I'm gonna laugh my head off if it's Driver.

Would be so typical.

Maybe.. if you email SEGA after buying it and let them know the only reason you bought the game was because Ryo Hazuki was in it. Then include a PS stating you want Shenmue III.

^ Today's. They are obviously leaving the "D----- M-----" to last so they can laugh at hopeful Shenmue fans. Seriously, I will eat duck shit if this is a clue for Shenmue. It's far, far more likely to be "driver" for Outrun, as previously suggested.

That's exactly what I'm going to do. If the Shenmue connection is confirmed, I'm pre-ordering the Xbox360 version, the Wii version, and the DS version, and I'll email Sega telling them why I did.

As for the 'D----- M------' part of the clue obviously being left till last, I've no idea why they're doing this. Either the answer is 'Dragon Mirror' and they want to prolong the agony amongst Shenmue fans for as long as possible so we go nuts (good) when it's announced, or the answer ISN'T 'Dragon Mirror' and they want to prolong the agony amongst Shenmue fans for as long as possible so we go nuts (bad!) when it's announced.

The pain, the suffering... please let it be Dragon Mirror!

Hmmm I dont know maybe im getting a bit cynical about all things shenmue these days but I think people maybe getting a bit worked up over nothing.

Yes it would be cool if Ryo is in this game but I wouldn't be at all surprised if this was just another ruse by Sega to drum up interest in this racing game and to torture us shenmue fans some more, plus even if Ryo is in it ultimately it means nothing more then Sega digging out a character from one of its older I.P's to fill up the selectable characters in its new game.

Honestly I don't see this as good news or bad news if its true, I think its pretty cool and I will be watching how this develops but in the end quite honestly I want to play shenmue 3 not Ryo Hazuki pro racer.

The way I see it is that for YEARS Sega have not even acknowledged Shenmue - no mention of it in their games sections on their websites, even.

So, Sega set up an official Shenmue twitter - the ONLY twitter they have for one of their games that isn't currently available, then the possible inclusion of Shenmue in one of their new games. Quite a turnaround.

If they are 'testing the water' to see if Shenmue could still be a valid IP for them, then I am going to support them.

If that D word turns out to be "DRIVING", for a racing game it's not much of a fucking clue is it..

Exactly. It just doesn't make sense.

They are obviously leaving the D and M words till last. That's got to say something.

I think Sumo Digital were quoted as saying that for Sega Superstars Tennis they would have liked to have used Ryo.

Cartoony fan-service racing game - perfect justification to use Ryo (who raced in Shenmue).

The sudden turnaround of going from never mentioning Shenmue, to suddenly having an official Shenmue twitter.

For those who think Ryo wouldn't fit in the game... look at Smash Brothers, look at Kingdom Hearts, and look at New International Track and Field (also by Sumo Digital)

If he's in and you guys are planning on buying the game to "support" Shenmue, make sure you're connected to the internet and play as Ryo. Companies actually take data on their games through the internet. Kind of a long shot, but you might as well at that point haha

Will Ryo still have the cut on his face after ten years?

If it is dragon mirror we will all be gutted when they cancel the game 5 minutes after revealing the answer.

I wouldn't be gutted if they cancelled it at all. At the very least it would bring attention to Shenmue and get people talking about it again.

You say that but I think the dojo has been a bit more active lately.
