Kotaku: The creator of titles like Virtua Fighter, OutRun and Shenmue has retired from his Creative Officer position at Sega of Japan, Sega announced this week. But the company isn't done with Yu Suzuki just yet.
Nooooooo!!! Shenmue was one of the best games ever!!!!!
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEE S !
He isn't entirely gone, he just stepped down from AM2, a copy which he hasn't done anything in since VF4 I believe. It sucks though, Yu Suzuki is the guy who could save Sega and bring them back on the map, he is definitely up their with the likes of Kojima. Unfortunately Sega doesn't consider him their Kojima and instead want to push Nagoshi.
Always ahead of themselves, but highly underated. R.I.P Arcade Gods
Shenmu 3...!? Please....!
No more Shenmue? noooooo!!! Now there's no hope for a Shenmue 3.
We want more shenmue
I WANT SHENMUE 3!!!!!
It's a sad, sad day. Shenmue is one of those magical franchises that means so much to so many gamers...
SEGA needs a life saver. Their games haven been showing any progression for decades! They first need to stop making the all-time rubbish SONIC! Even if it's their mascot, they need to tear that damn thing down! Work on more games like SHENMUE!
i think their savior will be a title called bayonetta ign said that it probably would be the best action game this year
This is most probley the saddest gaming news I could ever hear, I would rather playstation go bust than hear this news. Truly gutted that it seems confirmed that shenmue 3 wont be released and it is a given the head man wont be there. What a fcukung waste.
finished in sega?????? i hope yes.........
why??????????????????????????? ?????????????????????????? quality is why you succeded and and lack of quality is why you will fail... yakuza is good and so is valkryia chronicles but we want shenmue 3, panzer dragoon saga 2, last bronx 2 and a phantasy star rpg.. non of that online crap
Please bring After Burner Climax and Super Hang On 2 to Live Arcade and PSN Sega. :( I think they are already bringing OutRun online. And at even if the game never comes at least tell us what happens in Shenmue. :(
i remember playing shenmue on the dreamcast that game really had me with its plotline and unique characters i hope this dude makes shenmue 3 but i doubt it will be better than the 1st 2 the first was the best though my opinion
Nooooooooooo! No shenmue 3 :(
it's sad to see a man with talent ( all his games prove that he has talent ) getting less importance and less chance to give birth to something .. i don't get sega ..they wanted to get less hardcore to touch a great number of people but all they did was to hurt everyone ... minus some exceptions like ryu go gotoku or valkyria chronicles ... these 2 games shouldn't be exceptions ..they should have been the rules !!! the main part of the delivery on sega part ...
I just hope they are going to do Shenmue 3 before he fully retires.
He put out some remarkable revolutionary games during his tenure at Sega. It's too bad one of his greatest efforts was largely ignored.
i know i read something about it almost a year ago... and its the same article!!! AGAIN...HE IS NOT RETIREING!!! He just stepped down from his role as a producer!!! This does not affect Shenmue 3 (if its ever coming) this is old news and taken out of context (like always on N4G) enjoy your klicks Kotaku!!! *shakes head*
It is wonderful! http://www.macvobconverter....
