Great to hear they're bringing them to modern consoles, shame the Switch has been left out (E3 or Ninty Direct may amend this though), are these games similar to the Yakuza franchises or not?

They've up-rezed the game but the background and character textures look blurry and dated. Perhaps it would have been equivalent to remaking it.

Shenmue 1 & 2 Pricing Revealed, Achievements Confirmed on All Platforms

Shenmue 1 & 2 pricing has been confirmed for the North American release, with players able to pick up the "definitive version" of both games for $29.99. It's also been confirmed the title will support achievements across all platforms.

YouTuber Adam Koralik shared the details on and in a video following his trip to SEGA in Japan. "I'm now allowed to inform you of the retail price of the Shenmue 1 and 2 re-release," he tweeted. "$29.99 USD gets you the collection. Applies to all US versions. Global pricing will reflect similar pricing in local currencies."

In his YouTube update, Koralik confirmed the game will support achievements across the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions.

The re-release of Shenmue and Shenmue 2 was announced last week, and while SEGA didn't go into the specifics of what kind of graphical enhancements we can expect, it called the release the "definitive version" of both games, that will include an updated UI, the choice of modern or classic controls, and both English and Japanese voiceovers.

The console versions will get both a digital and retail release, while PC players will be get a digital-only release on Steam.

Shenmue 3 was announced at E3 2015, and is being published by Deep Silver. The game is set for release in the second half of 2018.

I hope they will announce the release date at E3 and it would be good if it's coming before September to avoid some busy gaming schedule.

This news has just made my gaming dreams come true! I haven’t been playing as much lately, but hearing this news, after wishing for it for over a decade is just amazing!

No doubt the game will feel dated, but its a great chance to just feel what the game was like all those years ago. I think a Christmas play through of shenmue 1 will be in order!

I do hope that the younger gamers, or ones who did not get a sega dreamcast just purchase this and give it a go, not for the gameplay or graphics, but just for the sheer atmosphere and to simply say that they played one of the most talked about games ever made.

Thank you sega!

I knew about this a few hours after it was announced, but just haven’t been very active posting messages lately.

I really can’t wait to play the first one as its been years! I replayed the majority of shenmue 2 on the xbox/ 360 years ago, but really am looking forward to the slower paced original.

It just boggles the mind how its nearly been 20 years since the original came out on the dreamcast and just makes me feel very old! I remember playing it during the christmas period for hours on end and really got engrossed. I do hope that i have a similar feeling when replaying it later this year.

I'm more excited that other people get to play it, Dobuita is my favourite game world, everyone should visit there.

Glad to here it's getting a modern control scheme, moving your view with the d-pad was ridiculous, the controller was always my biggest gripe about the Dreamcast.

I watched Outside Xbox's Shenmue 2 series a year or so ago and while it was entertaining to watch, can't see myself getting it again, not least because I barely played the Dreamcast versions OR Xbox 360 ones even though I owned both games and Shenmue 2 on both systems. :fp:

Quick side note, at the time a gay mate of mine was convinced Ryo was gay and I posted on the EDGE forums about it and it got printed in EDGE magazine. :o

£22.49! Fantastic deal imo. I will probably get a boxed copy, but wish they did a special edition in the UK.
