Shenmue I & II Searching for Sailors on PS4 in 2018

During SEGA Fest 2018 in Japan, SEGA announced that their most beloved saga, Shenmue would be experiencing a comeback in the form of re-releases for its first two games, Shenmue I & II. Luckily, Shenmue III is expected to launch on PC in 2018 so the franchise may get another chance if the rerelease doesn't live up to expectations.

The release will be worldwide, however, in Japan, it will not be coming to the Xbox One (presumably given the console's small install base there), only to the PS4.


The publisher has revealed that both Shenmue I & II are going to see release for modern devices. These revolutionary masterpieces deliver a gripping story of retribution as Ryo Hazuki sets out to avenge his father's death and attempts to unravel the secrets behind a mysterious artifact known as the "Dragon Mirror".

For more updates on the upcoming remasters, keep checking up with OnlySP on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. There'll be new resolution options, as well as a choice of classic and modern control schemes, an updated user interface, and the option to enjoy the titles with either English or Japanese dialogue. 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. If you love the Yakuza series, this re-release is worth buying.
