While we still have to wait for the release of Shenmue 3, fans of the franchise will be happy to know that the first two games in the series are now getting HD remasters. This will give more players a chance to play these classics.
The first Shenmue was released only on the Sega Dreamcast and not many people had played it sadly. After that Shenmue 2 also released for the Sega Dreamcast with a port coming later on the first Xbox. However, PlayStation, Nintendo and PC gamers never had a chance to play any game from the franchise.
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. Much like other re-releases, they will have graphics upscaled to HD as well as a chance to use classic or modern control schemes.
More graphical options will be available for PC gamers and both Japanese and English voiceovers are available for you to listen to as well. If you love the Yakuza series, this re-release is worth buying. No release dates have been announced yet but more news should be revealed very soon.
