Last year we had SEGA tell us that they were investigating the possibility of a Shenmue Remaster. Then, earlier this year we had SEGA register a website for the title.
And now, today ricedigital stoked those fires by posting a new rumour. Citing a source from Atlus claiming that the Shenmue Remasters will be released this year. Here’s what was said in the article;
A trusted source close to Atlus USA, today revealed to me that Shenmue HD Remaster will be released this year. Both games, Episodes 1 & 2, may be released together rather than separately. They are presumably being geared up for launch to precede Shenmue 3, which could possibly slip into 2018.
There is never smoke without flames – but we Shenmue fans have heard more than our share of rumours with no grounding in reality. Hopefully this one is different!
As always, we will keep you updated with any new news!
