Yup, that's right, Yo Suzuki's much beloved kung-fu action-adventure games will land on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2018. The most interesting, yet long anticipated, was a PC, PS4 and Xbox One Shenmue remaster.
The Shenmue collection releasing for modern consoles and PCs features the option to fully change the resolution and the controller type from classic to modern, ensuring that players both old and new can enjoy the legendary series as they wait for the release ofShenmue III.
Like we said, Shenmue 1 and 2 will be hitting modern platforms sometime later this year. The first ever Shenmue title had arrived back in 1999, and had held the distinction of being the most expensive video game ever to have been produced. Pre-orders for the re-release are already live, but a final release date has yet to be announced.
Meanwhile, the successfully Kickstarted third installment, Shenmue 3, is now still in development and will be released later this year.
"This is the definitive version of these all-time classics and will be the best Shenmue experience to date".
Gamespot, however, has pointed out that based on Sega's announcement, the "Shenmue" 1 and 2 collection pack is not something that can be considered to be full-on HD remasters of the classic games.
KitGuru Says: Shenmue is a fairly niche game, but its presence at Sony's E3 conference in 2015 got a lot of people interested in the series for the first time.
