High-definition remasters of Shenmue and Shenmue II will launch in 2017, according to “a trusted source close to Atlus USA” of blog and online retailer Rice Digital.
The website reports that both games may be released together rather than separately, and are likely being geared up to launch before Shenmue III. While it doesn’t have any further information, the website said it was told it is “safe to assume a PC / Steam release,” and that there has not been any indication that the remasters will appear on any other platform.
The author of the article previously leaked information that Atlus would publish The King of Fighters XIV a few days before its official announcement.
Prior to that, in May 2017, Sega said it was “investigating” working on remasters of Shenmue and Shenmue II.
The long-anticipated sequel, Shenmue III, is in development at Ys Net and currently slated for release for PlayStation 4 and PC in December.
