Today, the re-release of both Shenmue I & II is out now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It is digital only for PC, while PS4 and Xbox One has the option of in-stores and digital. This version of both games is meant to be definitive, with modern features like an updated user interface and controls, option for Japanese or English voiceovers, and on the PC scalable screen resolution and graphics options.
The game itself is timeless for its diversion from typical adventure games, boasting importance about patience. Unlike other games, it is more about taking ones time in the world, not rushing things just to simply get anything done, such as how to train, events based on the specific time of the game, and more.
It is recommended to check the press release for a link to SEGA approved digital retailers if PC players would like other options outside of Steam.
