Prepare yourself for a walk down memory lane with updated ports of Shenmue and Shenmue II bundled together for PS4, XB1, and PC. After getting pushed back twice, fans are getting anxious for the game's release. They haven't done much in terms of remastering the game but you will have the option to use Japanese or English audio, the choice to use classic or modern control options, scalable screen resolution, and an updated interface.

With a post on his official website, Major Nelson confirmed that the two classic games from SEGA will be released on August 20th.

The original Shenmue was first released in 2000 (1999 in Japan) and has only ever been available on Sega's Dreamcast console. The Shenmue I & II physical edition is also available to order, bundling a double-sided poster and a reversible cover that includes the game's original artwork.

When that exposure increased to 11.9 to 13.6 micrograms per cubic meter of air, about 24 percent of the group developed diabetes. A new report warned that outdoor air pollution may be a significant contributor to diabetes cases around the world.

While these aren't true HD remakes or remasters of the games, they do come with some advantages over the originals beyond being playable on modern hardware. Both were very well received.

Technically Sega hasn't announced the date but it appears on the Microsoft store with a price tag of £24.99. The Xbox conversion included a snapshot system with filters, texture mipmaps for improved anti-aliasing, and was slightly better graphically.

SEGA®'s most requested re-release of all time finally comes to a new generation.
