Currently the only way to play Shenmue 1 and 2 are on Dreamcast and the original Xbox.
Shenmue 2 was released in North America in 2002. Since E3 2015, plenty of gamers have become intrigued by the series, but playing the original games has been difficult because of limited availability. The HD Remaster would greatly serve the upcoming Shenmue 3 by helping gamers catch up on the story.
An online report suggests that Sega is planning to release the Shenmue HD remaster in 2017.
Sega has registered a domain under the name of ShenmueHD.com.
