Today at Sega Fes 2018, the publisher announced that a rerelease of Shenmue and Shenmue II should launch in 2018 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The updated version will get physical and digital editions known as "Shenmue I & II".

Updated March 14, 2018: From the newly-released trailer, it seems as though the game has received a resolution upgrade but the textures and other mechanics remain the same. The collection is expected to cost $29.99.

Players take a thrilling voyage across faithful recreations of Hong Kong and Japan in a tale of revenge and mystery. Both of the titles are regarded as cult classics, and Shenmue II is one of the most requested games for Xbox One backward compatibility even to this day.

Keep in mind that Shenmue I & II isn't a complete remaster. The visuals will mostly be the same. The game features scalable resolution, choice of modern or classic controls, PC graphics options, an updated user interface, and the option to select original Japanese or English voiceovers.

Shenmue I & II comes with original features like the captivating jujitsu combat, investigative gameplay, role-playing elements, and odd mini-games. The title is set in a real-time open world that that includes proper day-and-night cycles and weather changes.

According to Sega, the Shenmue franchise has established a passionate following and is revered as one of gaming's greatest series of all time. These revolutionary masterpieces deliver a gripping story of retribution as Ryo Hazuki sets out to avenge his father's death and attempts to unravel the secrets behind a mysterious artifact known as the "Dragon Mirror".

It'll be interesting to play these games again on modern machines to see if they hold up after all these years. What was considered revolutionary years ago might not be good enough today. Luckily, Shenmue III is expected to launch on PC in 2018 so the franchise may get another chance if the rerelease doesn't live up to expectations.
