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

16 April 2018

Get ready to go on a thrilling voyage across faithful recreations of Japan and Hong Kong, China, in a timeless tale of revenge and mystery when Shenmue I & II launches both physically and digitally on Playstation 4 and XBOX One with a PC release on Steam in 2018. The most interesting, yet long anticipated, was a PC, PS4 and Xbox One Shenmue remaster. In the meantime though, Sega will be re-releasing Shenmue 1 and 2 on PC and current generation consoles.

Players will also be able to choose between a couple of control settings - classic and modern - and they can choose to have an English voiceover option, or opt for the traditional Japanese soundtrack with subtitles. Pre-orders for the re-release are already live, but a final release date has yet to be announced.

Sega is promising that the new "Shenmue" releases will be the "best Shenmue experience to date", but it's not known yet if Sega is upgrading all the graphics of the Dreamcast originals to HD or even higher.

The games will be released in both physical and digital formats, and they'll feature improved textures, which should come as a relief to anyone who remembers the original Dreamcast versions.

Those unfamiliar with the Shenmue series, the first game follows the exploits of teenage martial artist Ryo Hazuki after he returns to his family dojo only to witness a confrontation between his father and a mysterious Chinese man named Lan Di who ends up killing Ryo's father.
