Shenmue HD is really happening this year!

Talk about all gaming unrelated to the Dreamcast. This includes emulation of other consoles as well.

Do you think it will run on the Dreamcast?

Really shows how little they give a shit about Shenmue. Just a lazy cash-in off the back of Shenmue 3 coming out.

Look at what SEGA did with Yakuza (and Yakuza 2). They remade the entire thing and it's such an improvement.



I was really hoping for something similar. But...nope.

yakuza is much more profitable in the society where sex and violence will always sell and cause ripples in the ocean, or there might just a whole lot more violence in the world around us.

Shenmue III, is the reason I purchased a PS4 in 2015. But the Shenmue and Shenmue II HD Remaster, brings the PS4 full circle as the Xbox One won't be getting Shenmue III (although it will be released on Windows). I've had Shenmue III pre-ordered from January 10th, 2016 (there was an extension on the Kickstarter) and Shenmue HD, from April 30th. Though YuSuzuki isn't delivering this year, which SEGA are (in a trolling manner).

So SEGA are basically giving YuSuzuki the middle finger, because they will have a Shenmue title in 2018 (although the "very last day of 2018" according to the U.S. Amazon) as compared to YuSuzuki who gave an original date of December 2017 for Shenmue III, then moved it up to 2018 and now 2019. Which actually makes Shenmue HD a great call on SEGA's side, if you consider the fact that you wouldn't want all three games dropping on your doormat at the same time. At least with Shenmue HD, it gives those of us who have since retired our Dreamcast's a second chance to play the first game and a third chance to play the second game while waiting (a year or six) for the next instalment. Plus Shenmue HD is cheap, it's £29.99 in the UK and $29.99 in the U.S. (Amazon prices), where you cannot find the Dreamcast versions at that price (together). 8-)

I preordered this on Steam, if just for the new controls. I really loved Shenmue and Shenmue II, but the tank controls were awful.
