A Sega representative has confirmed that the recently announced Shenmue I & II re-releases will retail for $29.99 in the US. In the meantime though, Sega will be re-releasing Shenmue 1 and 2 on PC and current generation consoles.
Yu Suzuki's two third-person action-RPGs were hailed as ground-breaking when they originally came out (in 1999 and 2001); the original Shenmue was famously the most expensively produced game at the time, with a budget of up to $70 million. Ryo ventures deeper into the criminal underworld, meeting martial arts masters who aid him on his journey and offer insight into his father's death, and unravels the mysteries of the Dragon Mirror that his father kept hidden.
Sega claims its "original feature set" in terms of "jujitsu combat, investigative sleuthing, and RPG elements" will make a comeback in addition to "real-time open worlds that feel truly alive thanks to day-to- night cycles and weather changes, with a population of civilians who follow their own schedules". Sega is describing the re-release as the "definitive version" and promises the "best Shenmue experience to date".
This re-release is expected to stay true to the original games while affording the modern conveniences of scaleable resolution, a choice of modern or classic control schemes, and an updated user interface.
