The latest Weekly Famitsu magazine issue has brought us another new information batch for .hack//G.U. Last Recode, which divulges more information about the new Vol.4 Reconnection. This time it is reported that in this new volume, Ovan will be finally joining Haseo as a party member, presumably after being freed from the giant ice stalactite as shown in a past information batch. We have translated the details from the Famitsu coverage, which you can read right below.
Ovan's Lost Weapon has been unexpectedly upgraded to Dual Guns called Twin Stars Flashing Twilight. Due to this, his normal attack string will now consist of attacks from the Phoenix rifle, Qilin pistol, and also a wide-range attack with his third arm.
Famitsu also introduces two exclusive Arts for Ovan, which are as follows:
- True Neighbor - After jumping, Ovan will launch shockwave attacks from both his dual guns and the third arm simultaneously. It can attack multiple enemies in a wide range, and the shockwaves will leave a scar on the ground.
- Restrained Neighbor - Ovan will encase enemies with a dome-shaped energy and then skewer all trapped enemies with multiple thorns from his third arm, dealing powerful damage to them.
.hack//G.U. Last Recode will be released for PlayStation 4 and Steam, where it will be out in Japan on November 1 and in North America on November 3. In the meantime, you can also check out how this .hack//G.U. remake compares with the original PS2 game.
Bandai Namco released screenshots of Ovan and his arts, which you can find in the gallery below:
