I heard about the move "What's shenmue" and heard it was played in a few cinemas in japan, Ive practically dedicated my time to looking for a 35mm reel of it.

I have never seen that, but it really does make you marvel at the sheer size of that damn game.

This seems familiar to me, no idea why.

That is so-called "Senmue II Demo" which SEGA prepared a little before the actual game's release.
I remember seeing the video at a game store in Akihabara being played repeatedly to PR the game.
Also, SEGA let us rent the disc from a rental video chain for free, and naturally I rented it. ;-)

According to Master Kyodai, it was included in Fighting Vipers 2. Check out this post in another topic:

Master Kyodai wrote: I think the Shenmue "demo" was only included in the japanese pre-order editions of fighting vipers 2. At least I am pretty sure the normal release did not contain the "demo" any more.

Also the demo is just a 5 minute self running movie, so you are better off watching old shenmue 2 clips on youtube. There was never any playable Shenmue 2 Demo on any system, neither in Japan nor anywhere else.

The duration of the video is less than four minutes, though, as you see on YouTube.

I have the disc and yes, it is exactly as you see it in the YouTube video. I don't have any other information about it, and it came to me in the standard jewel case you see here.

Peter, are you possibly thinking of one of the other demos here? These were recent pickups and I haven't gotten around to looking at them yet.

Nice. I'm glad the person I got these from opened them from the back, so they didn't pull the tear strip.

Here are the discs from the sleeves. They're from Dreamcast Magazine Vols. 10 and 12:

Image

The vol. 10 disc has a video approximately 3 minutes in length (sorry for the crappy pics):

Sadly, the vol. 12 disc won't seem to load, although apparently it also has just a video.
