Last week, CyberConnect2 (サイバーコネクトツー), the company behind the .hack series set up a countdown site. For fans who are familiar with the series, the company has already pointed out that the PSP game .hack//Link was the last game of the series, thus we were not expecting something new of this kind to come. The site finally opened today and as we have expected, it’s not a game but a 3D movie which is something surprised. And the company has just announced its latest series .hack//The Movie (ドットハック) to be premiered in Japan in January 2012.
The 3D will be produced by CyberConnect2 (サイバーコネクトツー), which used to be the development studio of most of the games of the series. CyberConnect, doesn’t that sounds like the actual company behind the game “The World” in the series :) We also have another 3D movie .hack//G.U. Trilogy based on the .hack//G.U. PS2 game. The 3D movie this time looks a bit weird and I would like to say that I prefer the Trilogy one.
Big fan of the series, have watched all the Anime of .hack series, as well as the games. Just finished played the latest PSP game .hack//Link two months ago. If you still remembered that latest Anime of the series .hack//Quantum which was released last year as a three parts OVA. The story of the 3D movie this time seems quite similar to it and the female protagonist even use the same PC body (Player Character) of Kite, the protagonist of .hack//Sign.
