Interview Tidbits

2017 is the 15th anniversary since the release of .hack and the 10th anniversary since the release of G.U., as well as the year G.U. is set. In order to commemorate that, we thought to reboot the series.
This is a remaster rather than a new work because we want introduce the younger generation to .hack since it has been so long.
As for the new elements, you will be able to meet a “Haseo” you “don’t know.”
Since it’s the 15th anniversary of .hack, there are also other projects moving along.

Development is currently 80 percent complete.
