As we know both Shenmue I & Shenmue II are getting a much anticipated re-release on August 21, 2018. In honor of the release SEGA surprised two Shenmue fans with a trip to Yokosuka in Japan, and allowed them to experience one of the game’s iconic locations in real life. YouTuber Adam Koralik and comedian Imran Yusuf talk more about their impressions of and their own interpretation of Shenmue. Let’s hope that even more fans will be pleased with the Shenmue 1 and 2 Rerelease.

Word is that “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.”

So, for the first time ever, a new generation of players is going to experience this incredible journey, as they follow Ryo’s story of retribution. The game is going to hit PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
