Sega has announced Shenmue I & II for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. This remastered version of the two Dreamcast classics will arrive later this year.
This is the definitive version of these all-time classics and will be the best Shenmue experience to date. The re-release will stay true to the originals with modernized 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.
With Shenmue III on the horizon, this remaster is quite expected. But it’s great to see the game being released both physically and digitally. Also the addition of the above mentioned modernized features is very welcome. Is Shenmue still as good as we remember it to be? Probably not. But it’s great that classics are not forgotten!
