Following SEGA’s Shenmue HD teaser for XBLA earlier in the week, a Gamerzines insider has it that not only is Shenmue and Shenmue II coming to XBLA and PSN, but SEGA have actually been sitting on the finished HD ports for over a year now and haven’t actually done anything with them.
“Shenmue HD is real [and has been] finished for well over a year. As is Shenmue II HD”, the source told GZ.
Apparently the delay in getting them onto the digital marketplace stems from SEGA’s inability to actually decide what to do with the franchise moving forward. Shenmue III anyone?
Of course, this isn’t full confirmation that the original Shenmue games are actually coming to PSN and XBLA, but it’s looking more and more likely.
