Shenmue 1 And 2 Pre-Order And Release Date Guide For The US: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Get your forklifts ready.
A collection of Shenmue I & II is heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 21. This collection contains the original Shenmue, which launched on the Dreamcast in 1999, as well as the 2001 sequel, which came out on both Dreamcast and the original Xbox. The suggested retail price for the collection is $30.
While these aren't true HD remakes or remasters of the games, they do come with some advantages over the originals beyond being playable on modern hardware. You'll be able to choose between classic or modern controls, they have scalable screen resolution, and for the first time in the US, you can play with Japanese audio.
If you want to re-play these games--or see why so many fans contributed over $6 million to Shenmue III's Kickstarter--you might be looking to pre-order the collection. Here's everything you need to know to pre-order Shenmue I & II.
No Pre-Order Bonus
Sorry, no pre-order bonuses here. All you'll get for pre-ordering Shenmue I & II is a copy of the game when it comes out on August 21. But physical copies do come with a double-sided poster, so that's something.
