Shenmue I & II announced for Xbox One and PC

Shenmue I & II follows protagonist Ryo Hazuki on his quest to avenge his father and unravel the secrets behind a mysterious artifact, the Dragon Mirror.

Undoubtedly, this news has been stolen the night and the next days, because there will be no excuse for not enjoying the classic titles of Shenmue that adorned the life cycle of Dreamcast. Before anyone really delivered an open-world experience Shenmue brought it to the limelight.

Sega has announced a remaster of the original two Shenmue games during tonight's Twitch live stream. In Japan, it will only be released for PlayStation 4.

Following several reports over the last couple of years, Sega kicked off FES 2018 with the announcement that it's re-releasing Shenmue I and Shenmue II for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. After all, since some consider the Shenmue franchise to be among the best video game stories ever told, it needed to be played by more people.

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!

While we know both games will be available in 2018 we are yet to get a confirmed release date.

The bundle isn't just a straight port of the original games, either. These new versions will include "fully scalable screen resolution", an updated UI, and PC graphics options.

This re-release comes at the flawless time, as Shenmue III is now in development, and this port will be ideal to help gamers relive or catch up with the Shenmue trilogy.
