Fan favorites from the Sega Dreamcast era, Shenmue 1 and Shenmue 2 have just been announced to be headed to modern platforms and PC.

YouTuber Adam Koralik released a video today with additional information about the upcoming Shenmue I & Shenmue II HD collection coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC later this year following a chance to check out the titles with SEGA in Japan.

It has been a few years since Shenmue 3 was first funded on Kickstarter, and while news has been slim, we did hear back in January that we should expect a release later this year. Their release was announced yesterday, and according to the commentary, Sega, the new edition of Shenmue 1 and 2 are not simple reprints, and improved.
