Shenmue I & II Priced At $29.99, Featuring Achievements

Shenmue I & II remaster officially announced with first trailer

As Kotaku notes, both Shenmue I and Shenmue II will be arriving for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year, giving a whole lot of gamers some serious deja vu.

Shenmue 1 was released for the Dreamcast in 1999 with a sequel in 2001 for Japan and Europe only. The most interesting, yet long anticipated, was a PC, PS4 and Xbox One Shenmue remaster.

This collection of two games will be offered with fully scalable screen resolution, a choice between modern and classic control schemes, PC graphics options, an enhanced user interface and even an option to switch between Japanese or English voiceovers.

Shenmue is an action-adventure game created, produced and directed by Yu Suzuki, and - at the time - held the record for the most expensive game ever made.

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. 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". With that in mind, it makes sense to re-release the original games to try and grow the fan base.

The games that had you frantically searching for tattooed sailors and bombing around harbours in forklift trucks will be released as a double-pack, which Sega's billed as the "definitive version" of the revenge-driven saga.
