What is Shenmue? Sega Breaks Down the Basics in a New Video

Shenmue I & II bring the first two chapters back on August 21

 

The first two chapters of Ryo Hazuki's grand adventure are coming back to consoles and PC this month, but what about the poor souls out there who have no idea what Shenmue even is? Like, what's the deal with all the sailors and stray cats and why is Shenmue III so hotly anticipated? 

 

To break it down for the beginners (and serve up a refresher for old folks like myself), Sega shared a new "What is Shenmue?" video, which has Ryo voice actor Corey Marshall digging into the story. 

 

 

Shenmue I &II hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 21.
