Update: GAME Watch, which initially reported this story, retracted its statements regarding a .hack game to be included with the .hack//The Movie Blu-Ray release, and said that Unozawa’s comments regarding the game were actually made toward other PlayStation 3 hybrids, such as Macross Frontier.
The Blu-ray release of the movie, which hits theaters in January 2012, will include a “small game,” which will be playable on PlayStation 3, according to Namco Bandai president Shin Unozawa, speaking during a presentation announcing the movie. He didn’t share additional information.
Namco Bandai has done “hybrid discs” in the past. Macross Frontier, which only released in Japan, includes both a game and movie. The game content is only playable on PlayStation 3 while the movie content is playable on both PlayStation 3 and Blu-ray players.
