Shenmue

The main Shenmue theme still gets me all teary-eyed. After watching these videos of a fan-made HD remake, it happened again! Korean Shenmue fan Nokon Kid has crafted some of the original game in HD, and he's done a...
At Yu Suzuki's GDC postmortem of Shenmue, he fully detailed the classic Dreamcast game's development, from an early prototype to a Virtua Fighter RPG to its final beloved form. Many details, images, and concepts were shown for the first time ever, which was a total thrill for me as a huge fan of the game and Suzuki's other works. 
Yu Suzuki took the very first question after his GDC Shenmue postmortem just now, probably knowing exactly what would be asked. You can guess the question.  Suzuki replied, "Of course I want to make one if I have the rig...

French reporter Sebastien-Abdelhamid recently interviewed Yu Suzuki, creator of the Shenmue series at the Monaco Anime Game Show, and has a bit of a bomb to drop on us. Apparently, Suzuki may entertain the idea of crowdfundin...
Hey. It's late on a Tuesday night. We're about to enter the mid-week hump. It's time for some f*ckin' kung fu action up in here, am I right? Here is a very simple yet effective video from José Cardona. He though to hi...

Do you remember the Tomato Convenience Store jingle from the Shenmue games on Sega Dreamcast? Of course you do, as it's impossible to forget the song. If you're anything like me, you spent most of the game just standing in o...
An anonymous tipster close to operations at Sega tells Gamerzine that both Dreamcast titles Shenmue and Shenmue II have been updated to HD, and have been finished for "well over a year," taunting us with by saying that "Shenm...
Jet Set Radio is yet another Dreamcast game that's destined to appear on digital distribution platforms, and at this point, I have to wonder how much further Sega is willing to go. In a recent interview with Gamereactor, the ...

The producer and director of Shenmue, Yu Suzuki, finally reveals how the Shenmue series would have ended. Shame we'll never see Shenmue end especially after seeing how it was all supposed to play out.
During Yu Suzuki's GDC panel he dropped this bomb about Shenmue 3: "I think Sega will let me make it." Don't get too excited, as this probably means mothing. According to Joystiq, Suzuki put the smack down on that dream by sa...
God, what has happened to my game? Shenmue was the pride of Sega, weird stretchy face textures and all. It was a flagship game for Sega's flagship game system. From there the IP slowly crept down in respectability. ...
In an interview with 1UP, Shenmue director Yu Suzuki said that a Shenmue 3 concept already exists. I'd love to get my hands on that! The concept for Shenmue 3 already exists, so... [Laughs] Suzuki continues: "The world of S...
We've asked in every way possible. We've tried everything to get Shenmue 3 from Sega: pleading, petitions, bribes. A guy named Shenmue Fan is trying something a bit different, and maybe a bit more Japanese. Here's how he woul...
Just when we gave up on Shenmue 3, Yu Suzuki has to go and bring it back up. The former Sega man is now heading up online social game Shenmue City, but he talks with Famitsu on why the next game in the series wasn't Shenmue 3...
Yesterday I mentioned that I would kill for a new Battletoads game, which I would, but it leaves me in a bit of a pickle as I'm not sure how to explain how badly I want a third Shenmue game. Saying I would cause a nuclear hol...
I hear this often, and it's starting to bug me. Yes, we know that Shenmue and the sequel did sell that well. But even more than that, I think Sega's still hurting from how much they spent to produce those games. Sure, they we...
Aw, that's too bad. But Shenmue fans have had enough with the teasing anyway. Racing as the girl from Shenmue in upcoming racing game Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing would have been far too painful. She was a contender, tho...
They would have to be, as Sega definitely wouldn't just stick one of its most beloved characters, Ryo, from Shenmue, in a silly racing game as a bonus character.The new Shenmue is located in a...uh, Korea, where...let's see, ...
Remember when Shenmue and Virtua Fighter creator Yu Suzuki was the sh*t? He still is in my book. But back then you would always hear about him being attacked by geeky fans as he got out of Ferrari in a parking lot somwehere. ...
Don't get me wrong: I loved Shenmue and its sequel. I was always a Sega kid, and it was a thrill playing both of these titles, weird stretched texture faces and all. And yes, I would love to play a game of Lucky Hit with you....
While Yu Suzuki, famed creator of Virtua Fighter and Shenmue, has kept a relatively low profile of late -- he's been working on some arcade racing titles, but that's about it -- he is still an employee of Sega Corporation, sa...
Rodger Swan descided to make a trip out to Yokosuka to see if he could find any real world locations based off of Sega's Shenmue. Sure enough, he was able to locate several, including what looks like the path that leads to ...
Ah, Shenmue. I'll never forget firing it up on the Dreamcast and being in a state of semi-shock over the graphics and gameplay, not to mention a sense of delight that I was playing a game set in various parts of Japan and Hon...
Word from all over the place is that the planned PC MMORPG version of Sega's crate moving, direction asking simulator, Shenmue, has been canceled. The game was to be set around the events of Shenmue II, featuring many charact...
The above video proves, once and for all, that indie pop and cult classic SEGA games go together like the Internet and IP theft.The amazing part is that the song is way better than most of whatever passes for music even in the idealist realm of indie rock. Yes, Sufjan, that 50 States gimmick was clever for a moment or two, but you never wrote a song about forklift races, did you?
