After years of fans praying to the SEGA pantheon, we have finally received their blessing. Shenmue 1 & 2 have been announced, to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.
I remember it being one of the games that really enthralled me back when I played it on the Dreamcast. It was an RPG sim game where you had to keep yourself afloat financially and socially while also investigating clues that pushed your journey further. There were zillions of mini games within the title along with it’s own arcade filled with even more games… I am so happy this is finally happening!
The news reportedly came from a fan festival in Japan amidst the hype of the third installment in the trilogy’s upcoming 2018 release date! For those not in the know of things, that is more than 15 YEARS since the sequel of the game. Check out the official tweet below.
You’ve asked, we listened and we’re extremely excited to finally announce that Shenmue I & II are coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in one package! Both games will feature Japanese and English voice overs, the choice of classic or modern controls and more! #ShenmueSaved
