Shenmue I and II Remasters set for 2018 Release

Along with announcing a new micro-console, Sega has excited gamers by sharing the news that Shenmue and Shenmue II are to be released on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime in 2018. Before anyone really delivered an open-world experience Shenmue brought it to the limelight. Both games feature a day-and-night system, variable weather effects, non-player characters with daily schedules, and various minigames, as well as a 3D fighting system similar to Sega's Virtua Fighter series. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will have both physical and digital copies, while the PC version will be available through Steam. After all, since some consider the Shenmue franchise to be among the best video game stories ever told, it needed to be played by more people.

Shenmue I & II follows protagonist Ryo Hazuki on his quest to avenge his father and unravel the secrets behind a mysterious artifact, the Dragon Mirror. There'll be new resolution options, as well as a choice of classic and modern control schemes, an updated user interface, and the option to enjoy the titles with either English or Japanese dialogue.

Shenmue I & II comes with original features like the captivating jujitsu combat, investigative gameplay, role-playing elements, and odd mini-games.

There's no word on a date yet beyond 2018, but this is barmy news. Developed by original Shenmue director Yu Suzuki, Shenmue III went to Kickstarter back in 2015, and hit its minimum goals in record time.
