In .hack//Legend of the Twilight, Shugo and Rena were given the avatars of the famous dot hackers, Kite and Blackrose... Now learn how their legend was born! While playing in The World--the most successful online game in history--a young boy suddenly loses consciousness and falls into a coma after taking a blow to protect his friend Kite from the deadly beams of a strange monster. To save his fallen friend, Kite must log back into this most dangerous game and begin to unravel the mysteries behind his friend's affliction. But understanding the true power of The World may prove as dangerous as it is crucial!
"The World" is a virtual net game that services twenty million players. When a boy with the alias of Kite logs in for the first time, he's joined by his friend Yasuhiko - alias Orca - and together the two travel to find enemies. However, soon after a mysterious woman named Aura appears, followed by a fierce enemy that defeats Orca and sends him into a coma in real life. Determined to save Orca, Kite travels through The World, gaining both strength and companions such as Blackrose and Mistral along the way. In order to bring back Orca he must defeat strange monsters known as the Eight Phases, and the only way to do so is to use the power of a mysterious bracelet - an illegal item that threatens the safety of the entirety of The World. With system admin Balmung watching Kite's every move, can Kite manage to save his friend?
