Shenmue 1 and 2 are coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC

The Shenmue collection will receive both a physical and digital release. Sega confirmed the news at Sega Fest 2018, saying these action-adventure classics will be making their way to PS4 in Japan.

Like we said, Shenmue 1 and 2 will be hitting modern platforms sometime later this year. Pre-orders for the re-release are already live, but a final release date has yet to be announced. With that in mind, it makes sense to re-release the original games to try and grow the fan base. The compilation comes with a host of modern features, including "fully scalable screen resolution, choice of modern or classic control schemes, PC graphics options, an updated user interface, and the option to enjoy either the original Japanese or English voiceovers".

The recently announced remasters for Shenmue and Shenmue 2 will be an opportunity to get better acquainted with the Shenmue lore before the crowdfunded third title arrives and a YouTuber has revealed the HD collection will cost $29.99.

Those unfamiliar with the Shenmue series, the first game follows the exploits of teenage martial artist Ryo Hazuki after he returns to his family dojo only to witness a confrontation between his father and a mysterious Chinese man named Lan Di who ends up killing Ryo's father.

The video below is the announcement trailer for "Shenmue " 1 and 2, which Sega has just announced to be coming out later this year as a two-in-one bundle.
