Shenmue I & II Priced At $29.99, Featuring Achievements

SEGA has announced the re-release of its beloved classics Shenmue I & II to new generation systems and gamers.

Shenmue was released for the Dreamcast back in 1999, and was originally conceived as an RPG set in the Virtua Fighter universe. The games will also offer what is being referred to as modern and classic control schemes, but it's not entirely clear what the difference between the two will be.

On top of this, there'll be an element of novelty in the likes of the achievements included on all the platforms (PC via Steam, PS4's Trophies, and Xbox One), and there will be the opportunity to choose among Japanese and English dubs.

An Air China flight headed for Beijing made an unplanned landing in the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou on Sunday. The Xiaoxiang Morning Herald quoted a passenger as saying that the problem was in first or business class.

The games will be released in both physical and digital formats, and they'll feature improved textures, which should come as a relief to anyone who remembers the original Dreamcast versions. Shenmue didn't lay the map for open world adventuring, but it did present a world with far more detail and nuance than the wave of games that followed GTA3 could even dream of. While the title suffers from plenty of wonkiness and featured many ideas that the technology of the time simply couldn't handle, it's still one of those games that everyone must at least try to play at some point.

KitGuru Says: Shenmue is a fairly niche game, but its presence at Sony's E3 conference in 2015 got a lot of people interested in the series for the first time. The game's lows were quite low, but its highs include some incredible sequences and unbelievable plot twists that help make it one of the greatest revenge stories of all-time.
