The announcement is made at 1:54 in the video.

Fans have been requesting this for years, and now it looks as if it might actually happen in the near future.

I don't think it was announced. Or a kickstarter perk. I'm curious to see whether Shenmue would be enjoyable beyond a historical context.

@shindig: outside of nostalgia or historical context I don't think either game holds up. Some may get into the story though.

They said they dont have the rights to do anything with the first 2 games. I think what they said was they would make a digest video of the story from the first 2 games.

People keep saying this and yet I still keep playing the first 2 games at least once a year.

Certain things like the faces of characters and the voice acting are very dated but the game had a world that felt much more lived in (kind of like majora's mask) than most games do now.

Hate to be that guy but if they do remake the first two games I hope they have a japanese vo option.

That's all heartening to hear, then. I've always seen Yakuza as a modern successor, though so I've got that mental yardstick to compare it to. I often wonder if playing a game in the moment conditions you to deal with them easier over the years.
