"the game will take place in a parallel universe and you will start off where Shenmue 1 started"

R.I.P Shenmue, you will always be my Number 1 game of all time

... I rather would have seen an announcement for HD remakes of Shenmue 1 and 2 for for XBLA and PSN (including the original voices), clearing the way for Shenmue 3 to be released after that.

This 'Shenmue' news blows chunks.

SilverSlug3650d ago

it be that too, but I would take a 'Shenmue' social game, then have them make money off of it and get Shenmue 3 then have nothing at all.

I hope that is what the funds goes toward, if not, I will be right off pissed.

the fuck is Shenmue City ??
is it a sequel or some kind of MMO ??
and when did they announce this ???

the heck is going on in here ? :\

Fan Tastic3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

Yu Suzuki has produced and directed some amazing games. Unfortunately he has made some duds as well like Shenmue 1 and 2. $70 Million wasted on these turds that could have gone into awesomeness :(

It is a shame that he is wasting his time and energy on another crappy Shenmue game instead of making news Space Harriers, Virtua Cops, Hang ons, After Burners, etc or some new kick ass IP.

*revokes Fan Tastic's rights to be a gamer*

VandimionX3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

They absolutely were NOT turds, but that being said, when you take a good hard look at them they don't exactly scream justification of said $70 million either.

Still great games, I wish he would just make a Shenmue 3.

Are you serious? I guess you're either the kind of person who likes a Wii or was introduced to gaming from Modern Warfare 2.. /s

Fan Tastic3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

I do like to game on the Wii, though my main console is the PS3 :D I hate Call of Duty games.

You can play Shenmue City while I'll be playing Uncharted 3 :D

I've been gaming since well before (first console 2600, though if you had any sense of history you'd know that by reading the rest of the post about Space Harrier, After Burner. You've missed on his great games.

HornyHaggis3650d ago

I do know those games but calling Shenmue 1+2 a set of duds? Now I can't agree with that at all.

cb4g3650d ago

...and I agree with Fan Tastic - it was a smelly piece of turd. Although, I did finish it just to see if it got any better...but, it didn't.

Ryo was more robotic than Robocop and his painful dialogue made me cringe everytime I heard him speak.

Fan Tastic3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

alright.. Just doesn't make sense that you know those games yet say "or was introduced to gaming from Modern Warfare 2" which isn't even in within a decade. ;)

And yes the dialogue is horrible, the animations are stiff. The gameplay is even stiffer. How dare you insult Robocop ;) "I'd buy that for a dollar" wait when it comes to Shenmue I wouldn't/

Kick in the teeth of fans who have been waiting patiently for a proper sequel. I hate Yahoo.

gillri3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

not impressed. Just release Shenmue 1 and 2 for XBLA with HD visuals, subtitles and japanese speech

but this time you gamers need to actually buy it!!! I brought shenmue 1 and 2 for the DC and shenmue 2 again for the xbox

so I did my part, but its the people that only play PC games or only cared about the PS2, its your fault! I always buy the great games even when they are quite obscure..on any console/system btw

people that were RPG/adventure gaming fans during 1999/2000 and didnt buy shenmue should look at themselves a bit

Yi-Long3650d ago

... unless Sega manages to fuck it up again, releasing it with only the horrible english dub or something.

If they half-ass it, they can only blame themselfs if no-one buys it.

"we don't have money to make a game everybody wants, but we have money to make a game no one wants. And when this game inevitably tanks we will use it as an example not to make a real shenmue game."

kesvalk3650d ago

another great series bites the dust...

ironically, sonic color seems to be getting very high scores...
