It’s the rumour that won’t stop running: the two Shenmue titles could be coming to the PlayStation 4 this year. Just like the Bayonetta and Vanquish double-pack we reported on earlier, a bunch of Eastern European retailers all seem to think that Yu Suzuki’s legendary Dreamcast adventures are coming to Sony’s current console this year, too.
While there is some disparity between the listings – and they're certainly not the first of their kind we’ve seen – it is interesting how a lot of online stores in the same general geographic area have put up similar product pages all at the same time. Have they gotten hold of genuine information, or is this all just coincidental guesswork based on popular rumours?
Personally, we wouldn’t be surprised if this is legit. There’s easy money to be made on some Shenmue remasters, and SEGA seems to be turning a corner with fan-focused projects like Sonic Mania. It’ll be interesting to see how newcomers respond to the original Shenmue titles, as they’re certainly showing their age these days – even if they are still beloved by many.
