Shenmue 1 and 2 Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Shenmue 1 and 2 were originally exclusive to the Sega Dreamcast, with the first game arriving in 1999 and the sequel landing in 2001.

Any video game lover who came of age in the late 1990s probably remembers the Dreamcast, Sega's ill-fated answer to the Nintendo 64 and the final major console the company would ever release.

Shenmue I & II comes complete with the original feature set that defined modern gaming, including enthralling jujitsu combat, investigative sleuthing, and RPG elements in addition to memorable mini-games. All of this takes place in a real-time open world with the day, night, and weather cycles, populated by NPCs that kept schedules of their own. "This is the definitive version of these all-time classics and will be the best Shenmue experience to date".




While the games haven't been fully remastered from the ground-up as such, players will still be able to enjoy a bunch of new features, including a revamped user interface, modern control options, English and Japanese voice acting, and fully scalable screen resolution.

KitGuru Says: Shenmue is a fairly niche game, but its presence at Sony's E3 conference in 2015 got a lot of people interested in the series for the first time.

Sega hasn't announced pricing details or an exact release date for Shenmue I & II, but the collection will be available at retail and digitally from the PlayStation and Xbox Stores, as well as Steam.
