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 characters and elements from the series.
This news shouldn't be that disappointing to our North American readers, as the game was only announced for South Korea and China. This news also shouldn't come as a surprise, as the game has been plagued by legal and development issues since its announcement in 2004.
Hit the jump for a proposed office scenario that may have led to the game's cancellation.
