Shenmue 1 and 2 Coming to Modern Platforms

Sega followed up on the critical success of Shenmue in 2001 with the equalling impressive Shenmue II for the original Xbox and Dreamcast. SEGA stated that in this release fans will be able to choose between English and Japanese voiceovers, choose between classic or modern controls, and "more". Before anyone really delivered an open-world experience Shenmue brought it to the limelight.

Along with announcing a new micro-console, Sega has excited gamers by sharing the news that Shenmue and Shenmue II are to be released on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime in 2018.

According to a press release from Sega, Shenmue I & II will contain definitive versions of both games. The game that once called the Dreamcast its home will finally be experienced the way it should've been all along, on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.

That said, the third game, Shenmue 3 has been in development for quite some time now and apparently we have not heard much from the developers, regarding the upcoming game.

We're told that the re-releases will stay true to the original and will come with the original feature set including jujitsu combat, investigative elements, RPG elements, and mini games. These new versions will include "fully scalable screen resolution", an updated UI, and PC graphics options. No release date was mentioned besides 2018. Developed by original Shenmue director Yu Suzuki, Shenmue III went to Kickstarter back in 2015, and hit its minimum goals in record time.
