Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia next for HD re-release?

Just a rumour this one, but Gamereactor recently conducted an interview with Sega’s brand manager Ben Harbone to discuss their upcoming HD re-release of Jet Set Radio. During the interview Harbone was asked which Sega games were most requested for an HD makeover.

“It’s going to be Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia as well,  those are a couple of our most requested games,” he replied.

“I can’t say yes or no but we may be working on them.”

So definitely not an official confirmation then, but it seems the chances are higher than ever for these games getting the HD treatment.

Meanwhile, Jet Set Radio HD hasn’t been given an official date but Sega are hoping for a summer release on XBLA, PSN and PC. The full interview can be found here.
