Shenmue 1 & 2 packs leaked in Europe!

While we still await more information on the release of the much anticipated Shenmue 3, it seems we may be getting a re-release of the first two titles… Which just makes sense.

As reported by Dual Shockers:

The package appeared on the site of the Czech retailer Alza (and its English version), and on those of the Slovak retailers HeurekaGetGame and MadGamer. All retailers list both a PS4 and a Xbox One as platforms for the release.
None of the sites provides additional information, but the similarity between their locations seems to indicate that a local distributor may have sent them information too early, or with an erroneous embargo.
Only GetGame has a generic “2017” release window. Heureka and GetGame list €49,99 as the price, while MadGamer lists €59.90, but those are very possibly placeholders.
At the moment Sega has not commented about the possible leak, so we should consider this a rumor until an official announcement is made. This kind of thing should always be considered with a hefty grain of salt, so do keep expectations in check until further notice.
Born from the mind of Yu Suzuki, Shenmue originally released in 1999 on Dreamcast, while Shenmue II launched in 2001 on the same console, and made the jump to the original Xbox in 2002.
Possible remasters have been rumored and teased for a while, and Suzuki-san himself is currently working independently from Sega on the third game of the series, aptly titledShenmue III, following a successful Kickstarter campaign.
