HD remasters of video games are pretty much a given in this day and age, with numerous titles from various companies getting made, and remade, with the HD treatment.
On the Sega Youtube Channel, community manager Dan Sheridan talked about the possibility of a Shenmue 1&2 HD remake.
“With regards to Shenmue 1 and 2 HD, of course we would love to release these tomorrow. Sadly, it’s not as simple as porting the games to the current platforms, as we would need to ensure that any HD remaster lived up to the quality of the original titles.”
When Shenmue 3 coming via a majorly successful Kickstarter campaign, it’s possible that these remakes could happen sooner rather than later depending on support from the fanbase.
