Shenmue I & II Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Shenmue I & II Searching for Sailors on PS4 in 2018

Now Sega has granted the wishes of everyone because Shenmue 1 and Shenmue 2 will be released later this year for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One consoles. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will have both physical and digital copies, while the PC version will be available through Steam. Before anyone really delivered an open-world experience Shenmue brought it to the limelight.

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. It should be noted that the PS4, Xbox One, PC versions were announced for USA and European territories.

The first Shenmue was released only on the Sega Dreamcast and not many people had played it sadly.

Sega has announced a remaster of the original two Shenmue games during tonight's Twitch live stream. No release dates have been announced yet but more news should be revealed very soon. The compilation comes with a host of modern features, including "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 third part of the franchise will arrive a full 17 years after its predecessor, and will look to finally continue the story of the Shenmue franchise as a whole.
