Holy bajesus. Last month's Tweetathon was all about pestering both companies to do exactly this. Obviously still in the rumor stage, but incredible if these talks are even happening.

Hope this is true.

Plus there is this - not much, but another nod to Shenmue.

A fashion magazine.....

Also look at Shenmue on a whole. Sega have to see it was a mistake to make II XBox only rather than multiformat. That still stands IMO just bring it to all consoles and PC.

Is there any credibility to this/this publication? Anyone in Japan that can shed any more light on this?

Given Nintendos range of software with its Japanese based titles and RPG games, Shenmue would easily fit the mould for a Nintendo release. Especially since Sega have limited their development to family/Sonic titles. Seems like a no brainer the more i think about it, that Nintendo would snap up Suzukis development studio since he has gone independent.

Who knows? People said it should have gone to PS2 and would have sold 5M+ easy but i just think Shenmue was ahead of its time back then and would have flopped no matter what.


Now days? Not so much but with Sega in the position they are in need to hit every area they can. Hell add PSP Vita, 3DS and phone/tablets to the list.

This is quite a series of events the past day. I say it's a conspiracy! Haha, but uh... perhaps they are indeed having talks about the series. I'm just curious if thats really what the article says and not just a description about Joy and her boobs :-p. We need a translator in the house.

We certainly do. Even assuming the Reddit user (who only registered one day ago) is reporting this in good faith and not just trolling, it's impossible to tell how much of what he's saying is actually in the article and how much of it is elaboration/extrapolation by his friend in Japan who relayed the message to him. Japanese whispers, as it were...

それがWiiのUのベヨネッタ2の成功発表後、任天堂はゲーマーに、今シェンムーシリーズの将来についてセガと交渉中で聴いている私たちのインサイダーによって報告されています。このような状況では、シェンムーIIIは国際的出版社と資金提供者として任天堂と同様のWii Uに来ることが可能です。

日本では1999年後半に来ている最初のゲームは、コストはクリエイター鈴木裕が報告したように、4700万ドルの周りに推定される。

I transcribed the first two paragraphs so you guys can google translate and get a gist of it to gauge it's legitamacy if you want. I'll finish the rest later when I get back.

For those who don't want to bother to go to Google, first two paragraphs supposedly say as follows:


After the announcement of the success of Bayonetta 2 U Wii, gamers, Nintendo has it been reported by our insider who listen in talks with Sega about the future of the Shenmue series now. In such a situation, Shenmue III comes to Wii U Nintendo and similar funding as an international publisher and is possible.

Cost creator Yu Suzuki As reported in Japan, the first game is coming in the second half of 1999, it is estimated that around 47 million U.S. dollars.

Its not necessarily the translation that i want to know more about, its the publication and the source. I mean there are conflict here, firstly in that this is a fashion magazine?? I mean why on earth would a gaming announcement like that, albeit a rumor, be doing in there? It just needs some clarification.
