Shenmue I & II Coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC this Year

During a Twitch stream of SEGA FES 2018 (a SEGA festival in Japan) today SEGA announced that due to overwhelming fan demand, Shenmue I & II are making their way to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Re-releasing both games seems to be in preparation for the third entry in the series, which was originally revealed as a Kickstarter project back during Sony's E3 2015 conference.

Since their original release, Shenmue I & II have established a passionate following and are revered as one of gaming's greatest series of all time. In Japan SEGA will be releasing these games on PS4.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Sega, thankfully, is now looking to deliver on that suggestion.

The original Shenmue launched on the Sega Dreamcast in 2000 while the sequel launched in 2002. It should be noted that the PS4, Xbox One, PC versions were announced for USA and European territories. Shenmue I & II copies, both digital and physical, will be available to pre-order from first party stores and Steam soon. There'll be new resolution options, as well as a choice of classic and modern control schemes, an updated user interface, and the option to enjoy the titles with either English or Japanese dialogue. It might not be a ground-up reworking, but it looks like there's enough here to bring the games up to modern standards.

There's no word on a date yet beyond 2018, but this is barmy news.
