During a Q&A session on Twitch, Yu Suzuki confirmed that he would be speaking with SEGA about the possibility of remastering Shenmue and Shenmue 2 to release Shenmue HD.
While Suzuki is keen to bring Shenmue HD versions to market, he was keen to reiterate that SEGA owns the rights to Shenmue so a HD release would require their approval.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently underway for the development of Shenmue 3 and is currently over $3.7 million of a $2 million target. Suzuki has confirmed that to make the real vision of his game, he would require $10 million from Kickstarter.
A physical copy of Shenmue 3 is also being investigated, as Sony is involved with Shenmue 3 it is likely that a disc based version of the game will be possible but isn’t confirmed at this time.
The Q&A is available on the Official Shenmue 3 Twitch channel
