Do you still stand by what your friend told you? That he play tested a HD port of Shenmue. How do you know he wasn't pulling your chain, especially if he knows your a fan of the series. You made that topic in 2010, and now we are well into 2013. Do you still believe him?

Maybe the rumour that circulated last year about Shenmue HD already having been made and finished for a couple of years, was actually spot on? *cue dramatic music and shifty eyes*

It does seem somewhat plausible to me that Sega may have commissioned the game to be made, and then got cold feet and decided it's not in their best interest to re-open that Pandora's box. Or maybe something else changed their mind. Far from conclusive, but it is a possibility.

Hey,

He got back to me today and said that he'll try to answer everything over the weekend. I know it's taking a while, but obviously I don't want to push him.

Adam.

Great stuff. It would be interesting to know what happened to the HD-versions. Or if they have extra features, and if so, which ones? But I guess that is classified. I also wondered what was going on at Sega after Shenmue II. Did the team continue working on Shenmue III (besides the assets that we know of)? I remember an article on IGN shortly after Shenmue II where someone from Sega Japan apologized for the long wait between Shenmue I and II. And that the third wouldn't be that far away...

That's just because we follow the scientific method when it comes to Shenmue ;)

PS I read there that you moved to Sweden. Where did/do you live?

Hey,

Still no news I'm afraid. I'm checking my email constantly!

I live in Boras, about an hour from Gothenburg. Are you nearby?

No news yet...
"Shenmue II reveals the true scope that the series encompasses and how this story is still just beginning. If it continues to be composed of ambitious, engrossing and entertaining titles like Shenmue II, Yu Suzuki's legacy may be best remembered for the Shenmue series."

Hey guys,

Not yet I'm afraid. He did email me again though. He apologized for the delay and said he'd get around to it soon. Not much more I can do. Will post when there's an update.

No, not near Borås. I used to live about 2-3 hours north of Stockholm but have been in Belgium for a while for work etc.

Anyway, I'm curious what the response will be.

As Shenmue was one of the prime reasons I became a game designer, this really tickles my fancy...
