Shenmue:The Complete Saga.

It's the only rational conclusion.

If it's ANOTHER damn mobile game I think I'll be pulling some of my hair out ](*,)

Seeing as the trademarks in the US expired (despite mainly being a Shenmue Online problem, not too sure what it was all about honestly) I think this is just Sega refiling and renewing the trademarks in Japan for similar issues. I hate to be a downer but we've been burned SOOOOO many times over the last ten years. With that bit of realism out of the way.....

LET'S HOPE IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING, THIS COULD BE IT \:D/ ! At least HD Ports or HD Remakes (both preferably)...possibly even 3 at long long last. All I can say guys is we've got to keep fighting and being as loud and active as we have been, especially with the twitter stuff and the monthly thunderclaps.

NEVER quit fighting, NEVER give up, and NEVER surrender. We've been getting a LOT of good news and hope, especially over this last year or so. One day it WILL happen, and it will be because of how we've come together as a community, each and EVERY one of us has to keep making sure our voices are heard. Sorry for the rant guys...call it inspiration :oops:

Keep those fires burning :mrgreen:

Let's wait a few days and see what Sega has to say about this. Since it has been filed in Japan it kinda seems like it's more of a real thing then the previous fake trademarks but it could still just be fake. Let's see where this is going!

I haven't been able to access shenmue.com for at least a week also. Let's hope they are updating the site for some announcement...

I know this is not concrete in any respect but the site being down does give weight to this.

Fuck it I'll admit I'm hyped.

I cant do it Dojo. I cant allow myself to get hyped and let down again. :(

Im gonna reserve my happiness for when we hear an announcement. The shenmue site being down does make me raise my eyebrow however.

If something is announced, I look forward to the 24/7, 365 day party the dojo will inevitably have.

The Dojo is fast! Just saw the thread on GAF during my morning read and it's already posted here.

Now I'm REALLY counting the days for E3.

Hey all! I very rarely post. but i'm a huge lurker. I find it very interesting that the website is down more than anything. The site has been up for 15 years with no problems. I decided to do a whois lookup on the domain, nothing out of the ordinary it seems. The domain actually expires in november of this year, but it also appears that it's last update was 7/26/2013. Does anyone recall an acquisition by Sega that happened around this time? Here's the whois info:

If they just trademarked this whatever-it-is wouldn't E3 be too early to announce anything? I really hope we'll look back and see 2014 was the year when things came together. Of course 2013 would have had a lot to do with it too.

I was thinking the same thing. The only way we something at E3 is if they had known about this happening for sometime and had time to prepare.
