Rumor: Shenmue 1 and 2 HD finished, hitting XBLA/PSN

All right, before we go any further than that headline up there, we want everyone playing along at home to go to the kitchen and bring back one of those big cardboard cylinders of Morton’s salt with the little metal flap on top.

Got it? Okay great, because you’re going to need more than a grain for this one: HD versions of Shenmue 1 and 2 have been completed for more than a year and are pending release on XBLA and PSN, according to an anonymous source reporting to Gamerzines. The source goes on to say that Sega has been sitting on the remakes while it decides the fate of a potential Shenmue 3, though the source did not specify what that fate is.

Look, we’re not saying that it isn’t true, or that we don’t want HD remakes of two of our favorite games ever, because of course we do. We just want you to be careful and not get your precious little hopes up, only to have them dashed to pieces — your broken, mangled hearts never able to trust or love again.

Well since the creator of Shenmue is not with sega no longer and has tried to get the third installment going but Sega will not invest in it. maybe if these HD updates make some headway with new gamers and give Sega the new outlook to invest in Shenmue three
