Today Sega released another brand new trailer of the upcoming Shenmue I & II remaster.

The trailer focuses first and foremost on combat, explaining how the game earned its moves from the Virtua Fighter series, and saves can be transferred from Shenmue to Shenmue II in order to preserve Ryo Hazuki’s hard-earned abilities.

We also see the quicktime event feature, coming straight from the era when people didn’t yet hate it.

Much like the Yakuza series, Shenmue I & II also comes with plenty of minigames including arcade classics, and plenty of other minigames and activities like the iconic forklift racing.

You can check out the trailer below. If you want to see more about the game, you can watch the previous English trailer showcasing the characters,  and another about the story, on top of a video that featured a comparison between the game and the real Yokosuka.

Of course, we’re all waiting for the continuation of the story in Shenmue III, of which we recently got the first gameplay screenshot.

Shenmue I & II will launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, on August 21st. If you’d like to reserve a physical copy of the game, it can already be pre-ordered on Amazon.
