It's Finally Happening - This Iconic Game Is Getting Remastered
Shenmue 1 & 2 are coming to Ps4, Xbox One and PC! Here are all the details.
Sega has confirmed that 1999's classic Shenmue is finally getting remastered, with both the original game and its sequel releasing together later this year.
"You've asked, we listened and we're extremely excited to finally announce that Shenmue I & II are coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in one package!" says Sega via a tweet over the weekend. "Both games will feature Japanese and English voice overs, the choice of classic or modern controls and more! #ShenmueSaved"
We knew it was coming - Sega's been teasing us for a couple of years now - but this is the first time we've had definitive confirmation. The re-release is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, in both physical and digital editions, and marks the first time the original game has been available on a console that isn't Sega's own Dreamcast system.
As well as both Japanese and English voice work, there'll also be extra features for PC players, including a choice between retro and contemporary control schemes, and scalable screen resolutions.
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. The long-anticipated follow-up, Shenmue III, is also due for release later this year following a highly successful Kickstarter campaign.
