Sega's beloved Dreamcast classic Shenmue is coming to modern consoles.

During a Twitch stream of SEGA FES 2018 (a SEGA festival in Japan) today SEGA announced that due to overwhelming fan demand, Shenmue I & II are making their way to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

London, England - April 13, 2018 - SEGA® Europe proud to announce that the pioneering epic saga Shenmue™ I & II is to be re-released for a new generation.

Shenmue I and II Remasters set for 2018 Release

The first Shenmue originally launched in 1999 and, at the time of its release, had the distinction of being the most expensive video game ever created. Set in 1980s Japan and China as teenager Ryo Hazuki searches for the mysterious man who murdered his father, the Shenmue series was one of the most influential franchises of the early 2000s, paving the way for open world adventures for years to come.

The bundle isn't just a straight port of the original games, either.

The new versions of the game will feature updated user interfaces, choice of modern or classic controls, fully scalable screen resolutions, and for the first time, Japanese audio available for a global audience. It might not be a ground-up reworking, but it looks like there's enough here to bring the games up to modern standards. The third part of the franchise will arrive a full 17 years after its predecessor, and will look to finally continue the story of the Shenmue franchise as a whole.
