Shenmue 1 HD Won't Feature Sequel's Time Skipping Features

Get ready to go on a thrilling voyage across faithful recreations of Japan and Hong Kong, China, in a timeless tale of revenge and mystery when Shenmue I & II launches both physically and digitally on Playstation 4 and XBOX One with a PC release on Steam in 2018.

Shenmue I & II are available for pre-order from the first-party retailer with pre-orders opening on Steam and other U.S. and EMEA retailers soon.

"You've asked, we listened and we're extremely excited to finally announce that Shenmue I & II are coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in one package!" says Sega via a tweet over the weekend. Sega is describing the re-release as the "definitive version" and promises the "best Shenmue experience to date".




"We've tried to stay as close to the original feature sets in each game as possible, so Shenmue 1 will not have the time skip feature", a Sega spokesperson told the VG247 website. The official announcement trailer is not enough to base on, either, since Sega noted at the start that "This trailer uses pre-release footage, and represents a work in progress". The re-releases will come with scalable resolutions, classic and revamped control schemes, an updated interface, graphics options on PC and the ability to switch between the Japanese and English voiceovers.

Shenmue is a tale of retribution as Ryo Hazuki seeks out to avenge his father's death and attempts to unravel the secrets behind a mysterious artifact known as the Dragon Mirror.
