Shenmue 1 and 2 Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Shenmue 1 and 2 Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

The games are at once polished and yet filled with rough edges, and it's very likely that some modern tweaks (right down to camera and character control) will be required not to repel first-timers from sinking into the full experience. The series, which debuted on SEGA's Dreamcast system in 1999, will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC later this year.

On top of this, there'll be an element of novelty in the likes of the achievements included on all the platforms (PC via Steam, PS4's Trophies, and Xbox One), and there will be the opportunity to choose among Japanese and English dubs. That will surely come as welcome news to those who found the game's English voiceovers to be the source of some awkward, unintentionally amusing moments. Their release was announced yesterday, and according to the commentary, Sega, the new edition of Shenmue 1 and 2 are not simple reprints, and improved.

The developer has provided very slight details about the Shenmue I & II package but has indeed hosted a small event for few Internet personalities and selected members of the press, who had a chance to be given some additional particulars. That sequel saw series protagonist Ryo Hazuki travel to Hong Kong in order to pursue his father's killers.


At present, there's no word on whether or not those who play through these collections will be able to carry any information over to Shenmue III.

We still don't have a release date for Shenmue I & II but we'll update our readers when Sega makes an announcement.
