SEGA Central reveals SEGA 3D Classics Collection coming to Europe, gives update on Shenmue 1&2 HD

In the latest episode of the Europe-focused SEGA Central video series, SEGA Europe community manager Dan Sheridan answers some viewer mail. To the request for more Japanese games receiving American localization to release in Europe, Dan confirms that one game is indeed coming. Dan’s exact words were: “We have also heard that fans are looking forward to the release of SEGA 3D Classics Collection in Europe, and subject to approval submissions, we’ll have news to share soon. One thing that I can tell you, is that it is coming.”

On the topic of Shenmue and Shenmue 2 receiving HD releases (or “hay-ch dee” as they say), Dan replied: “Of course we would love to release these tomorrow. Of course it’s not as simple as just porting the games to the current platforms, as we would need to ensure that any HD remaster lives up to the quality of the original titles, and with games as immersive as Shenmue 1 and 2 there are further complications from licensed products that were included in the original games. That said, we’d love to do it, and are currently investigating how to make it a reality.”

    Good news! I was also wandering about the size of that art book. It was kind of hard to see in some of those images.

    Brands? Holding up Shenmue 1 and 2 HD because of BRANDS? Jet Cola replacing Coke was fine, anything else will be fine. Just give it.

    If they get the licence then Jet Set Radio Future will be as well, if the people know shenmue II is on XBOX and they need to licenced the game or remove them to release the game. It’s simple remove smilebit logo, microsoft and inforgames and we are going to have the HD ports we want it!
