Shenmue I & II remaster officially announced with first trailer

Shenmue I & II remaster officially announced with first trailer

They've been talking about it for years, if not decades, but Sega has at last confirmed it's working on remasters of Shenmue I and II for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC - with a Nintendo Switch version also being hinted at.

A few screenshots of the two Shenmue games have been released by the makers, and looking at them makes it apparent that no HD remastering has gone into them.

After details emerged this week that Shenmue I & II would be ported to current-gen consoles, further information has come out regarding the Dreamcast classic's price point and developer. Shenmue I & II is set within engrossing real-time open worlds that feel truly alive thanks to day-to-night cycles and weather changes, with a population of civilians who follow their own schedules.

The first Shenmue was released in late 1999, and it put players in control of Ryo Hazuki, a teenager living in Yokosuka, Japan in 1986.

Saudi Arabia has expressed its full support to the US, British and French military operations against targets in Syria. The Prime Minister arrived here on the special invitation of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on a two-day visit.

In Shenmue II, Ryo crosses the sea to Hong Kong and ventures deeper into the criminal underworld to unravel the mysteries of the Dragon Mirror that his father kept hidden.

However, apparently both games will benefit from improved textures, higher resolutions, an updated user interface, and graphical options on PC.

Shenmue III is also slated to release on PlayStation 4 and PC later this year.
