Can't stand the games myself. For a start the original is arguably responsible for QTEs, and we all know what a bane on our gaming lives those damn things can be. And it'll no doubt breathe new life to the fire of a possible Shenmue 3. Get over it, it won't happen (:p). But you may as well part with the cash for these HD updates while you cling to the hope that it will.

Sega is ready to release HD updates of cult Dreamcast classics Shenmue and Shenmue 2, according to a new report.

Shenmue HD and Shenmue 2 HD will be released on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, Gamerzines (http://www.gamerzines.com/xbox/news-xbox/shenmue-xbla-hd-real-finished.html) claimed.

Indeed development of both titles has been finished for over a year, an anonymous source said. The hold up was due to Sega working out the future of the Shenmue franchise, apparently. "Namely, whether or not Shenmue 3 would ever see the light of day," said the report.

If true, Shenmue's HD revamp follows similar efforts with other cult Dreamcast games. Sega recently announced Jet Set Radio HD, due out this summer.

The memory card is dead cheap, you can buy it on eBay like I did last year. :3

Better than buying a game you've already owned.

Why have it HD when the original versions of games look the same, in my opinon. Anyway Shenmue 1 and 2 are coming back and i cannot not play them.

How are things in HD actually HD. I've have seen some games remastered for HD TV and they seem the same as they did before.

I played it for a couple of minutes. I had my fill of SA awfulness during the first game, it got no better in the sequel.

Well it wasn't me who was playing it in full HD, it was a family member who was actually playing it.

I've never really played Shenmue (i've only briefly played the first one at a friend) but i've heard so much praise for the games that i'd be curious to finally try them.

Judging from your taste in games, I'd definitely say you'd enjoy them. :tmb:

As soon as I saw this, I jumped out of my chair! No, really.

Probably one of my favourite games of all time (II, not I even thought it's amazing too.) and the sole reason for my fascination with Chinese culture and my trip to Beijing last year.


Can't fricking wait! :D

Because I've never played them? T_T

I've only read about it and watched some videos, and they were of epic proportions. Dreamcast is dead so it's a rare piece of equipment for me to get my hands on.

And I hope they put Soul Calibur 1 up next though. *desperate fangasm*

Everyone who's proven their worth already has a Dreamcast. Shame you missed out....

Btw, SC1 did port to XBLA, but you don't get no mission battle mode. :ton:

Shenmue is still without doubt my favourite game of all time - along with the Dreamcast my favourite console.

Excited! :jmp:
