In preparation for Shenmue I & II‘s HD re-release, Sega invited Youtuber Adam Koralik and comedian Imran Yusuf to explore some of the real-life locations found in the series.
In this video, the two explore Dobuita Street, one of Shenmue‘s most iconic locations:
Sega describes the experience:
From convenience stores to vending machines, the open-world of Shenmue still bears resemblance to the bustling and lively real world locations, and its very faithful representation of Dobuita Street immersed over a million players in Ryo’s quest to avenge his father. To this day, dozens of Shenmue fans like Adam and Imran visit Dobuita Street every year to retrace Ryo Hazuki’s footsteps, recalling their love for Shenmue and how they felt playing the games for the very first time.
Shenmue I & II release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 21st. The highly anticipated sequel, Shenmue III, releases on PlayStation 4 and PC in 2019.
