Shenmue I and II Announced for Xbox One

Shenmue I and II Announced for Xbox One

As Kotaku notes, both Shenmue I and Shenmue II will be arriving for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year, giving a whole lot of gamers some serious deja vu.

Since their original release, Shenmue I & II have established a passionate following and are revered as one of gaming's greatest series of all time.

The upcoming re-releases will come with several enhancements for current-gen hardware but they're neither full HD remakes nor remasters.

They were originally released for the Dreamcast in 2000 and 2001, and Shenmue II also made its way to Xbox in 2003.

We still don't have a release date for Shenmue I & II but we'll update our readers when Sega makes an announcement. Ryo ventures deeper into the criminal underworld, meeting martial arts masters who aid him on his journey and offer insight into his father's death, and unravels the mysteries of the Dragon Mirror that his father kept hidden. 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.

While the games haven't been fully remastered from the ground-up as such, players will still be able to enjoy a bunch of new features, including a revamped user interface, modern control options, English and Japanese voice acting, and fully scalable screen resolution.
