Shenmue Remasters Get Release Dates

Officially, Shenmue and Shenmue II's upcoming port bundle, coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One ahead of the launch of Shenmue III, doesn't have a firm release date.

Shenmue I & II will come with some new features not found in the original releases, as well as PC exclusive features such as graphics options, updated user interface and more. The Shenmue I & II physical edition is also available to order, bundling a double-sided poster and a reversible cover that includes the game's original artwork. Without official word from Sega, however, fans are cautioned to take the news with a grain of salt even if the dates appear to be accurate. However, the more interesting aspect of this store page is that the product has a release date listed on August 21, 2018.

Shenmue 1 & 2 arrives in 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You'll be able to choose between classic or modern controls, they have scalable screen resolution, and for the first time in the United States, you can play with Japanese audio.

On its first release nearly 20 years ago, Shenmue was among the most expensive games ever developed, with its production reckoned to cost as much as $70 million.

Shenmue I & II comes complete with the original feature set that defined modern gaming, including enthralling jujitsu combat, investigative sleuthing, and RPG elements in addition to memorable mini-games.
