Shenmue I & II Being Re-Released

Sega just announced that both previously released Shenmue titles are going to be re-released for the current generation of consoles as well as Steam.

This re-release will include modern upgrades such as fully scalable screen resolution, classic or modern controls schemes, PC graphics options, an updated user interface and both Japanese and English audio options.

The first two Shenmue games featured a modern day open world full of characters and stores all on their own schedules, day and night cycles, its own fighting system, mini-games and more- all of which are amazing feats when considering that the titles were originally released in 2000 and 2001.

If you’ve never checked out the Shenmue series, you’ll soon get your chance when Shenmue I & II releases later this year.
