Shenmue I & II Coming To Xbox One, PS4, & PC This Year

Shenmue I & II Coming To Xbox One, PS4, & PC This Year

Both of the titles are regarded as cult classics, and Shenmue II is one of the most requested games for Xbox One backward compatibility even to this day. Hopefully some 4K action for the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Before anyone really delivered an open-world experience Shenmue brought it to the limelight.

Shenmue and Shenmue II originally appeared on the Sega Dreamcast.

Gamers who once experienced this series will be able to compare the differences between the Dreamcast and the updated systems, alongside the gamers that are new to the series when it releases later this year. 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. They certainly didn't disappoint, as it's been confirmed that Shenmue 1 & 2 will be getting the HD treatment for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Shenmue I & II copies, both digital and physical, will be available to pre-order from first party stores and Steam soon.

The bundle isn't just a straight port of the original games, either. No release date was mentioned besides 2018. Not only has Sega offered to re-release the original two games on new platforms with remastered visuals, a choice of modern or classic controls, and the option to listen to either the Japanese or English voiceovers, but there is also Shenmue III on the horizon.
