Sega released the third and final part of their set of videos about Shenmue I and II Collection. This final part focuses on the game’s combat mechanics and mini games, narrated by the English-version voice actor of Ryo Hazuki, Corey Marshall.
Originally released for the Dreamcast in 2000 and 2001, Shenmue I & II is an open world action adventure combining jujitsu combat, investigative sleuthing, RPG elements, and memorable mini-games. It pioneered many aspects of modern gaming, including open world city exploration, and was the game that coined the Quick Time Event (QTE). It was one of the first games with a persistent open world, where day cycles to night, weather changes, shops open and close and NPCs go about their business all on their own schedules.
The remaster features an updated user interface, choice of modern or classic controls, Japanese audio available for the first time for a global audience and fully scalable screen resolutions.
Shenmue I & II are coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on August 21st.
