Nah, played Shenmue the summer before II was released, so I always just assumed.

I don't think I had played the first when the second was initially announced to be made, but I do remember the feeling I got when I found out that they were porting it to Xbox.
I had played the first game, signed up here, gotten all kinds of excited about this game that by all logic was going to have a sequel... then when I did further research afterward, I found out there was a second game, but it wasn't coming to the DC in the US. Heart sank, all that stuff. I remember watching videos of it on Gamespot and IGN (back before Youtube was so popular, so you had to go to the gaming sites) and thinking it looked so amazing.
So then when it was announced for Xbox, I was a very, very happy boy.
It may have actually been the final push for me to buy an Xbox. I seem to remember getting the console, and not actually knowing what to play on it. So clearly I'd gotten it months in advance of S2 in anticipation.

I remember waiting ages to load the QuickTime trailer on my crappy ISDN connection. Watched Xiuying wave her arms about 50 times while waiting for the rest of the trailer to load.

I remember that I would not turn off the pc for almost a week to see that trailer. It was an ordeal because every phonecall could kill the load.

Oh shit... man, it's been years since I've seen that trailer, yet I remember it so clearly. The beat at the beginning, the sudden uproar of music, and everything after. Yeah, I must have watched that over and over back in the day. Nice burst of nostalgia there.
