    Shenmue and Shenmue 2 coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC

    Shenmue I & II are coming to PS4, Xbox One...


    The first two Shenmue games are coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One later this year, Sega announced today. The re-release, Shenmue 1 & 2, will be released sometime in 2018.

    Sega calls the Shenmue 1 & 2 re-release the “definitive version” of the classic adventure games with modernized features such as “fully scalable screen resolution, choice of modern or classic control schemes, PC graphics options, an updated user interface and the option to enjoy either the original Japanese or English voiceovers.”


    The original Shenmue was released for Sega Dreamcast in 1999 and introduced players to Ryo Hazuki, a young martial artist on a journey of discovery and revenge. Sega followed up the ambitious adventure game with a sequel in 2001 for the original Xbox and Sega Dreamcast.

    Yeah that is what I meant, rerelease 1and2 to rekindle interest then release the 3rd. Are you saying number 3 is already confirmed?

    It was confirmed a couple of years ago (via a kick-start) and has been getting updates sporadically since .

    Shenmue 3 was a pretty successful Kickstarter, the game was supposed to be out by now but they've been working on completing it for later this year.

    the first two are a bit of an acquired taste. They're very slow games with lots of really dull stuff to do, mixed with some (at the time) decent fighting bits and a pretty decent story.. when its telling the main story. People I know who finished the games often say its one of the best games they've ever played. I bought a Dreamcast for Shenmue 1 back in the day as it looked amazing for the time.

    Im going to get this as I never got chance to finish either game.
