SEGA has announced that Shenmue I & II will be releasing this August, seeing Ryo Hazuki return for his first two original SEGA Dreamcast adventures on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

If you want to re-play these games-or see why so many fans contributed over $6 million to Shenmue III's ickstarter-you might be looking to pre-order the collection. I'm told they're incredible. While the highly anticipated and long in development Shenmue 3 was confirmed to be delayed into 2019 earlier this year, it seems the release date for the remastered versions of both Shenmue games has been accidentally revealed.

Check out the Shenmue FAQ as it appears on the Sega website, and know that the originals' in-game arcade games are fully playable here.

Shenmue 1 & 2 arrives in 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

While release date listings on online stores can be inaccurate, console platform holders rarely list incorrect dates with this sort of date format. All you'll get for pre-ordering Shenmue I & II is a copy of the game when it comes out on August 21. They haven't done much in terms of remastering the game but you will have the option to use Japanese or English audio, the choice to use classic or modern control options, scalable screen resolution, and an updated interface.
