Sega explains why Shenmue 1 and 2 run at 30Hz on PC

Sega explains why Shenmue 1 and 2 run at 30Hz on PC”

Highly anticipated: Even if you are patiently waiting for Shenmue III to arrive, you'll probably be happy to know that the first two games in the series will be out before the end of summer.

Shenmue was originally released on the Dreamcast back in 1999, and coined its own sub-genre; FREE, which stands for Full Reactive Eyes Entertainment. They haven't done much in terms of remastering the game but you will have the option to use Japanese or English audio, the choice to use classic or modern control options, scalable screen resolution, and an updated interface.

Microsoft's Windows Store may have leaked the release date for the remastered collection of Shenmue 1 and 2. Sega has released a new trailer confirming the launch, as well as updated a Steam product listing.

In the announcement, the company goes on to call this release the "definitive version" and the "best Shenmue experience to date".

While these aren't true HD remakes or remasters of the games, they do come with some advantages over the originals beyond being playable on modern hardware.

Likewise, for "technical reasons" Sega has chosen to port Shenmue 2's Xbox iteration-as opposed to its Dreamcast variant.

The Shenmue series has always been a cult classic series since the first title's debut on the Dreamcast in 1999, and now with the upcoming HD remasters of the first two titles, a whole new generation of gamers will get to experience the titles for the first time this August.
