The first entry in the .hack series launched on PlayStation 2 on June 20, 2002, so today is officially the day to celebrate its 20th anniversary if you fancy yourself a fan. Bandai Namco is marking the occasion in its own way throughout the rest of the year with a few campaigns, starting with a trailer looking back at the history of the series and its various incarnations over the past two decades.
