Shenmue 3 is finally announced

Gamereactor writes: "The latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Maitsuki Playstation reported about some players around the world dreamed of ever since we last återsåg game character era Shenhua and Ryo Hazuki, namely that Shenmue 3 is finally on its way. Although Yu Suzuki himself left Sega's his original script to be used for a sequel, and he will also provide guidance during development to get to where the atmosphere.

Shenmue 3 will be developed by the parts from the old original team and the Yakuza team late in February released Yakuza 3 for Playstation 3 in Japan. Graphic promised real great that makes the old games justice, and the story should be easy to digest even for those who played the precursors to avoid excluding anyone."

With a particular attention, Gamereactor has just published the news that Shenmue 3 is in production but it's an April Fool joke. (PS3, Shenmue III)

I've been on here no more than 5 minutes. I am sick of all these April fools jokes. They are annoying, not funny. The only thing I worry about though is a real game announcement mixed in with all the garbage will not get noticed and thrown in the mix.

Apiril Fools... YOU MOTHER F***ER!!!!!
Man i almost bought it. how dare you get my hopes up like that! Oh so sad we will never EVER get part 3 to this amazing game.
sinncross  +   1844d ago
BUt considering Yakuza 3, I'm sure SEGA can see how Shenmue would prove fruitful for them.

Though i wonder if it were to ever be announced whether they wud make it ps3 exclusive ro not... if so id like them to do ports or 'remake's of the other 2 first.

If it was any other game, okay, but Shenmmue 3. Don't toy with my emotions like this!
Catharsis  +   1843d ago
I fully agree, something like Shenmue 3 which has been pulling the strings of our hearts for many years should not be toyed with.
LeShin  +   1843d ago
April Fools Day should be abolished...
...this is getting tiresome. I think I'll also leave N4g today and come back 2moro.

Geeze, everyone thinks they are SO clever. I hate April Fool's day. This morning my daughter replaced our sugar with salt. Ever have a heaping spoonful of salt in your coffee? I was not amused...

Bring me Shenmue 3 NOW!!!! It is not very amusing that they are kidding with Shenmue 3. If it was Ghost Recon 9 or Rainbow six in Los Angeles I would just be glad that it was an april fools, but Shenmue 3?!? COMMON!!!!

that april fools :(
I hate April fools. Its just really stupid. Last year my local Newspaper had an article that claimed an escaped serial killer was hiding out in my local town. People actually got quite terrified. I knew right away that it was a joke. But I can see how someone might actually take it seriously. I think April fools should just be banned. Its more annoying then anything. Its just an excuse for bad journalism.
mastiffchild  +   1843d ago
April fool jokes are OK but this is almost like somebody telling you that they just saw your dad that you thought died years ago but actually he's still alive.
Then saying "april fool" and laughing at your broken little heart. Everybody wants Shenmue3 to actually happen so badly that this is cruel.

-"Doctor, how is my leukemia progressing?"

-"I have some good news for you, little Tim! Some swedish scientists just discovered a cure! You're going to be fine!"

-"Really?! Oh... I'm so happy!!!" *cries*

-"HAH, got you. Classic. No, you're gonna die."

I'm going to lose my mind today. To many jokers.

Luckily, I can halfway take a joke. :)

It is not like I believe it
however, you just opened an old wound :(
DarkSniper  +   1843d ago
This news should be reported as fake. Dark Sniper doesnt take kindly to those who manipulate the hearts of Shenmue fanatics across the world in regards to a highly anticipated sequel of this AAA series. Performing these kind of actions will get you shot. Consider yourself warned.
