Thats not a surprise at all. It'd take a massive amount of bugging ta get 'em to throw together a premium edition for people overseas with only 5 weeks ta spare until launch. An theres no promise that a premium edition released over here would be exactly the same as the one japans getting. If history is anything ta go by we'd prolly get a steelbook, soundtrack (sampler!), and artbook. Translate an audio drama cd and light novel? Ya right! Even so I'd send 'em an email (not on book/twit). If we want the series to continue, nevermind getting localized, it dun hurt ta let 'em know directly every now an again!

Guess we can just rely on people who do get the Japanese premium edition to upload the new CD and such.

I'd like to see the novel and audio drama as well however which companies were involved the creation of the media outside of CC2 and Bandai Namco?

You mean publisher? In North America it was Tokyopop that brought over all the .hack manga and novels, but I think they've since shut down.

Sort of. They shut down, but have since relaunched. However, they are sticking to US creators (and Disney) for the time being (and letting RightStuf publish their books on demand) instead of dealing with licenses anymore, so it is unlikely we will see them pick up dothack again, unfortunately. I'd put my money on Yenpress picking it up if anyone does.

I guess all of it really. Not just Tokyo Pop, but Kondansha, Bee Train, Funimation and Lien as well. There might companies here who might be willing to get involved but I'm still trying to figure out who has the licensing rights over RagTime, Innocent Call and what sort of format they could use to deliver the extra content. And maybe how the owner could partner up with NB and CC2 to attach the extra content as DLC for the non premium editions of the game and so on. I spoken with Tokyo Pop over e-mail before so I don't think they're unreachable people if more fans wanted to speak with them. So I think it might be a matter of who owns what over where.

I doubt Tokyopop owns the western rights to .hack books forever. Like you say, they were licenses. Those tend to expire and those may have only been on a per-title basis. I'd say its the rest of the manga/novel thats dropped the ball in the wake of Tokyopop's semi-demise. That and Bamco probably not caring all that much about pushing for this stuff ta keep coming to the west.

To stay on topic, you guys can import the Japanese LE. It's only roughly $100 - which isn't bad for an import.

I wish SA also had a premium edition, almost nothing was translated, or adapted for Brazil, and in Portuguese, we are unfortunately forgotten.
