Shenmue I and II are coming to current gen platforms

Shenmue I and II are coming to current gen platforms

The biggest dream of every DreamCast fan has come true. Sega confirmed the news at Sega Fest 2018, saying these action-adventure classics will be making their way to PS4 in Japan. The set will be sold digitally as well as physically for the PS4, the Xbox One and PC.

Slash Gear, for one, is calling the newly announced releases an HD remake of the original. In the meantime though, Sega will be re-releasing Shenmue 1 and 2 on PC and current generation consoles. The compilation comes with a host of modern 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". 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". The third installment in the series ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and is expected to be out later this year.

Nintendo Switch Getting Classic Sega Games This Summer
The new Switch Sega Ages games will be the work of retro masters M2 (who also handled the original Sega Saturn releases). The first SEGA AGES batch will come out this summer.

Shenmue I & II are available for pre-order from the first-party retailer with pre-orders opening on Steam and other United States and EMEA retailers soon. These revolutionary masterpieces deliver a gripping story of retribution as Ryo Hazuki sets out to avenge his father's death and attempts to unravel the secrets behind a mysterious artefact known as the Dragon Mirror. All we know is that it will be released this year with no exact date.
