Sega’s Aaron Webber comments on numerous fan requests regarding a possible high-definition remastered collection containing Yakuza and Yakuza 2 for the Playstation 3. .
Wow!! that would be great!! i never play those two, only see the history in Yakuza 3, i will get that hd remake day one!
*Facepalm* Don't get me wrong. I like the Yakuza series, I really do. Fun great games. Great stuff. But damn it Sega! Finish SHENMUE ALREADY! That's a legit fan request and not one to fit your shear amount of laziness.
were they the devellopers or only publishers on shenmue?
pretty sure both, dont think sega did too much outsourcing back then
Yeah there's fan requests but there's not enough of them. Shenmue is a niche game, do they think it will make a large return? I bet Sega doesn't think so, they are the ones who approves games to be developed. It's still about profit at the end of the day. They can always just go the lazy route and port Shenmue on the PSN untouched (No HD, No Truphies)
It's either Shenmue or another Sonic game...and do you really want another Sonic game? I love Sonic but Sega is really dragging him down in a lot of crap these days. I'm not even sure what to think about Sonic Generation...it could be another trap. :/
No I don't want another sonic game but I can't lie that Sonic Generations look great. No trap this time since there's no gimmicks which is why Sonic sucked all this time. I don't even think the sonic team was responsible for Shenmue, maybe some people.
not a niche game! its straight up action rpg!
...that had really poor sales and cost$80m to make
a million which is fine if it didn't have 65-70 million budget
Shenmue and Yakuza HD collections please SEGA.
Shenmue 1 and 2 instead.
The Yakuza games are better. People have way too much nostalgia for the Shenmue games, so much so many refuse to accept the Yakuza series as the successor it truly is.
As much as I love the Yakuza franchise at best it is just a shell of Shenmue. Shenmue had one of the most, if not THE MOST immsersive world I've ever seen in a video game. You can go to nearly every apartment and every NPC is unique - something that no video game until this point can say. The people you fight in this game always have some relevancy to the story and not random thug based for exp. So no, Yakuza is no successor. That would be like saying OutRun is the successor to Sega Rally.
Well Yakuza 1 is the best in the series.
I like Yakuza 2 the best.
In terms of Story, i think Yakuza 2 is the best in the series. But in terms of gameplay, 3 and 4 are the best (imho).
Yeah gameplay Yakuza 4. I think Yakuza 3 is the worst in the series story wise.
Yeah, Yakuza 2 is the best in the series. I kinda disagree with 4 being called one of the best in terms of gameplay, the whole switching between completely different styles via multiple characters did more harm than good... especially when one of those was Tanimura... shit his fighting mechanic... HOWEVER Akiyama was bloody awesome to play as, so I guess it balances out in a way. Also, everyone always says 3 is the worst story... I actually found it to be one of the better ones. I wonder if the whole babysitting for 10 hours just got to people...
Finishing Shenmue should be Sega's number 1 priority now. Yakuza had a really good run and had several good games to run its course. It's about time for them to focus on what many of us REALLY want. We have plenty of Yakuza games now. We have a ton of Sonic games as well. Technology has caught up with the original Shenmue games and many games now these days are like it or exceed it. So after Sega AM2 completes their final Virtua Fighter game, get them back to work on the Shenmue series. After the Shenmue series is over, then you can HD whatever you want or make a Dreamcast 2...whatever. The point is we'll be off your back about it. ;D
It really annoys me that every single Yakuza article is plagued by cries for Shenmue to continue, it is a real discredit to the Yakuza series which is a good series which deserves to keep going (tho they do need to change the formula a bit for future games...)
How many games have there been in the YAKUZA series, and does it have an ending? Shenmue series has seen 2 epic masterpieces, and the story is incomplete for fans. It's not that YAKUZA doesn't deserve sequels or re-releases. It's just that SEGA knows that fans want a conclusion or continuation to Shenmue more.
Yes, do it SEGA!
Make it happen Sega!
