And another old member coming back :-)

Have been lurking around for some time, now Shenmue HD is great news.
I hope the games will be released and we'll be able to put our hand on it soon.

Always good to see some more Yakuza fans around here. I would of said I specifically took more notice of your post John, but I'm sure people would take that the wrong way considering..

This has me worried. Especially the "it's been done for a year or two" rumor.
A Shenmue HD needs to be done with a lot of care. I don't know much about technical stuff, and I'll thank whoever corrects me on this, bu I get the feeling those low-res textures found in the original would look horrible when stretched to HD, so they better get better versions of those. Also, I hope they don't get the urge to "fix" things that don't need "fixing". Like the camera. Sure, it's not great, not the best in the business by any means, but considering SEGA's track record with those, best not to touch it.
Also, releasing this would mean putting a window on releasing the 3rd one. With Yu gone as a meaningful player at SEGA, I can only see the thing crashing. It NEEDS its original creator, and if they don't want him back/try to convince him to come back, I'm afraid Shenmue will only lose with the transition.

I honestly can't see Sega ever trying making a Shenmue 3 without Yu Suzuki. If they couldn't get Yu onboard, I don't think Sega would even bother trying to make a new Shenmue. I don't think even Sega is stupid enough to try and conceive a new Shenmue without it's father.

If they are going to release this collection, it will be announced at E3.

This isn't a massive update, but it has ben harborne in another interview mentioning shenmue as being one of the most requested games.

Sega has never been afraid to acknowledge that Shenmue 3 is the most requested game by fans.

Is there a vacancy for a Shenmue HD Brand Manager that he's after? Good find.

Being brand manager for Jet Set must be an easy gig since his had to do nothing for almost ten years guess he wants the Shenmue job for more money for doing nothing.

He mentioned Shenmue again in the space of two weeks. This time with a cough (wink), cough (wink).

Its obvious from his interviews since the release of Sonic/Crazi Taxi to DLC that he was hired as a PR man. Back in 2010 he was very rusty, with little personality and style about him, but now he seems "Sega"d up. Trust me, this is 99% confirmation. Those coughs were boarderline hilarious.

I get the impression that he was recently placed in that position. If he has been holding it for years, then yeah that has be a dream job.
