The North American publisher Tokyopop announced at its second online discussion panel ("webinar") on Wednesday that it will publish Koichi Sumimaru's .hack//4Koma manga on April 6, 2010. The four-panel gag comedy manga re-imagines Kite, Atoli, Haseo, and the other characters from the .hack//G.U. role-playing game trilogy. Tokyopop has published most of the other manga tie-ins from the .hack franchise, while Bandai Entertainment released most of the anime including the .hack//G.U. Trilogy movie. According to the Amazon retail website, Ryan Peterson is translating this 192-page manga as he did for .Hack//G.U.+ and .Hack//XXXX.
Tokyopop has also officially announced several titles that were previously revealed through retailers, such as .hack//Alcor, .hack//CELL, Deadman Wonderland, and Hanako and the Teller of Allegory.
