Shenmue 3 is now a possibility

The main problem is: current generation of gamers barely knew about this masterpiece. Also, why would Sega consider releasing shenmue 3 for gamers who hadn't played the previous games in the series? Marketing and sales wise, it doesn't make sense for them. But now everything could change.

and a lot of games has copy cat a lot of its features, QTE,free roaming gameplay and voice overs for every character in the game.

It really make sense now, if Sega made the move.

himdeel3165d ago

...they'd be relatively small files to download.

vhero3165d ago

it is a possibility and Sony would no doubt want this to happen as it would bring a strong fanbase over to their console.

if it came to either one i would get it. i have the original for the US dc as well as imported the EU part 2 and have the US part 2 for xbox. A part 3 is needed...badly! No matter the system I will be picking it up. Please SEGA!!!

If Shenmue 1 and 2 are released on PSN with an HD upgrade, Im buyin em both all over again.

starvinbull3165d ago

PS3 exclusive with every single piece of ShenMue from 1-3 on 1 BluRay disc that'd be my dream.

A multiplatform release is a must though. The demand is there, the technology has advanced, many other games have made money back on greater budgets.

They can do it but Sega aren't a big budget developer. At their heart they are still an arcade game developer going back to their biggest commercial failure would be a big ask.

This and FF7 (remade) would break records if ever realised.

hay3165d ago

Damn, I'd buy Shenmue on PSN anytime, just to get a bit of hope that this move will bring Shenmue 3. It's one of the best games I've ever played.

54percent3165d ago

I hope Sony acquire Sega as first party.

Microsoft Xbox 3603165d ago (Edited 3165d ago )

Sony with Sega will reign.

cemelc3165d ago (Edited 3165d ago )

Shenmue 1&2 are great games, i mean really good games.

Shenmue 3 will be epic.

LONEWOLF2313165d ago

Shenmue is beyond EPIC, its one of those series that every aspect of it is perfectly put together. Its one of those games that you would wish it never ended.

Jamegohanssj53165d ago

It would sell like hot cakes in Japan. That's all that matters.

Now what if they improve the graphics for shenmue 1 & 2?? I'll be the first to buy them :)

Liquid Ocelot3165d ago

On 360 yeah but Ps3 hell no.

user8586213165d ago

remember how shenmue 2 failed on dat huge xbox, wasnt it mena save xbox in japan?? hmmmmm

Elven63165d ago

Financially Shenmue "failed" everywhere, it may have broke even or just about, it's kinda why Yu Suzuki had to scale his vision of the game back, cancel the MMO, and receive a demotion at Sega recently.

Whitefox7893165d ago

Well I wouldn't say Suzuki is gone from Sega he just has a much much much smaller role being the leader of a single R&D Department AM Plus, which so far it seems they just focus on Japanese Arcade games such as Sega Race TV which was released 2008.

Elven63165d ago

True, but he definietly doesn't have the push he used to have at Sega that he used it. I'm a bit worried, it seems like Sega might crap out a Shenmue 3 to cash in on the niche fanbase, they did recently with Golden Axe, NIGHTs, etc.
