Shenmue fans have been suffering due to the lack of any news of a return of the Shenmue series, and something new has just happened. The trademark for “Shenmue” has been canceled in the US because of lack of use by Sega.
Nooooooo!!!!!! Quick someone buy it! Call the paramedics I'm suffering from a heart attack and I am to die here. Death Rattle.............
Lol it is fine Sony hinted at it, just cause they haven't renewed it yet doesn't mean they won't or will abandoned the franchise
Lets hope so
haven't they just released Sonic All Stars Transformed with Ryu in it? doesn't that act as a use of the trademark? and doesn't this have something to do with the massive series being announced soon on PS4? https://encrypted-tbn2.gsta...
Yu Suzuki's speaking at GDC next month with Mark Cerny translating. It all adds up with OPM's cover reveal next month. Hopefully Shenmue 3 is announced with Sony picking up the trademark and an HD/Remake Collection of the first 2 games is released beforehand too! http://www.gamespot.com/art...
I am hoping that this is the game that Playstation Madazine is announcing next month! http://www.justpushstart.co...
LOL, typical Sega mishaps.
More like typical SEGA mismanagement. It's almost as if they are actively trying NOT to make money. Was it really that hard to release a Shenmue I and II HD Collection on a single Blu-ray for PS4 and XB1? Considering how well Shenmue upscales in PC emulators, it would be cheap to develop and it would sell millions on nostalgia and hype alone. I don't know the first thing about business, but I could turn SEGA into one of the most profitable publishers in the industry in less than a year.
Say it isn't so....crying
Is this the series that Sony was talking about that they were going to announce next month. I hope so. I've never played a Shenmue game but if Sony picked this up, I'd buy it. Even better if they release an HD collection before 3.
Now MS buys the trademark and makes a game... This would be an absolute nightmare.
MS- Shenmue Kinect Sony- Shenmue 3 at 1080p and 60fps (an maybe the last two HD Remaster).
Great, so instead of Press A to jump over the crates it's Flap your arms around like a windmill and lift one leg in the air. I really loved my 360 but seriously, f**k the kinect
Buying a trademark doesn't give you the rights to the IP, just to the name.
Are you kidding me! This is the best news I have heard all day. I know now that this game can and will be picked up by a Sony or Nintendo publisher..
Yeah, who cares who makes it as long as someone poops out a Shenmue 3!
They only lost the name. Even if other company takes the name "Shenmue", they couldn't use the characters, settings and whatnot.
It's cool. Sony bought it. Significant franchise right there.
Its going to be on the PS4.
Really? Sony bought it? when? where did you got that news?
I just want to play it in HD then finish the story. hopefully somebody picked it up
"Suffering" LMAO! Let it go people.
Seriously, had to laugh at the tone of this article. It's hardly surprising Sega haven't revisited a franchise that originally cost them so dearly - risk it again to placate a small fanbase + bandwagon jumpers?
for fu**ck sake sony BUY the fu**cking game
Adam Koralik is going nuts right now.
Please, I've been waiting so long, don't allow Sony to create Shenmue 3. Only Nintendo for me can do justice to the franchise, colourful rich worlds, something Nintendo has always excelled in...the Gamepad also would allow for some innovations.
This comment is so salty that i don't even know where to begin with ಠ_ಠ
So I wonder if this is the significant series being announced for PS4.
Not worried Yu Suzuki is going to GDC next month having a Shenmue post mortem talk and Mark Crenny will translate what he's saying
So confirms Sony buying it like a boss!
