Shenmue 1 & 2 Coming To PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Year

SEGA has followed up on its promise of a "huge surprise" by announcing that Shenmue I & II will be coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year. With an emphasis on the finer details, Shenmue helped form a rich open world, and its slow and atmospheric pacing helped it claim the status of a cult classic.

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.

Shenmue and Shenmue II originally appeared on the Sega Dreamcast. The games will be available as a bundle package, and will hit the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

London, England - April 13, 2018 - SEGA® Europe proud to announce that the pioneering epic saga Shenmue™ I & II is to be re-released for a new generation.

Referring to them as the "definitive versions" of the games, Sega promises that the new releases will feature "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". Developed by original Shenmue director Yu Suzuki, Shenmue III went to Kickstarter back in 2015, and hit its minimum goals in record time.

But it seems 2018 is going to be Shenmue year.
