.hack//G.U. Last Recode launches on November 3 in North America.
Wait wait...Japan is out in November 01, 2017
NA- Nov 3.
JAP- Nov 1st.
.hack//G.U. Last Recode PREMIUM EDITION looks like that Japan only right now no word on the NA version at all
So far if you want the Premium Edition you might have to get the Japanese version
I check BANDAI NAMCO NA and Amazon NA no listing of the "Premium Edition" looks like it's Japanese only so
(11448yen Tax incl. in Japan)
Look for 【PS4】.hack//G.U. Last Recode PREMIUM EDITION【早期購入特典】オリジナルPS4カスタムテーマが貰えるプロダクトコード同梱【Amazon.co.jp限定】アイテム未定
Checking the shipping on both CD Japan is much faster to NA to where I live usually win I order from them it takes about 3 days after its out and I have to sign for it
So if I order the Premium Edition my NA version from amazon NA will come faster since it's out on NOV 3rd and they might come the same time...O_o
And no there is non Premium Edition for NA sadly to say not yet
I'm surprised they are releasing both almost the same time if that said recording might be done no word on DLC or anything new except what they show
So you're undecided if you want the Premium Edition or not it's up to you I might hold off until next month and order it I'm still thinking of I want the Premium Edition or not I just want the game and I already got more then one of the NA and JAP copies not even opened
And the good thing is .Hack//G.U. copies for PS2 might go done after this if you're selling or plan on selling them now is the good time to do so I think collect the money win its high before the price drops win the .Hack//G.U. Last Recode comes out
or if you just want to collect the PS2 games wait for .Hack//G.U. Last Recode to drop and the PS2 games will drop in price or just buy .Hack//G.U. Last Recode
NA English voices Haseooo
Wait I just looked there is no Japanese trailer yet...O_o
So in the Japanese one they might show off the Premium Edition more something NA is not getting so heads up for that
so who excited for .Hack//G.U. Last Recode I am and countless hours trying to rise party romance level for the wedding event
Spoilers you can marry who you like...O_o but that don't come until way later
Time to get countless hours into this game again so it can match my PS2 saves
And good luck if you're buying the Premium Edition or not I might next month I'm not sure I do want to buy the Steam version also so I can play on my PC so I'm thinking about it.
As for the new story I might finish the game and play the new story at lest once and go back to .hack//G.U. Vol.3//Redemption I played lot of hours in that game and I enjoyed it
Beside I love Haseo x-form outfit versus his new black one
For people who never played a .Hack game oh boy you're in for a ride a good one from what I'm seeing people who never played are like 'Oh its like SAO' 'Is it good?'
No offense SAO lovers but I can never replace .Hack it's in my heart and from my darkest times it was .Hack and Final Fantasy and Star Ocean
But yes enough talk and get ready for nov 1, nov 3rd NA and JAP are both coming out
And good luck on what version you're playing
I myself played the Japanese version and the English version I own a Japanese PS2 I own all 3 games in Japanese and I also own English versions so the story I heard is much darker then the English version
One thing they did change win you fight Atoli a.k.a. Innis win she scream at Haseo in NA right?
In the Japanese version she screaming Sakaki name O_o yes that one thing they changed I noticed win I played the Japanese version they changed it to 'I want you look at me!' in the English version
(From what I recall Atoli Japanese VA was screaming Sakaki name not Haseo in that fight now I can be wrong but that what it sounded like she was saying in the Japanese version)
I don't know what else they changed my broken Japanese don't help much so I assuming they are going to change some dialog with the new story coming out for NA
So playing the Japanese version and getting that ending it felt...'ugh' the first time to me in the Japanese version Haseo and Atoli felt forced the English version tried to cover that up
by changing dialog and all that
By the looks of it Shino hint and the new story we might in the Japanese version Haseo might hint that he likes Ovan now win they bring that out in US and it all in English they might change it
Japan is more acceptable to that kind of 'Yaoi' win in the West 'NA' is not so they will change to please the fan base you get the idea
So I might end up buying the Japanese version after all to see what they changed
And if you read the light novels it hinted that Haseo did like Ovan the way the trailer they showed and the artwork that come out it hinted as much as I hate to say this
Haseo might finally admit his emotions to Ovan that how it feels so the whole Haseo and Shino and Ovan love triangle might be finally over with now if you recall Shino also liked Ovan not Haseo that why G.U. romance is...yeah
And in the light novels Haseo did say he likes guys but he prefers girls over guys...
