Bandai Announces .hack

  The diversified Bandai corporation on Thursday confirmed the eventual release of .hack for the PlayStation 2. Bandai also plans to produce a cartoon based on the RPG that's slated to hit Japanese airwaves on April 3. A DVD will be available in a special bundle package the company plans to release in the future. The project has attracted the efforts of the cream of Japan's animation industry, including artists Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, Ito Kazunori and Kochi Mashita. Cyberconnect2--the company responsible for Silent Bomber on the PlayStation--will develop the title. Details on the plot are sparse except for references to a futuristic backdrop featuring virtual reality. The plot of the awkwardly-titled RPG will be broken into fragmented chapters and released as separate games, much like the ill-starred Shenmue franchise. Bandai will drop the plot segments every three months. The regular package carries an MSRP of 3,800 yen (US$28), but more dedicated gamers can also purchase the aforementioned special package for 5,800 (US$43).
