Sega: We Would Love To Release Shenmue 1 And 2 HD ‘Tomorrow’

With Shenmue 3 funded via Kickstarter and in development right now, fans have been wondering about revisiting the older titles. Unfortunately, Sega (which is not directly involved in the Shenmue 3 project) doesn’t have anything definite to share right now.

The good news is that the company says it wants to release HD versions of the first two games in the series. However, there are some complications.

“With regards to Shenmue 1 and 2 HD, we would love to release these tomorrow,” says Sega Europe community manager Dan Sheridan. “Sadly, it’s not as simple as porting the games to the current platforms, as we would need to ensure that the quality of any HD remaster lives up to the quality of the original titles. With games as immersive as Shenmue 1 and 2, 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.”

So, no promises, but Sega clearly hears your cries, Shenmue fans. Not sure what all the fuss is about? We played all of Shenmue just for you. Check it out.

Our Take
Whether listening turns into doing is in part up to fans. Tackling the HD remakes needs to make financial sense, especially given the licensing complications.

A New Dawn Of War Has Been Announced, Details Tomorrow

A new Dawn of War is coming, though details begin and end right there for now. A full reveal is planned for tomorrow, at which time we’ll find out more about what Sega (and presumably Relic) have in store.

Dawn of War, a Warhammer 40K real-time strategy series, has had two distinctly different incarnations. The first game was a traditional base-building RTS, that eventually gave birth to three substantial expansions.

The sequel dropped the base-building in favor of a smaller, squad based approach (akin to the Company of Heroes series). It spawned two sizable expansions and the Last Stand standalone pack that serves as a co-op horde mode. New DLC for the Retribution expansion was just released in March, which now seems to have been designed to whet appetites for this announcement. The Dawn of War franchise was acquired from THQ (along with Relic) in bankruptcy proceedings. 

While there is no mention of Warhammer 40K or Games Workshop yet, the series has been exclusively associated with that franchise. We’ll have more tomorrow at 7 a.m. Pacific / 10 a.m. Eastern when the game is unveiled.

Our Take
Both Dawn of War games hold up extremely well. I just finished playing the first one, and I’ve started in on the second in earnest. If you have the slightest interest in Warhammer 40K, there are a lot of great games to sink your teeth into, but these are a great starting point.

Star Wars: Rogue One Trailer Coming Tomorrow, See The Teaser Now

Star Wars fans speculated that Lucasfilm would likely release the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One on Star Wars Day (May 4). In a move no one could have seen coming, the first trailer for the film is debuting tomorrow on ABC's Good Morning America television show.

The announcement came with a brief 11-second teaser video that shows off a new version of the stormtrooper that is likely the shadow trooper that Lucasfilm recently trademarked. Star Wars: Rogue One is not a continuation of Finn and Rey's story from last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and is instead a prequel story that gives us insight into how the Rebel Alliance came into possession of the Death Star plans. Rogue One is slated to open in theaters on December 16. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards.

The Nintendo 64′s Yoshi’s Story Arrives On Wii U Virtual Console Tomorrow

Yoshi's story is the tenth Nintendo 64 game to make its way to the Wii U's Virtual Console.

Released three years after the Super Nintendo's Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Story was the game that truly separated Yoshi's Island from the Super Mario series of games. The game, which will be available tomorrow, will be the standard $ 9.99 Wii U Virtual Console N64 game price.

We gave the game an 8.5 when it released in 1998.

Our Take
I was never a fan of this sequel, and I am surprised to see it on the Wii U Virtual Console before games like Star Fox 64, Majora's Mask, or Mario Kart.
