Bandai Namco will be bringing a remastered trilogy of .hack//G.U. titles to PC in late 2017 under the title Last Recode. It’ll bundle all three RPGs (Rebirth, Reminisce, and Redemption) together in one package.
Originally released across 2006 and 2007, you can expect technical improvements to all three games. 16:9 aspect ratio, 60fps, and 1080p resolution are all confirmed. It’s not immediately clear whether you’ll be able to downsample beyond 1080p on PC, but that’s a possibility.
The .hack//G.U. Last Recode bundle will also make changes to battle balance and game pacing, and include a cheat mode for anybody wanting to just blast through the story with full stats. There’s a trailer below, and, beneath that, a more detailed summary of the additions (from Famitsu).
