The Experience Begins

A massive and highly detailed 3D world unlike anything ever seen.

Real-time fighting with moves learned throughout the game - motion capture with real budo experts.

Interact with a huge cast of characters with movements as intricate as a twitch of a finger.

"Magic Weather" and "Time Control" technologies bring this world to life in real-time by dramatically effecting changes to environments.

They should make a Shemue 3 but I think it's about time that it should go to PSN and Xbox live with trophies and achivnments. I WANT MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES BACK. 😞
Also happy at the same time if SEGA do it. 😄😄😄

Join the campaign for Sega to give Yu Suzuki the license to finally make Shenmue 3, with the help of his investors: - Use the Twitter hashtag #GiveYuTheShenmueLicense on the 3rd of each month!
