SEGA Looking Into Re-Releasing Shenmue 1&2

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

shenmue

Sega’s European marketing director Jon Rooke has confirmed that SEGA are, “exploring ways to re-release the original two Shenmue titles.”

This is by no means a confirmation that the re-releases are going to happen, but this public confirmation that the company are at least making an attempt to bring the games out of retirement is certainly a positive one.

Fingers crossed a new generation of gaming fans get to play the original two Shenmue titles before the third game drops on the projected release date of December 2017.

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

SEGA have uploaded the following teaser video which clearly hints at the heavily rumoured Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse re-release:

The trailer mentions a Summer 2013 release date but more interesting is that it uses all new assets like the previously leaked “box art”. Could this be a HD remake and not a simple re-release of the Mega Drive original?

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Remember when the Brazilian ratings board outed the existence of a Castle of Illusion re-release? Well the game still hasn’t been officially announced but now we have the XBLA box art courtesy of Lifelower on Twitter.

Interestingly, the box art is completely new artwork which may suggest this is more than a simple re-release of the Mega Drive original. Could a true HD remaster be in the works?

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Capcom action title Strider (which saw previous release on the Mega Drive as well as an unofficial sequel which was released on Mega Drive, Game Gear and Master System) is receiving a new entry.

The new title will launch on Xbox Live Arcade as revealed by artwork discovered by NeoGAF users that matches the dimensions of the box art and banners used on existing XBLA games.

Also uncovered was a Steam achievement which could also mean the game is planned for a PC release.

The game has not been officially announced so a PSN release can’t be ruled out yet. No other details have been discovered at this time. More on this as we get it.
