.hack//Link is a game for Sony PSP. The game has over 130 returning characters and 33 recruitable partners along with one playable character, Tokio. The story is presented through manga-style visuals.
Players take control of Tokio Kuryuu, a second year junior-high student. He had a normal life until a mysterious transfer student, Saika Amagi, arrived and used a black copy of The World R:X to transport Tokio directly into the game. Tokio finds himself in the central plaza of Mac Anu where the Twilight Knights have been frozen to stone. Schicksal's Fluegel finds Tokio and attempts to freeze him as well, but Kite interferes. Kite gets frozen into stone while protecting Tokio, but manages to release a wild last-minute Data Drain to drive away Fluegel. Kite tells Tokio to become a hero, thus beginning Tokio's journey.
