SEGA’s most requested re-release of all time finally comes to a new generation. Shenmue delivers an epic story of revenge within a unique open world that is still unrivalled in depth and detail. Return to the epic saga that defined modern gaming. The saga begins…again.

Originally released for the Dreamcast in 2000 and 2001, Shenmue I & II is an open world action adventure combining jujitsu combat, investigative sleuthing, RPG elements, and memorable mini-games. It pioneered many aspects of modern gaming, including open world city exploration, and was the game that coined the Quick Time Event (QTE). It was one of the first games with a persistent open world, where day cycles to night, weather changes, shops open and close and NPCs go about their business all on their own schedules. Its engrossing epic story and living world created a generation of passionate fans, and the game consistently makes the list of "greatest games of all time".

In 1986, teenage jujitsu artist Ryo Hazuki returns to the dojo of his father, Iwao Hazuki, only to witness his murder by a Chinese man, Lan Di. Lan Di steals a mysterious artifact known as the Dragon Mirror. Ryo vows to avenge his father’s death and sets out tracing Lan Di’s path.

The first game in the series, Shenmue begins the tale as Ryo travels around Yokosuka, Japan, gathering clues about his father’s murder and dealing with nefarious gangsters along the way. The sequel Shenmue II continues Ryo’s quest, this time crossing the sea to Hong Kong, China. Ryo ventures deeper into the criminal underworld, meeting martial arts masters who aid him on his journey and offer insight into his father’s death, and unravels the mysteries of the Dragon Mirror that his father kept hidden.

Favourite 2 games of all time. Play them once a year since release at Christmas and have been waiting for the 3rd and a re-release of 1 & 2 for more than half of my life. Spent a large amount backing the Kickstarter for 3, and am finally so amazingly chuffed that they have got around to remastering 1 and 2.

At this price point it is a no-brainer for people who are interested in the Shenmue Legacy, want to get into the series for Shenmue 3, or just simply want to know what all the fuss is about. It even comes with a free poster with the original artwork that is beautiful.

Sega have been on a roll these last couple of years with Yakuza localisations etc, let's just hope they can keep it up!
Can't wait to wait for the bus, drive a forklift and do kung fu in a car park by myself again!
Hey mister, wanna wrestle?
I am looking for shops where sailors might go.

That's a decent price for 2 remakes considering they are several generations old and not just ps3 rehashes!

Have some heat!
Shame this isn't a remaster. But wanted to play this Dreamcast classic for years. Heat.

Genuinely really happy with the price point on this, even the deal earlier was acceptable to me. So yeah... needless to say, i've ordered.
these take money straight away for anyone wondering

Pardon my silliness, just checked it is a remaster with Shenmue 3 coming out as well.

1080p 60fps with new features like bloom lighting. No 4k upscale.

These games are amazing and an absolute steal at that price.

possibly will get a 4k update at some point if it sells well.
Amazing price for a piece of genuine gaming history. Won't be everyone's cup of tea but if you are receptive to what it does well you might love it. I have played these games many times and whilst they both have their qualities the sequel is by far the superior game in my opinion- people speaking about shenmue often refer almost exclusively to the first one so it will be nice to see the second get some attention as well.

Not going to order yet as I can see someone doing it even cheaper (suspect base will undercut this). Heat though of course.

it isn't? it is..what else could it be..you don't want to play the exact same graphics and engine of 20 years ago on todays system..that would be too rough and clunky ..for 3D games anyway..

Yes has been confirmed
Great prices and hopefully enough time to play through again before Shenmue 3.

Just have to get through the first hour of asking people if they remember seeing a black car on the day the snow turned to rain.

Remakes that's why I put remakes.

Edit your original post rather than making a new post. Lol lol.
Started replaying these on my Dreamcast recently, I hadn’t noticed how shockingly bad the voice dubbing for English was as a kid but you’ll have a laugh with it if they haven’t changed it at least
This is perfect timing for me - I never got to play these because I didn't have a Dreamcast, but I've always wanted to and have tried various things, like a Dreamcast emulator on a Raspberry Pi, but nothing felt quite right. Just last week I was scouring eBay for a good deal on a second hand Dreamcast, wondering if I could justify buying one for just two games, and thinking 'Why aren't they re-releasing the first two games before the third game is released? Seems like a no-brainer to me, but it also seems like something that would have been announced already if it was going to happen,' and then this got announced, as if they're read my mind!

By all accounts the games have aged terribly - be prepared for clunky controls and truly awful voice acting - visually they looked way ahead of their time so they're going to look great in HD even if minimal remastering is done, and it will just be nice to have access to them on modern systems, particularly before the third game comes out.

365 take cash at time of order btw, or they do if you use paypal.
Will be getting this, but this is not a remaster, this is a straight up port.

No chance of 60fps as that will require a remake as it uses an internal clock which is based on it running 30fps.

Still great value.

it is a remaster its running at a higher res is in widescreen and will probably have newer textures, it doesent need to be in 60fps to be considered a remaster
Wow had no idea this was lined up wonder if shenmue 3 is due out around same time.

Unofficially so did the Dreamcast versions.

You are giving Sega too much credit - the fact an almost 20 year old game can't run at 60fps should scream cash grab.

Best deal so far! Looking forward to finally playing both games on a modern system! Also hoping this will gather more interest in the Kickstarter for Shenmue III - It's Happening!

I cannot wait for these for nostalgia purposes. Anyone who picks them up to play for the very first time is going to think they are terrible though!
Whatever happened to Shenmue 3?
SOOOOO excited!!!
