Rumor: Shenmue I & II HD Remasters coming by the end of 2017

RoundTableShenmue2“But that’s none of my business”

According to Rice Digital, an online gaming shop who has had close sources in Atlus and leaked announcements in the past has said that Shenmue I & II HD Remasters are in the works. The source also tells Rice Digital that the games could be released together and should be out before the end of the year. The same person leaking this information over at Rice Digital also leaked that Atlus was publishing King of Fighters XIV, which turned out to be true.

Here is the weird part of the rumor, Shenmue I & II HD Remasters are said to be set for PC/Steam release but doesn’t indicate other consoles such as PlayStation 4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch. While I personally game on PC and would be more inclined to play it on PC, it also needs to be on at least the PlayStation 4. Of course the rumor doesn’t rule out that it could be coming to consoles, only that they know there is a PC/Steam release. Shenmue I & II HD Remasters are looking more and more like a solid thing. Remember a few months back we talked about the leaked domains, last year in September SEGA teased saying the Shenmue I & II HD remasters had their full attention and now this rumor starts popping up. What is your thoughts on this rumor and what would like to see changed or updated for the Shenmue I & II HD Remasters? Let us know in the comments below.

    Ah yeah. I remember that domain where they mispelled Shenmue :

    Oh yeah this is definitely coming. The domain registrations are the real smoking gun. It’s really a matter of when, not if.

    Hope sega will actually remake it instead of just throwing at us a HD version

    Sad if it does happen in another way too though, as Shenmue is like the last big main Dreamcast exclusive to no longer be Dreamcast exclusive after 17 years, and one less reason to get the Dreamcast out. Shenmue was made from inception specifically to sell the Dreamcast, so there’s some doubt as to whether Shenmue III will deliver in the same way the first two did, because it no longer has that main ambition to keep it right.
