Rumor: Shenmue I & II HD coming to PlayStation 4 & Xbox One According to Retailer Leaks

shenmueWe just reported a previous rumor that Vanquish and Bayonetta is getting a double pack release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but it seems that Shenmue I & II HD might be joining the rumor party as it has also been leaked by multiple retailers. The double pack has been leaked by Alza (same one that leaked the Bayonetta and Vanquish ones), Heureka, GetGame, and MadeGamer! Earlier this year, it was rumored that Shenmue I & II HD where suppose to be coming out by the end of the year, according to Rice Digital, then we had the CEO of Just Add Water say that these ports have been in works earlier this year. We had so much information about these ports being possible that we even did a whole video on it.

It would make sense considering that SEGA Europe has stated in the past that Shenmue I & II HD have had their full attention and then right after they registered Shenmue Remaster related domains.  I will say this is highly probable. What is your opinion? Will you pick up Shenmue I & II HD on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One? Are you excited to dip back into the world of Shenmue?

Rumor: Shenmue HD Remasters are real says Just Add Water CEO

shenmueOver on the infamous video game messaging board, NeoGAF the CEO of Just Add Water confirmed  that the Shenmue HD Remasters of the first two titles are real. First you’d ask yourself who the development team ‘Just Add Water’ really is. Well, I did some journalistic google searching and found their wikipedia page:

Just Add Water (Development) Ltd., doing business as Just Add Water, is an independent video game developer based in Otley, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom. Founded by Stewart Gilray in 2006, Just Add Water has worked on different titles for the PlayStation 3 and PC, notably the Oddworld series. They have teamed up with Oddworld Inhabitants, to recreate the series in high definition as well as working on new installments in the series.

The Just Add Water CEO didn’t confirm anything outside of a short ‘Oh, it’s real… :-)’ message, so we made this a rumor considering that he could just be kidding with fellow board members. Though you’d think someone that is a CEO of a company that specifically ports old games wouldn’t be joking about Shenmue HD Remasters being the works. Considering Shenmue news is serious business to fans that have been waiting for SEGA to port the games since forever. Maybe Shenmue HD Remasters will be shown off in some form come E3 next month? What are your thoughts about SEGA possibly doing Shenmue HD Remasters of the first two games? Would you purchase them again? Let us know in the comments below.
