The combination pack brings together improved versions of the 1999 action-adventure game 'Shenmue' and its 2001 sequel, and will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 21.

Sega - who released the original games for its Dreamcast console - confirmed the news on Wednesday (04.07.18), in an announcement which also revealed the price of the collection will be a fairly respectable £25, or $30.

The games were first announced during Sega Fest fan event earlier this year, and come with a handful of improvements, although they aren't true HD remakes or remasters.

Amongst the new features, players can enjoy modern and classic control schemes, an updated user interface, scalable screen resolution, and both English and Japanese voiceovers.

'Shenmue' was created by famed game designer Yu Suzuki, and at the time of its release in 1999, it had the distinction of being the most expensive video game ever created.

Its sequel was released for the Dreamcast in Europe and Japan in 2001, but was ported to the original Xbox the following year.

Both games put players in the role of Ryo Hazuki, a young martial artist on a quest to avenge his father's death and ultimately uncover the secret behind a mysterious relic known as the Dragon Mirror.

The titles were renowned for their impressive open world, deep battle system, and variety of minigames.

Meanwhile, a third instalment in the series, 'Shenmue III', was announced during Sony's E3 press conference back in 2015, and is currently in development for PS4 and PC.
