The recently announced remastered collection of the first two Shenmue games will have several new features such as modern controls, the option to choose between Japanese & English voice acting and an updated user interface. The official announcement trailer is not enough to base on, either, since Sega noted at the start that "This trailer uses pre-release footage, and represents a work in progress".
