The latest Sega Central video revealed that Sega is “investigating” the idea of making an HD remaksering of both Shenmue and Shenmue II.
When asked about whether it could happen by a fan, Sega Community Manager Dan Sheridan stated..
“With regards to Shenmue I and II HD, of course we would love to release these tomorrow. Sadly, it’s not as simple as porting the games to current platforms as we will need to ensure that any HD remaster lives up to the quality of the original titles. And with games as immersive as Shenmue I and II, there are further complications from licensed products that were included in the original games. That said, we’d love to do it and are currently investigating how to make it a reality.”
