Sega Might Actually Re-Release Shenmue In HD (And Skies Of Arcadia!)

After it hit an excitement jackpot with news of a re-released Jet Set Radio, Sega must be frantically digging through its Dreamcast catalogue for more games it can sell to a whole new (or, well, same but older) audience, because it’s now teasing HD re-releases of Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia.

The sailor-catcher and cloud-based RPG were two of the most memorable and cherished titles on Sega’s last ever home console.

Speaking with GameReactor at GDC, Sega’s Associate Brand Manager Ben Harborne said in response to questions over what have been the most-requested re-releases, “I can tell you what’ll be: Shenmue. That, and Skies of Arcadia.”

“They’re a couple of our most requested games. I can’t say ‘yes’ or ‘no’, but we may be working on them.”
