Shenmue and Shenmue 2 Announced for Xbox One, PS4 and PC

Great news for SEGA fans as the long requested return of the original Shenmue titles for modern gaming platforms has been announced by SEGA in Japan.

The original Shenmue released on the SEGA Dreamcast all the way back in 1999, and although there has been a port on the original Xbox – we were certainly due another release on modern consoles and PC.

Well the time has finally arrived and with new features, including Japanese or English voice overs (an important option for any serious gamer!). Shenmue and Shenmue 2 are combined within one release and will be available later in 2018.
