    It's been 8 months since the Gamescom trailer and the most they show now is 4 screenshots.

    That game isn't coming out this year. Not saying it's a bad thing necessarily but people who were hoping it will be 2018 should manage their expectations.

    @Tuffty yeah it seems very unlikely. I don't mind waiting a bit longer.

    There's always E3 I suppose. But judging by the trailer and screenshots it looks a long way from finished.

    Nah, they're once in a lifetime experiences and thus not the sort of thing I'd replay.

    Didn’t take long for the first person to piss on everyone’s chips.
    It’s a massive result for fans of the series, the series itself and for a new generation of gamers who’d like to try it out.

    But yeah, ‘Nah’.

    anyone with a pc that isn't shithouse could already play it whenever

    the missing platform here is switch, portable shenmue would be the shit
  • Deleted user 14 April 2018 09:02:04
    I've never fully played either so will grab the remasters when they arrive.

    I've played them both multiple times and still have them on the dreamcast. Definitely more than a one done experience for me, I'll be picking them up. Looking forward to being able to play the first Shenmue without the awful English dub even though it does have it's own weird charm.

    @Dolly

    Excuse me? Am I not allowed an opinion?

    I'm not pissing on anyone's chips, just making a subjective comment about my favourite games of all time.

    I think it's great they're getting put out again, for the reasons you've stated. Just this one massive fan here will pass on them for his own reasons.

    Yeah tbh I'd be well up for a Switch port, but as much as I loved these games at the time (still have Dreamcast copies of both), I don't think time will have been kind to them.

    Never played a Shenmue in my life, would have been all over this on the Switch.

    I knew there was supposed to be an announcement in the early hours at Sega FES, but I never thought it'd be this.

    I'm happy.

    @JiveHound It's not that surprising, given that 2 was on the original Xbox and many saw that console as a bit of a low-key successor to the DC. It would have been really shitty for it to skip Xbox, IMO.

    There's always been a chance 3 comes to Xbox at some point as well.

    Not that interesting. Although Sony have helped fund Shenmue 3, the series isn't tied to the console.

    I actually think we could see Shenmue 3 turn up on Xbox at some point

    I don't think time will have been kind to these but then several of you still play them so I guess maybe they'll be ok.

    It's not that surprising about Xbox, haven't sega been sitting on these ports some quite some time? Although maybe they've revisited them again now.

    Just to clarify the above: Sony haven't funded Shenmue 3 at all, but they are, as far as I know, handling the PS4 port (or at the least, the marketing around it). As I understand it, there's nothing to stop Microsoft from reaching out to Ys Net and saying, "Hey, we'll pay for an XBO version."

    I think it'll come, but probably a bit later.

    I beg to differ. I find it interesting as I will be able to play it.

    I did assume Sony funded 3 so had written it off. It now makes sense to release the two predecessors to gauge interest on the platform for a third.

    @Ror It is kind of surprising that Sega haven't lost the source code.

    @JiveHound I laughed, and then I remembered Panzer Dragoon Saga.

    :(

    :D:D

    Fuck yes! Played through number 1 a couple of years ago when 3 was announced, but have not wanted to buy shenmue 2 again due to crazy dreamcast prices.

    Will for sure be getting this!

    I never finished 2.

    I reckon I might make this one of my 10 this year. I hold Shenmue in very high esteem.
