Oh. My. Goodness. It is... happening!

Honestly, I don't know why I'm hyped for Shenmue I and II, considering I've never played them, but I am. I am ready to go, because SEGA has made a major announcement tonight.

And, of course, I already spoiled it.

Anyway, the remastered editions of Shenmue I and II are heading to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4! Yahoo!

According to the Steam description of Shenmue I and II:

SEGA's most requested re-release of all time finally comes to a new generation. Shenmue delivers an epic story of revenge within a unique open world that is still unrivaled in depth and detail. Return to the epic saga that defined modern gaming. The saga begins... again.

There's more in the "About This Game" section:

"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'."

Since I've never owned a Dreamcast, I will finally be able to play this. It's going to be so... '80s!

As for the goodies that'll be coming to PC (and the consoles):
  • Updated user interface
  • Choice of modern or classic controls
  • Dual audio (Japanese or English)
  • Fully scalable screen resolutions
Alright, now I'm done squealing. Hopefully, we will see a release date very soon. Considering it will be heading to consoles and PC sometime in 2018.
