I'd say these Shenmue ones do count as genuine remasters. Smoother graphics and widescreen capability, sure, but they're also updating button prompts to match whatever system they're played on, they're including alternate control methods, dual-language options, hopefully including the time-skip in Shenmue 1 (fingers crossed), etc. They're taking the original development materials and creating a new package out of it.
So yeah, genuine remaster.

I agree. I also define things that way and think that what they're doing qualifies as a remaster. But I've seen discussions where people have started to confuse terms like remaster, remake etc. So I figured that I would ask first what was meant by the question to be sure.
I also hope that they include the time-skipping feature. It's probably one of the more important changes since it could prevent some unneeded negative reactions.

Incredible achievement by the fans and its looking they are catering to many different needs with voice, control system and UI.

I was wondering if people had seen the images posted through the steam product post, they are downsized to fit but can be clicked on to view the original full size version. They are higher quality than the ones posted in this thread so will link them: Image 1, Image 2, Image 3, Image 4, Image 5. I think the game is looking nice, can't wait to see some live footage.

Oh and Adam Koralik posted a slight update which gives some new info and hints at much more still unannounced https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUP7s3bjVZ0&t=0s

Those screens look fantastic. It's nice to see a sharp and redone UI as well, that always goes a long way.

As for the confusion between remaster, remake, etc. I'm also seeing that a lot. It's pretty simple really:

Port - 1:1 with the main goal being as close to the original as possible.
Remaster - Original assets with improvements.
Remake - New game from the ground up, re-introducing the original concept.

This is indeed a Remaster.

Seeing that first screenshot reminds me that it wouldn't be a bad idea to add an enemy health bar to Shenmue.
Funny how there is now an exact display for the forklift's speed.

Since Thursday, I've been away and I've had zero access to the internet.

I get home and I see this. Awesome.

Very excited about dual audio. Experiencing Shenmue 1 in Japanese will be a fresh experience. I know there are hacks to play the japanese version with english subtitles but I never tried them and they have some syncing problems I believe.

I randomly found out about this through a HotUKDeals message about the 365Games pre-order price... I literally had to reread it multiple times to be sure it wasn't Shenmue 3.

Amazing news.... Props to Sega of Europe for seemingly taking the lead on Shenmue HD!

I hope it sells- I feel there's an outside chance it will as story driven games have had a resurgence (Telltale et all)- I'd personally market towards those gamers.

They put the health gauge from Shenmue II in Shenmue I? Boss. Will definitely relieve some stress from the final battle with Chai!

Speaking of epic battles, wonder how stunning the Baihu cage match will be in HD? And the whole part in Kowloon, Shenmue II is really gonna be a visual treat.

I’m not into developing , I know almost nothing about it, but do you guys think it would be possible for them to apply some sort of graphic filter? Something like 2-3 types of filter we can select + the original look.
I’m saying this because I can see that a lot of pixels are still very low quality, and maybe Playing with filtering and a new light system might help.

I don’t know, but I’m thinking about Life is Strange, which isn’t impressive when it comes to details and graphics, but it has that “wallpainting” kind of filter that improves the visuals a lot
