While we’re very patiently waiting for Shenmue III, the Shenmue I & II re-release for the PS4, Xbox One and PC is seemingly coming along pretty well and finally has a solid release date: August 21st, 2018.
The Dreamcast classic isn’t quite getting the remaster or remake treatment and still looks decidedly Dreamcast-y, but for under $30 for both groundbreaking, beloved Sega titles bundled together, we’re okay with that. Those who are planning to pre-order from digital storefronts there’s currently a 10% discount.
Oh and we have a new pre-order trailer and a set of screens/box art too
