Sega to Release Shenmue I & II for Current Gen Consoles

Experience Shenmue like never before

Shenmue I & II

While Shenmue III may still be a while away, fans of the series should still have plenty to celebrate about today thanks to the official announcement by SEGA at this year’s SEGA Fest that Shenmue I & II is on its way to modern-day consoles.

An updated version of the original duology, Shenmue I & II will once again have players taking on the mantle of Ryo Hazuki as he sets out to avenge his father’s death and attempts to uncover the secrets of the mysterious Dragon Mirror. Along the way, players will be able to engage enemies in jujitsu combat, perform investigative sleuthing, participate in a variety of mini games, and more as they traverse through the game’s real-time open worlds.

Shenmue I & II is being touted as the definitive Shenmue experience, and will feature the ability to play with either the original or updated control schemes, scalable screen resolution, enhanced UI, additional PC graphical options, and dual English/Japanese voiceovers.

Shenmue I & Iis slated for a 2018 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Are you excited to dive back into the world of Shenmue once again? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
