SEGA kicked off its annual SEGA FES with a bang. This year’s Tokyo-based event began with some big news: the return of the beloved Shenmue franchise. Catching fans off guard, SEGA revealed that Shenmue I & II will be remastered and packaged together for a re-release on all current-generation consoles & PC. New features will include upgraded graphics, the option to switch between Japanese or English voices, two different control schemes and an elevated interface.
The release date hasn’t been revealed, but expect the worldwide debut later this year in the form of physical and digital editions. Watch the official promo trailer below. This news may tie in with last year’s Shenmue III teaser trailer, but only time will tell.
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 pic.twitter.com/EvtcEt5pgn
