It has been a weird ride for fans of Yu Suzuki’s RPG-slash-life-simulator Shenmue. The original game, released in 2000 for the Dreamcast, was one of the most innovative of its time, one of the first to attempt an authentic, living, breathing world where people went about their activities as they
Shenmue 3 is so close, we can feel the punches. The latest trailer from Sega, Ys Net and Deep Silver hit the Net this morning, and they make one thing clear: Ryo’s fists will get a workout. Of course, getting into fist fights is only part of the Shenmue experience.

Here’s something we never expected to hear. The websute USGamer caught up with Yu Suzuki, director, writer and pretty much everything behind the existence of the Shenmue series.

As you all know, Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki and his team have been working on the long-awaited third game in the Shenmue trilogy for at least two years now. It has been far longer since either of the first two games saw a retail shelf. Shenmue 2 came out for
The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter launched on June 16th, 2015. It’s been two and a half years since then, and we haven’t seen much of the game, but in this case that’s a good thing. A Shenmue sequel that could be done in two years (with today’s development standards) wouldn’t be
Whether or not a retail version of Shenmue III will actually be available upon launch for consoles is still not clear. According to VG24/7, an email exchange with the developer Ys Net stated that the company was still unsure whether it would make a physical edition of the long-awaited sequel
