Famitsu recently revealed details for a new fighting game coming to the PS3 that’s set in the .hack universe. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the franchise, .hack is about a MMORPG called The World that players take part in by way of virtual reality headsets. While very little is known about the game as of yet, it’s been reported that .hack//Versus will be bundled in the upcoming Blu-ray package for .hack//The Movie. A variety of screenshots were also released, showcasing the game’s more realistic art design as well as a mysterious new character named 9. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Next thing you know everything will be a fighter. Still, it's a pretty good series by itself so I'll keep some optimism.
Sometimes you just need a little less gun.

I wouldn't keep my hopes up. Being bundled with the movie probably means they didn't really put much effort in it and it'll be more like a gimmicky game than anything.

....



But hey, I could be wrong.

Send me a PM if you decide to add me on PSN, so I don't mistake you for a random Friend whore.

Why is Kite getting called Sora?  Wait... this isn't Kite, is it?  Why is Kite being replaced by a ditzy teenage girl?

Oh wait, this is a Namco franchise now, isn't it?  Never mind.

I played the first four video games and felt ripped off in terms of story. The commercials built up solving this mystery about the secret behind the game, so I spent four games grinding monsters and hurting myself with Data Drain so I could hack into protected areas (even though three and four, the admins help you so security locks don't make sense and sorry spoilers) for this amazing secret.

It ended up being a story about some dude having a crush on a writer and then coding a game based on her book, and writing a self-insert daughter between them into the coding.

I felt betrayed that I spent roughly $150 on this series ($50 for the first two, the others i bought later and used) to get a ridiculously unsatisfying payoff.

Oh yeah, ontopic:

Fighting game could work. The potential movesets are pretty good between classes, and variation between the characters could be interesting. Just as long as they don't have Orca and P2 Orca (aka "Bear") both in the game as separate characters.

I only saw the first anime (SIGN) and I thought it was really really good and the music was phenomenal but I don't really care about the rest of the franchise.

what i'm saying is that if they include more than a token few SIGN characters I will be interested in this

That's Orca. Bear looks exactly like Orca but with blue skin instead of green, and his hair is darker too.

Also the fact that he's hanging with Balmung (the second-strongest player in the game) and Kite (his IRL best friend) should be proof enough.

Orca's entire face is blue/green, without the unpainted jaw and mouth.  Unless they changed his design specifically to look more like Bear, that's Bear.  Of course, they could solve the issue by just not recycling all their damn character designs.

Also, that's not Kite.
