.hack//GU Trilogy

Trilogy is a 85 minute CG animation being released on DVD and Bluray on March 25th in Japan, and will retell the story of the //G.U. games, with a new level of cinematic detail beyond what can be done in a PS2 game.

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1fBQEU4HeY

Thank Knight2 on HongFire for the info. The high-res trailer link is here

The trailer is pretty awesome, but it is taking a pretty far divergence from the game it seems. Wonder what will ultimately happen in it. Wonder if the error messages that flash by have anything to do with it. Also didn't see Gaspard or Silabus in it, maybe he never runs into them and never starts leading Canard and it stunts his "growing up"? Or it could be infected Atoli stabbing him... Anyway if nothing else it looks like it is an awesome piece of animation, maybe it'll give Advent Children a run in the fight scene department at least.

My group has announced a joint for the movie. We've also fansubbed the trailer as well in a tad bit higher quality than the link in the main post.

I fear that it will turn out to be another Advent Children; that is, heavy on the cool factor but light on everything else. Divergence from the original storyline is fine by me, as long as they make it a coherent logical story.

I do like the quick shot in the trailer though of Haseo and Atoli making out. Yeah, I picked her as the card recipient :P

The same? From what I saw in the trailer, there are too many different scenes compare to the game, so don't get your hope high .

@velocity7: Are your group AQS fansub?

I liked Vol 3... The ending was interesting.

This one looked really great, totally new storyline thats different from the games and GU+, though the AIDA Atoli really looked very similar to the one in GU+.

Nah, this movie doesn't require knowledge of the games. Also seems it may not require knowledge of .hack//Roots, either.

I think having knowledge of .hack//roots probably would make you enjoy the movie better but yeah, I highly doubt you need it. Afterall, you don't need to watch Roots in order to play the game.

Hmmm..interesting well from what I hear this movie will follow the manga version rather then the games. which means a whole different story. Can't wait.

What especially got me was the trailer that had the scene with:

I'm also very interested in how the Avatar Battles will be carried out. I imagine that it would be extremely fast-paced, comparable to the

It could also be similar artistically to Zone of the Enders...

I don't really think it can bring the most of the game. Moreover, it's only 80 minutes..?

And not to mention the fight between Skeith and Innis might not exist, replaced by lovey-dovey moments between Haso and Atoli (thoughts based on the trailer). I think they're only giving us emo-eyecandy, like battles, Berserk-Haseo, etc.

Since the game is already out, perhaps there wouldn't be many people would protest about the story content though, since maybe they want the looks only too.

BIG NEWS! A new .hack//TRILOGY Trailer has been relesed and from the looks of it they'll try to cover EVERYTHING...

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=-yB9pub9ycc

Also rumor has it they may make a "universal" .hack which includes all the past characters if this one becomes a hit. But I have no evidence besides the rumor to back this up.

The DVD/Blu-ray was pushed back to March. It was originally a January release, but they delayed the home video release so they could have a short theatrical run instead.
