Sega explains why Shenmue 1 and 2 run at 30Hz on PC

Sega just dropped a trailer today revealing the release date for the relaunching of the games that started it all. Thankfully, Shenmue 1 and 2 are being packaged together and re-released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 21. However, the more interesting aspect of this store page is that the product has a release date listed on August 21, 2018.

The new features that have been added to the games include scalable resolutions, updated UI elements, PC graphics options, modern and classic control schemes to choose from, and the inclusion of both Japanese and English voice work.

If you want to re-play these games-or see why so many fans contributed over $6 million to Shenmue III's ickstarter-you might be looking to pre-order the collection.

The games will be available digitally of course, but Sega indicated that it would also be releasing boxed versions as well.

A double pack containing both Shenmue and Shenmue II will be released on August 20 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Check out the Shenmue FAQ as it appears on the Sega website, and know that the originals' in-game arcade games are fully playable here.

Likewise, for "technical reasons" Sega has chosen to port Shenmue 2's Xbox iteration-as opposed to its Dreamcast variant.
