Aww. I swear, Shenmue is cursed. 

Japanese social game Shenmue City only lasted about a year. Series creator Yu Suzuki directed the free-to-play mobile title, and it was slated to come to web browsers, but the Shenmue curse strikes again. The game shut down on December 26. Andriasang says that the game's website was updated with a message from developer YsNet thanking players.

Maybe Yu Suzuki should clean it up and release it internationally for smartphones. I think it might do alright.

By the way, if there ever was a real Shenmue City, I would so totally move there.

Let's all remember this fine title and franchise by listening to the "Tomato Convenience Store" theme, found after the jump.
