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!

Deadpool6164608d ago


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.

JonDiskonected4608d ago

were they the devellopers or only publishers on shenmue?

ZombieAssassin4608d ago

pretty sure both, dont think sega did too much outsourcing back then

Michael-Jackson4608d ago (Edited 4608d ago )

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. :/

Michael-Jackson4608d ago (Edited 4608d ago )

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!

Disccordia4608d ago

...that had really poor sales and cost$80m to make

jetlian4608d ago

Shenmue and Yakuza HD collections please SEGA.

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.

DigitalAnalog4608d ago

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.

Simon_Brezhnev4608d ago

Well Yakuza 1 is the best in the series.

Inception4608d ago (Edited 4608d ago )

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).

Simon_Brezhnev4608d ago

Yeah gameplay Yakuza 4. I think Yakuza 3 is the worst in the series story wise.

Buuhan14608d ago (Edited 4608d ago )

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...
