Here are the details from the product page:

A tale of revenge.

In 1986, teenage jujitsu artist Ryo Hazuki returns to the dojo of his father, Iwao Hazuki, only to witness his murder by a Chinese man, Lan Di. Lan Di steals a mysterious artifact known as the Dragon Mirror. Ryo vows to avenge his father’s death and sets out tracing Lan Di’s path.


The best Shenmue experience:

  • Updated user interface
  • Choice of modern or classic controls
  • Japanese audio available for the first time for a global audience
  • Fully scalable screen resolutions


The world feels alive:

  • Talk to anyone, scour the world for clues
  • NPCs live independent lives on their own schedule
  • Faithful recreations of 1980s Japan and Hong Kong, China
  • Distract yourself with arcade games, collectibles, duck racing, and more


We’ll take it with a grain of salt for now until we get an official announcement from Sega.


Shenmue I & II are headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.
