    With Shenmue 3 hitting later this year, fans have been wondering if they'd see a remaster of the Shenmue series on modern platforms. And SEGA has delivered, revealing Shenmue 1 & 2 re-release for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 later this year, worldwide. Japan's release will only consist of a PS4 version. Shemue originally released for the Dreamcast nearly 20 years ago, and is notoriously prone to emulation issues, so this new version will finally please many fans of the franchise.

    Same. I can't even get DEmul to work properly at full speed with Crazy Taxi on my laptop; the game goes from being a crazy taxi rush to drunk bastards on acid in cars.

    The world feels alive
    Talk to anyone, scour the world for clues
    NPCs live independent lives on their own schedule
    Faithful recreations of 1980s Japan and Hong Kong, China
    Distract yourself with arcade games, collectibles, duck racing, and more

    Neat. I loved Shenmue 1, but never got a chance to play 2 without emulation.

    Will definitely be picking these up for sure.

    Chary, that is the worst description I ever saw for this game, even though it's fact. That doesn't make me want to play this game if I didn't already know about it.

    Shame on steam for even letting that be up there, Duck racing, even if that is in the game, who would advertise that as a selling point! Sega needs better marketing for their games. :blink:

    Never played neither but heard nothing but high praise for this franchise, definitely picking it up for PS4.
