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

In case you weren't aware of, Shenmue I & II will re-release as a collection and will come complete with the original feature set that defined modern gaming, including enthralling jujitsu combat, investigative sleuthing, and RPG elements in addition to memorable mini-games.

Microsoft's own Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb revealed on his blog that Shenmue 1 & 2 is now available for pre-order.

The two games, which originally launched in 1999 and 2001 respectively, are the precursor to the long, long awaited Shenmue III, which is now in development under the watchful eye of franchise creator, Yu Suzuki. Shenmue III is expected to launch sometime in 2019. Sega has released a new trailer confirming the launch, as well as updated a Steam product listing. Players can head over to the official Xbox Marketplace store page which lists the upcoming remastered bundle at $29.99 and lists some of the updated features which include modern/classic controls, updated UI, an option to toggle Japanese dialogue, and fully scalable screen resolutions.

A few minutes later, the same suspect reportedly stole another vehicle at gunpoint near 148th Street and Metcalf. He said it's unclear what led the suspect to go to that home but described it as "bizarre to say the least".

Never mind Shenmue III, for years even the prospect of a remaster of the original games has seemed impossible.

The original Shenmue was first released in 2000 (1999 in Japan) and has only ever been available on Sega's Dreamcast console.

Shenmue and Shenmue II were finally announced as coming to the Xbox One a few months ago at Tokyo Sega FES 2018.
