Experience Shenmue like never before
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 & II is 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!