O_o someone was talking about that so it not really clearly hinted over in the west or in English that Haseo is 'Bi' except the silly e-mails you can do with Endrance
And this new story is all about Ovan so expect anything I just hope this time in NA or JAP version that Haseo admits his emotions it getting way out of hand and Haseo is in denial that he likes Ovan and G.U. final ending the one where you get Tabby that ending did not help
Spoilers Haseo desire was to see Ovan as he faded away that white room hello that was too hard to cover up
One thing I did noticed that was hinted in the books Ovan emotions for Haseo is...
From what I can tell Ovan was seeing Shino in the hospital a lot and bringing her flowers?
But it never got to the point where Ovan was thinking or talking to Haseo witch means...
Ovan likes Shino?
Shino likes Ovan
Haseo like both
In the ending Haseo ended with Atoli
(To me Haseo and Atoli felt forced since the way the romance went and Alkaid did not admit that she liked Haseo so they went with Atoli)
I'm thinking Ovan thought of Haseo as a friend but not romantically but Haseo did have a crush on Ovan you have to blind not to see it and to this day it looks like Ovan is on Haseo mind
Man this love story is...they should of stuck with original idea keeping Shino as a 'avatar' user you did know that Shino was supposed to be the original 'avatar' user? they changed that and made Atoli and went with this path
That why Atoli attracted the 'avatar' she looks like Shino who was supposed to be the original avatar user can you image the story if Shino wasn't killed and the avatar awaken in her?
The love story would not be the same win .Hack//Prototype was out it had a small video of G.U.
and in that video it had a love story of Haseo and a girl in black with dark hair not silver and this girl was not Atoli it was Shino so win they thought of 'Atoli' they changed the story
You can find that video on youtube so that why I like Shino more she WAS the original one
Why they kick Shino over Atoli? I don't know that one maybe they thought blonds would be more fun? I don't know but they should of stayed with Shino
And fun fact why did they add cheats to this game?
Answer if you had a cheat system like codejunkies codes you can hack this game O_o
the fun was switching Haseo out for someone else you use Endrance in Vol.1 that was fun and his powers and fight ageist Azure Kite however to degree of damage win Azure Kite did his special move he would sit there unable to since it was all animated to Haseo not anyone else
and Azure Kite would just move and float around unable to to do anything
you can also use codejunkies codes to rise attack and def and all that even EXP and money
so win they found out NA was hacking this game they stop it in Vol.2 and Vol.3 so win you had a special boss fight and you tried to switch Haseo out and switch someone else in you can't go to that area it locks you out like in Vol.3 trying to fight Azure Kite again this time around if you're not Haseo the game will lock you out
however end game is different after beating the game you can switch Haseo out and you can replace him with...Shino or someone else but one thing they did change win they noticed NA was Hacking this game if you switched out Haseo with Azure Kite after the game Azure Kite will look down it hinted that they 'know' you're doing cheats so that supposed be a hint
There are some old youtube videos of cheats going around people hacking this game and you can find them so win they announced they was adding cheats I was surprised but not really I figured they taken the codes that people was using and placed them inside there game so people won't try to hack this game again you can find the codes around I did use them
And yes .Hack//G.U. games was hacked on PS2 alright enough of that.
I'm going to say if you played the Japanese version or getting it see how the story compared to the English version and see how you like it this is all from my experience everyone can have different ideas.
