Shenmue I & II Priced At $29.99, Featuring Achievements

Shenmue HD Remaster Announced – Coming to Xbox, PC and PS4

The re-release will stay true to the originals with modernised features including fully scalable screen resolution, choice of modern or classic control schemes, PC graphics options, an updated user interface and the option to enjoy either the original Japanese or English voiceovers.

Shenmue fans around the world had much to celebrate last weekend as SEGA announced that it will finally be re-releasing the original pair of classic games to consoles and PC later this year, and now some new details have been revealed regarding the anticipated collection.

Shenmue 1 and 2 were originally exclusive to the Sega Dreamcast, with the first game arriving in 1999 and the sequel landing in 2001. The official announcement trailer is not enough to base on, either, since Sega noted at the start that "This trailer uses pre-release footage, and represents a work in progress". One of these is definitely the mechanics that allowed to fast forward the time in the second chapter, absent in the first chapter Shenmue and also in its HD version.

Shenmue is an action-adventure game created, produced and directed by Yu Suzuki, and - at the time - held the record for the most expensive game ever made. The most interesting, yet long anticipated, was a PC, PS4 and Xbox One Shenmue remaster. Just because it didn't stand the test of time doesn't mean it didn't have some well-remembered games, however, and a pair of them are about to make a return to modern platforms.
