View Full Version : Shenmue 3 a no-go!?!?

For those that haven't seen the front page of XBA:


With Shenmue 2 recently being released in America for the Xbox, it’s emerged that, should it not sell well, Shenmue 3 will never see the light of day.

Given the less than impressive Xbox sales in any region, we’d be surprised if Shenmue 3 isn’t thrown into the trash compressor. A crying shame given the brilliant gameplay that was had with the first two games.

Course, could be a rumour, so you never know.

K, I didn't buy the first Shenmue seeing how I didn't own a DC. I bought Shenmue II on Xbox because of the way Ninja was talkin about it. I played it, and loved it.

Anyone who's played this game knows that this story needs to be told through to its completion. You just can't stop half-way through!

I do agree with a comment Hugh-Jass said, that Sega should have exploited the Xbox's hardware a bit more, but I still think that the gameplay and storyline were MORE than enuf to make up for this.

If Shenmue 3 doesn't see the light of day, I can say for sure that there will be an incredible amount of peeved and dissapointed gamers around the world.

Merc, have you played any of the Shenmue's? If not no wonder you'd be happy. You have no idea how awsome those games are. One of the greatest RPG's ever made, plain and simple. I would be ****ed as hell to not have the opportunity to see the end of this story... who knows where it leads, the possibilities are endless. I hope to god they make all the Shenmue games, but I hope the next one actually takes advantage of the Xbox's power!

Merc, why the hell would you be happy. Even if you didn't like the game, why would you be happy if it didn't come out. It's not like you have to buy it. Others enjoy it, so why should you care if it comes out.

No spoiler, don't worry. The story does leave you hanging, but it also finishes well at the same time. Sort of like the Lord of the Rings books.. the books each end well, but you want to read all of em to get the whole picture from beginning to end.

too right mate I'd be well peeved it there wasn't a Shenmue 3 being developed as we speak
You just can't leave Shenmue 2 without an ending, if Shenmue 3 is the last then so be it just make sure you finish the story Yu Suzuki (although you did say there were 16 chapters in Shenmue, I just want to know how your gonna fit these 16 chapters on Shenmue 3, if this will be the last outing?)

I have to say there wasn't that much difference in the graphics for the XBOX version, as my friend brought his DC down so we could do a comparison, I bought the XBOX version looking for a well improved version of Shenmue 2 but all I got was a little bit more colour, faster loading times and a bit of smoothing for the characters (but not enough) and thats it I'd think Yu Suzuki would have gone flat-out to improve his greatest creation 'Shenmue' on the XBOX giving the power it has.

Lets see what happens in Shenmue 3, becuz if there ain't no Shenmue 3 I'll be dropping down to Sega and string up Yu Suzuki and start prodding him with a red hot metal prod

I'm playing Shenmue 2 (XBOX) again this time to get all the cut-scenes, it is still a great game
