ESRB rates '.hack//G.U. Last Recode' for Nintendo Switch

An ESRB rating for .hack//G.U. Last Recode has surfaced on the rating board's website, indicating that the JRPG collection is headed to a new platform.

For those unfamiliar, .hack/GU was originally an episodic trilogy of RPGs for PlayStation 2 that released between 2006 and 2007. Last Recode is a remaster of this trilogy — which adds a fourth episode — and released for PlayStation 4 and PC in 2017. You can check out our review of the remaster tetralogy here.


Bandai Namco has not officially announced a Nintendo Switch port for .hack//G.U. Last Recode, but this isn't the first time a Bandai Namco JRPG Switch port was revealed first through a ratings board. An ESRB rating for Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom appeared in April 2021 before being announced by Bandai Namco a month later. Ni no Kuni II for Switch is set to launch next month.

We'll have to stay tuned for official confirmation by Bandai Namco on .hack//G.U. Last Recode.
