Though no official confirmation has been made by SEGA, the release date for Shenmue I & II appears to now be set in stone. According to the bundle's listing on the PlayStation Store, the PS4 ports of these influential Dreamcast adventure games is 20th August in North America and 21st August in Europe.

The page also reaffirms the price of the package -- it'll cost £24.99 in the UK, but PlayStation Plus members will be able to purchase the collection for £22.49. The US PlayStation Store listing doesn't appear to be up yet, but we already know the price in the States.

Our esteemed editor Sammy Barker is a huge fan of the Shenmue series, and recommends that you play the games when they hit PS4, but also warns that they're very much a product of their time.
