Sega of Japan has tweeted a message promoting a new Shenmue themed t-shirt. The front of the shirt has Shenmue in bold letters, and backside has characters such as Ryo, Lan Di, Chai. The shirt can be purchased from this site, and they do ship worldwide. See Adam Koralik's video below for instructions.

New official Shenmue merchandise from Japan? Holy... :shock:
And it looks pretty nice too! I really need one of those... Hopefully they will be available outside of Japan soon.

The design reminds me of something you'd find at a market full of counterfeit goods in Malaysia. But the fact that it includes "1980" and the frigging cat means it is sufficiently quirky enough to have won me over. It also looks like Ryo and Lan Di and holding hands HAHAHA. Would have been an insta-cop but they had to go and put that stupid store logo on the sleeve. Thanks but no thanks Core Choco.

From this page about delivery methods:

Asia
To one piece of T-shirt 900YEN
To two pieces of T-shirts 1240YEN
To three pieces of T-shirts 1660YEN

Oceania / North America / Central America / the Near and Middle East
To one piece of T-shirt 1200YEN
To two pieces of T-shirts 1680YEN
To three pieces of T-shirts 1860YEN

Europe
To one piece of T-shirt 1500YEN
To two pieces of T-shirts 2000YEN
To three pieces of T-shirts 2600YEN

South America / Africa
To one piece of T-shirt 1700YEN
To two pieces of T-shirts 2440YEN
To three pieces of T-shirts 3460YEN

※It is not this limit in the case of the big size


So it would cost around £8.85 to ship one T-shirt to the UK, on top of the purchase price of around £22.40.

To the US it would cost around $11.70 on top of the price of $36.95.

As always with international orders, watch out for additional customs fees that may be payable on delivery.

Isn't that single tweet the biggest marketing for the franchise Sega of Japan has done since Shenmue 1? Am I wrong for thinking this is kinda huge?

LGS speaks truth. Customs, at least over here, are right arses. I've been stung more times than I care to remember. Though, if they are sending it via a cheaper postal service, you might get lucky with it getting through scot free.

To be honest though, for about that price you can just get your own Shenmue tee printed. And without Core bloody Choco on the sleeve.

Am I wrong for thinking this is kinda huge?


Huge this aint.

Yep. Extortionate import tax rates are why I stopped buying Ecko Unimited off a US eBay shop. Well, that n because my account's suspended indefinitely for reasons I cannot disclose...

I just got stung with a £14.89 customs charge today, so it was an issue close to mind. :sad:

The last line of the write-up is annoyingly optimistic.
「芭月涼の旅は、まだはじまったばかりだ!」 "Ryo Hazuki's journey has only just begun!"

I damn whoever wrote that for pushing the right buttons to get me excited about a freaking t-shirt.

Nice! I emailed asking about shipping to Canada. If there are any problems I'll see if a proxy can help me out.
