Ever since Shenmue 3 was announced and hit its Kickstarter goal it’s been damn near silence. We’ve got some new screenshots here & there, but that’s about it. They swear it’ll drop in 2018, but I won’t hold my breath. Especially after this recent announcement. Late this Friday night SEGA revealed that Shenmue one & two are coming to current-gen platforms.
That includes PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The only thing disappointing about this announcement is this doesn’t look to be a remaster. Judging by the trailer it looks like the gameplays resolution has been bumped up to 1080p, but the textures remain the original SEGA Dreamcast textures. I also have a sneaky suspicion this announcement was made because a Shenmue 3 delay is coming soon.
Just my gut. I’m probably wrong. We’ll see.
