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

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

Sega followed up on the critical success of Shenmue in 2001 with the equalling impressive Shenmue II for the original Xbox and Dreamcast.

Both games will be featuring modern controls and will also be providing the classic controls, for those who would want to experience the game in the original Shenmue feel. With an emphasis on the finer details, Shenmue helped form a rich open world, and its slow and atmospheric pacing helped it claim the status of a cult classic.

According to a press release from Sega, Shenmue I & II will contain definitive versions of both games.

The first game in the series, Shenmue begins the tale as Ryo travels around Yokosuka, Japan, gathering clues about his father's murder and dealing with nefarious gangsters along the way.




That said, the third game, Shenmue 3 has been in development for quite some time now and apparently we have not heard much from the developers, regarding the upcoming game.

Sega, thankfully, is now looking to deliver on that suggestion. In Japan, it will only be released for PlayStation 4. The publisher has revealed that both Shenmue I & II are going to see release for modern devices.

The bundle isn't just a straight port of the original games, either. Players will have the option of Japanese or English voiceovers, modern or classic controls, scalable resolution, and "PC graphics options". Luckily, Shenmue III is expected to launch on PC in 2018 so the franchise may get another chance if the rerelease doesn't live up to expectations.
