Series creator Yu Suzuki hopes to make the Shenmue franchise an official second sequel. The development of Shenmue 3 depends of the success of Shenmue City.
never got into shenmue, was too boring.
There's always Medal Of Honour though, right?
Sorry man but Shenmue is far from boring. To me, Its one of the best titles ever released. So i for one am in need of a continuation title. And just for that reason alone i am willing to play Shenmue City.
As much as I liked Shen Mue, it will need a massive overhaul in order to speak to most gamers today! They will also have to find a way to get all 16 chapters to fit into a trilogy somehow! I liked it as it was back then, but it needs to do something different in order to stand with the big boys today!
I know what you mean. There was no shooting, nothing ever blowed up, no multiplayer... it's a wonder how so many people got into that, huh? It's crazy! ... ¬¬
fuck sake how many of these have we seen in the past 2 months ? Sony or someone should just publish this and give them the money to get a new engine created and ofcourse make the game!
Oh man, I would seriously kill for a new Shenmue. This needs to happen.
... but just the fact alone that it depends on the success of Shenmue City, is just a complete joke. I don't think there was a single Shenmue fan who was happy with the announcement of Shenmue City.
I am happy. It's a chance to play Shenmue 3... It's obvious that Sega needs some insurance. Shenmue had huge budget back then and it's all about the money. But I'd prefer Shenmue HD collection to be factor of Shenmue 3 possibility...
haha I remember Shenmue, that game was ahead of its time for sure. I loved how the townspeople would always say "oh hellooooo Ryo"
I think he should try knocking at Sony's door, I don' t think SEGA will ever do a new Shenmue due to costs and risks. Sony likes risk more than other.
how is sony gonna help shenmue?
They could produce/publish it.
then the PS3 is the console to sell it on, fo' sho'. And I mean as an exclusive. Yakuza 3 did well enough in the West to garner it's sequel to be released here also. Shenmue II bombed on the original Xbox. PS3 gamers just generally have a far greater appreciation of narrative-heavy, story-led experiences. This isn't fanboyism, it's fact. Plus you need graphical prowess as well, and a game like Shenmue III would demand the very best in that respect. Many PS3 exclusives are the best looking games around these days. As a PS3 exclusive, I genuinely think that a Shenmue HD Collection and Shenmue III would provide substantial sales for SEGA.
shenmue bombed period! It would cost sony a lot to get the exclusive rights. Yea ps3 look great but are gimped in the process. And story driven gaming on ps3 isn't even fact
Make Shenmue 3 for PS3 and put Shenmue 1 & 2 on PSN.
you dirty sumsabiches! Just make the damn game already or stop bringing it up!
please, PS3 exlcusvie also!!
I remember playing Shenmue II on the Xbox it was a lot of fun. Shenmue II is also backward compatible with the 360 for those who might want to try it out.
What is there to disagree with? I did play it on the Xbox and you can play it on a 360, It's a fact. Is it because I said Xbox? If it's the game you don't like why click the link?
Its because you said Xbox and 360 on N4G and the game was never on the Playstation
I'll buy Shenmue City if it helps contribute towards Shenmue 3. Every true Shenmue fan should do the same. They should be able to gather a better gauge of interest though when they release Shenmue 1 & 2 on PSN/XBLA. Since City isn't a "true" Shenmue, it's not going to do as well as a proper sequel would.
Top series love it but i dont own any handheld game system so i wont support it unfortunately one of the only game characters i feel a attachment to as i was so immersed in the story.
Make it a Dreamcast exclusive.
I really hope they bring it to the 360 or the pc. I would buy it in a heart beat
So I get disagrees because I rather buy my games for the 360 or pc? Wow just wow
PS3. You've got Yakuza (cut content but surprisingly sold well). You've got Valkyria Chronicles, a "niche" game that sold nearly a million on the PS3. You've got Bayonetta (a poor port) that outsold the 360 as well as Vanquish. Yu Suzuki's Shenmue game was over 3GB in total, 3 disc that only supported 1.2GB. His next game was nearly over 4GB, just enough to fill an entire DVD disc at that time. His ambition is too big, so naturally I would want him to utilize the entire 50GB of the Blu-ray disc if he were to complete the entire saga within. Not shooting down on the 360, but Microsoft won't go for another 3-disc DVD ever since taking that franchise from SONY. Even RAGE had to stick to 2 DVD when the original plan was 3. I won't even need to add that Shenmue had a very POOR reception on the XBox. -End statement
SEGA were rather stupid back then. They released Shenmue on their lame Dreamcast(Good machine, but it didn't make it because the games all can be played in ARCADE!), then completely shot themselves on forehead by releasing it on Xbox which is perhaps the worst approach a JPN game could make(Piracy make it even worst) and completely deny the target audience which all flock in on the PS2 system. Must be because they're still butthurt about their SATURN beaten like crap(It was good system too UNTIL with all that stupid lame extension). Their marketing is just terrible! They only got themselves to blame for all the bad sales.. Good thing now they learned their lesson and is back on track. I really hope for a new Shenmue. And a full remake of the series in HD!
for none of the reasons you say. 1) SATURN left a terrible taste in everyones mouth. Developers for the shoddy and difficult to program hardware. Gamers for the short lifespan, lack of games, and price. 2) Sony bought all their developer support, much like MS buys their 360 developer support. http://nfggames.com/meat/20...
I still stand by what I said on 3) Most of Dreamcast games can be played in ARCADE. The link's article might hold some truth and pure facts to the failure of Dreamcast. Then again, doesn't the background history remind us all about a current gen system? The PS3? Both system has the same background, whereby both are reputable, continuously flashing out AAA titles and each have their own developer's support(Ofcuz it can't compete against Sony), but the games are awesome. So why Dreamcast doesn't appeal to various region? Because unlike Sony's TRUE EXCLUSIVES that can only be played on their system, Dreamcast games can be played with a single coin on local machines! Why waste 500bucks+35bucks(cd)+30bucks(c ontroller) for that purpose? Just not worth the money. As time past no install base = no support. People shift on PS2 an (inferior system), but with tons of exclusive varieties. Welcome to reality! Games Talk, System walk!
FOR FUCK SAKE EVERYBODY BUY SHENMUE CITY!!! I NEED SHENMUE 3!
I wish they would stop toying with my emotions. Lan Di is going to get away with it.
Jesus Christ, I remembered my disappointment when Shenmue 2 ended and some time later I realized there won't be a sequel... It was the most disappointing thing ever in my entire gaming career. The game was just going to start after Shenmue 2 :(
WOW Tie Game so far
I remember Shenmue having the most amazing game soundtrack ever.
i remeber putting the final disc of shenmue into my dreamcast and the console was unable to read it .. MY rage reached unexpected levels the entire week-end because of it.
sega is really holding Yu Suzuki back from his dream
I would be super extra happy just to see an Shenmue HD Colection on the PSN! An Shenmue 3, then, would blow my mind!
So we have to buy a crappy game in order to possibly get an awesome one? (sigh... *buys 12 copies*) You better get some *real* voice actors for Shenmue 3, though, Yu. No more roping in random people off the street and shoving them into a booth, you hear?
Shenmue 3 needs to be made. My dreamcast is still thinking.
