch, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise.


.hack//G.U. Last Recode will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch across Asia on 10th March 2022, and across North America and Europe on 11th March 2022.
