Sega has been sitting on a finished version of Shenmue HD for the past year, a Gamerzines report is claiming.
It also says it has a finished version of Shenmue II HD ready to go.
The reason its held the two games back, both of which released as Dreamcast and Xbox titles respectively, was down to deciding what path the series had in the future, according to the piece.
Or to be more specific, in Gamerzines’ own words, “whether or not Shenmue III would ever see the light of day.”
Sega said it was “excited” to see the “passion” seen by fans for its Dreamcast titles, but didn’t confirm or even mention anything regarding Shenmue.
“The games that were mentioned are definitely among the most requested re-releases. We can’t go into specifics about our future releases, but we are excited to see so much passion surrounding our Dreamcast-era games.”
