Did a search and nothing came up. But watch this video JSR Interview and the guy hinted what DC games might be released after JSR. He specifically mentioned Skies and Shenmue.

Please make it true Based Sega.

Plz make them decent ports, maybe increase draw distance, frame rate and improve the shadow rendering for Shenmue... But not too much, just bring them on par with the actual models instead of the blocky way they were done, it'd probably look off if they changed lighting/shadows to be rendered like say, Alan Wake or something, lol. Then again I already have both mues so, 3 plz.

Do it, Sega, do it. I love Shenmue.

And Skies might well be the Gamecube version. Remember, Sonic Adventure was on XBLA as Sonic Adventure DX.

We need everybody to buy them.

I really don't see the point of re-releasing Shenmue 1 and/or 2 ever at this point. Unless the impossible happened, and they actually planned to make a Shenmue 3, releasing the previous Shenmue games to a new audience wouldn't make sense when the story does not even have an ending.

Just do it and take the money already. Both of these would be day 1's. Especially if SoA is the GC version.

Shenmue with Japanese voices please! I've been meaning to replay it, this would push me to do it. Skies is amazing, but I don't feel the need to replay it again.

I wouldn't buy Shenmue. I already own the DC originals.

I'd buy Skies, only because I never owned it and I'd like to try and get into it but if I remember the demo it seemed quite slow. I also remember a really long ladder. Oh and great title music.

Very strong hint, nice. I'd lvoe to see them next, especially Skies.

That interview was kinda painful to listen to though. Guy's voice started dragging when they began talking about JSR's music. :/

Widescreen special editions like JSR is turning out to be would trump the still iffy emulation, especially on Shenmue's part. If Shenmue really did happen, if every hardcore Shenmue nuts pledged to buy like however many copies it took to equate a $60 big retail game purchase, I wonder if Sega would take note...

Not sure I could stomach Skies random battle rate in this day and age. It already began to drive me plenty insane back then, now I imagine I'll kill again under its influence.

Also wonder if games like JSRF and Shenmue 2 will see release on digital platforms properly fixed in the similar way, or if theyre locked up tight to Microsoft's bosom.

Wonder if loading times for Shenmue would decrease with a digital version. If AM2 does the port for I&II I'll be a very happy man indeed. In case of a release, fans should really rally support and get as much sales as possible.

would buy both on principal.

would prolly replay Shenmue, Skies as well depending on which version/encounter rates.

hopefully, to the former, and to the later - there's a few fan sites/groups that basically exist to do just this. i like being counted among them.

Hasn't it been like 10 years since those games came out, I would hoep the contract would have ended by now.

Pretty much hated the many random encounters. How was it fixed in the GC version?

Skies did have AWESOMESAUCE EPIC ship battles.

This, I keep hearing a lot about Shenmue and am a huge fan of the Yakuza games, so they'd be doing the series justice by putting a lot more effort into the HD-ification...and to it's fans~

If they give AM2 the means to make a decent HD port, they would.

Last year there was a report that claimed that Sega would be putting a lot more effort into their DC ports starting with JSR. JSR HD apparently runs at 60fps, 720p, widescreen and has the popup removed.

They could afford to drop the encounter rate in SoA even lower than the Gamecube version. Or at least speed up the flow of battle somehow. The game becomes "Mash A" in the later levels. Other than that, YES PLEASE OMG
