Shenmue HD boost – Dreamcast classic getting remastered for PS4 and Xbox One? – Express.co.uk
Shenmue 1 and 2 could be getting the HD Remastered treatment with revamped versions of the Dreamcast classics heading to PS4 and Xbox One.
Listings for the ‘Shenmue 1 & 2 pack’ have emerged on a number of websites of retailers based in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, according to DualShockers.
There is no extra information, release date, or box art available for the alleged Shenmue 1 & 2 pack for PS4 and Xbox One.
However, the proximity of these retailers may suggest that a local distributor may have sent out some information too early.
Only one of the retailers gives a vague idea of when the title is coming out, with a 2017 release window.
The news should be taken with a pinch of salt until an official announcement comes out from Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki.
However, with Shenmue 3 on the horizon, an HD remaster of the first two games would make sense.
It would give those who missed the series first time round a chance to experience it in HD, and also be a nice treat for long-term fans.
The Tokyo Game Show is just around the corner, and that could be one possible place where the Shenmue HD remaster collection is announced.
The news comes just after the Sega Dreamcast celebrated 18 years since it was first released in North America.
