Shenmue remasters are coming this year

Shenmue remasters are coming this year

Fans have been asking Sega to release modern remakes of Shenmue and Shenmue II for more than a decade now, but it looks like the publisher will finally acquiesce to those demands later this year. The re-release will stay true to the originals with modernised 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.

It has been a few years since Shenmue 3 was first funded on Kickstarter, and while news has been slim, we did hear back in January that we should expect a release later this year. Its sequel followed in 2001, although it was only released on Dreamcast in Europe and Japan; the game was later ported to the original Xbox in 2002.

During the weekend, SEGA has provided a couple unexpected announcements about its hardware and software lineup.

Sega also needs to elaborate a bit more on graphical upgrades. judging by the screenshots now available, the main improvement will be a resolution increase.

Shenmue was one of the first games with a persistent open world, day/night and NPC cycles, and weather changes. It has also been revealed that lots of graphical improvements will be making their way into these Shenmue games, but bear in mind that they will not be full on HD remakes or remasters.
