The set will be sold digitally as well as physically for the PS4, the Xbox One and PC. This could be based on Sega's earlier comment back in 2016 that two of the biggest issues coming in the way of "Shenmue" 1 and 2 being brought back are the quality of the originals and the work needed to secure the licenses for all the products and logos that appeared in them. The third installment in the series ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and is expected to be out later this year.

Fan favorites from the Sega Dreamcast era, Shenmue 1 and Shenmue 2 have just been announced to be headed to modern platforms and PC.

The remastered versions of Shenmue and Shenmue II will preserve all of the content from the original releases but will feature some modern-day upgrades.

Shenmue is an action-adventure game created, produced and directed by Yu Suzuki, and - at the time - held the record for the most expensive game ever made. Pre-orders for the re-release are already live, but a final release date has yet to be announced.

KitGuru Says: Shenmue is a fairly niche game, but its presence at Sony's E3 conference in 2015 got a lot of people interested in the series for the first time. The games had a level of detail on par with current franchises such as Grand Theft Auto and Fallout.Keep in mind that they aren't complete remasters or remakes as originally rumoured.

Players will also be able to choose between a couple of control settings - classic and modern - and they can choose to have an English voiceover option, or opt for the traditional Japanese soundtrack with subtitles.
