posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Namco Bandai Games began streaming a commercial for its .hack//The Movie+Versus Hybrid Pack, which will ship on June 28. The first teaser trailer was streamed last month. PlayStation 3 users will be able to watch the film and play the game off of the same Blu-ray Disc. (The disc will play just the anime portion on regular Blu-ray Disc players.)
The film itself is set in 2024, when children have lived their entire lives since birth in a world connected by networks. A cheerful 14-year-old middle school girl named Sora Yūki (Summer Wars' Nanami Sakuraba) has no interest in games, but her friends get her to go into the popular network game "The World." However, due to "a certain incident" in The World, anomalies start occurring in the real world.
The regular edition of the pack will cost 7,140 yen (about US$85), and the deluxe "The World Edition" will cost 10,500 yen (about US$125). The film opened in Japanese theaters this past January.
