The .hack franchise will combine an anime series, an episodic dungeon-crawling PS2 game, and four animated features (each volume packaged with each chapter of the game). In the year 2007, players across the world enjoy an online dungeon-hacking game, "The World". Something has gone wrong in this online world, and a player with the handle "Kite" must use his special abilities within the game to uncover the truth behind this. Chat with NPCs "outside" your game to gain important clues.
