Yeah man, that article had alot of people around here going. And it was all baseless unbacked crap. That guy got ripped a new one after that article. He even tried to come here to explain himself, didnt end well at all.

Gah, I remember logging on that day in '05....was totally out of the blue and I was quite literally doing flips and somersaults around the house.

I still think Doree wasn't bullshitting us, and that - as he said - the situation changed after that article was published. He really was a big Shenmue advocate and I don't think he'd fabricate that story. I think his eagerness and excitement as a Shenmue fan clouded his judgment. It's a damn shame. That was 7 years ago! Crazy. I never would have thought it would have taken this long to play more Shenmue.

Shenmue is valuable IP. Even if it doesn't make money, there is value there. I just hope Sega finds a way to set up a realistic budget. Problem is, even if it is announced, officially....there's a huge wait from that point, and lots of time for things to take a disastrous turn. I don't even play video games at all anymore, and I'm not even too sad about it anymore (wistful and nostalgic, yes), but I do think if the day ever comes that I hold a copy of a new Shenmue game in my hand that'd it be one of the more surrealistic and memorable moments in my life.

"I feel like I've known that tree, from a long time ago.....it's a strange feeling."

Apparent magazine scan here:
http://www.gamereactor.eu/news/55061/Sk ... +revealed/

Bear in mind however that this is the same website whose own interview with Ben Harborne started the whole Shenmue/Skies HD excitement back in March, so they're naturally going to encourage any rumor that adds weight to their initial scoop. For fans' sake I hope an official announcement follows.

Hopefully they don't bollox it up with the upgrade, though, it was quite an artful game and able to create great atmospheres and "scenes" rather a lot (matched by the pretty top-notch soundtrack), which I feel could be easy to mess up if tampered with. An HD Dark Rift if done right would be awesome though...


Given that all their Dreamcast re-releases on PSN/XBLA thus far have been nothing but original graphics natively rendered in HD and (sometimes) widescreen, I imagine this will follow suit. The only changes will be updates menus and fonts. You have nothing to worry about.

I hope we get official word soon. Recently beat Skies of Arcadia again on the Dreamcast and wouldnt mind playing it in HD. hopefully they include the Legends stuff as DLC.

Anyone else eager that they make a sequel or something? I'd love to just play a game with a similar feel to it.

Sonic ones were just ports of the Gamecube versions.
