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.
