It seems that in the next few days in SEGA, in its role as a distributor, they will be somewhat occupied because the rumor of the possible package that includes Bayonetta and Vanquish for PS4 and Xbox One has added another one: the possible arrival of a package that includes Shenmue and Shenmue II for PS4 and Xbox One.
As happened with the Bayonetta and Vanquish package that could arrive on PS4 and Xbox One, a group of stores in Eastern Europe listed among their products a new package that contains the first 2 installments of Shenmue and that would arrive on PS4 and Xbox One.
In this case, the Alza store in the Czech Republic and the Heureka, GetGame, and MadGamer stores in Slovakia will offer on their online sites the package of Shenmue and Shenmue II that will be delivered on a disk for PS4 and Xbox One.
However, unlike the package with the 2 titles of Platinum Games, there is no more information even in the section of the covers; there are only price estimates where GetGame posted $60 USD and MadGamer $72 USD. In addition, only GetGame published a date generically and placed 2017 as the launch window.
So far SEGA has revealed nothing about the possible arrival of Shenmue and Shenmue II on PS4 and Xbox One, but it seems that this rumor could have a solid basis because there are opinions that attribute the leak to some error or situation in distribution issues that it would have resulted in publications from the region’s stores ahead of time.
It should be remembered that Shenmue III is in development and could be expected to create some expectation by taking advantage of its next launch, although the creation of the new title is in the hands of Ys Net of Yu Suzuki and its publication is in charge of Deep Silver.
Shenmue debuted on SEGA Dreamcast in 1999 for Japan and 2000 for the United States, while Shenmue II came out in 2001 as one of the last SEGA console titles and was released in Japan and Europe; the North American version came in 2002 for Xbox.
