What the "modern" control scheme will be, no one can yet say.

Sega has just announced that they will be bringing over both Shenmue I & II to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The title is set in a real-time open world that that includes proper day-and-night cycles and weather changes. Ryo ventures deeper into the criminal underworld, meeting martial arts masters who aid him on his journey and offer insight into his father's death, and unravels the mysteries of the Dragon Mirror that his father kept hidden.

We're told that the re-releases will stay true to the original and will come with the original feature set including jujitsu combat, investigative elements, RPG elements, and mini games.

We'll update our readers when we have more information.
