Shenmue I & II HD remaster release date set for August

Shenmue I & II To Launch Next Month On PC And Consoles

Shenmue I & II will also have a few new features for the modern age, including fully scalable resolution, choice of modern or classic control schemes, updated user interface, and choice of English or Japanese voiceovers.

In addition to the new trailer and release date, SEGA also announced that pre-orders for the remastered collection are now live across all platforms. Here's everything you need to know to pre-order Shenmue I & II. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The company had previously stated that the two games would be released as a remaster, but the date was initially leaked by a posting on the Microsoft store.

What makes this intriguing is that at the time of this listing, Sega has yet to officially confirm a release date for the anticipated re-release of both Shenmue games.

These remasters mark the first time either Shenmue 1 or Shenmue 2 will arrive on any modern console.

A double pack containing both Shenmue and Shenmue II will be released on August 20 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Likewise, for "technical reasons" Sega has chosen to port Shenmue 2's Xbox iteration-as opposed to its Dreamcast variant.

We'll have to wait and see how Yu Suzuki's Shenmue III - backed to the tune of $6 million - will end his epic revenge saga.
