Shenmue I & II is anticipated by a lot of long-time Sega fans, but it has been almost 20 years since the first game released on the Dreamcast. That’s a long time to remember a story for people who want to skip straight to Shenmue II or just rant to remind themselves of the game story to get hyped up.
Thankfully, Sega has released a retrospective for Shenmue, with the first episode focusing on the story. As a bonus, the video is narrated by Corey Marshall, the voice actor for Ryo Hazuki.
It’s a good recollection of all the dive bars and sailors and fighting weird gremlin people in arcades and getting screwed out of a ticket to China by a shady travel agent firm.
Shenmue I & II releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 21.
