Shenmue 1 & 2 HD was recently confirmed for a release date by Sega. The game is basically a compilation of the first two Shenmue games that were released for the Sega Dreamcast and then later ported to the Xbox.

Originally released for the Dreamcast in 2000 and 2001, Shenmue I & II is an open world action adventure combining jujitsu combat, investigative sleuthing, RPG elements, and memorable mini-games. It pioneered many aspects of modern gaming, including open world city exploration, and was the game that coined the Quick Time Event (QTE). It was one of the first games with a persistent open world, where day cycles to night, weather changes, shops open and close and NPCs go about their business all on their own schedules. Its engrossing epic story and living world created a generation of passionate fans, and the game consistently makes the list of “greatest games of all time”.
Shenmue 1 and 2 HD will launch on August 21st for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
