(RUMOR) - Is Shenmue II Coming to Xbox Live Arcade
A leaked image from Microsofts PartnerNet network (essentially a developers-only Xbox Live used for testing purposes) shows what appears to be strong evidence that Segas Shenmue II is on the way as a downloadable title for the Xbox 360.
Eurogamer reports that "Xbox360Leaker" -- the same person with the same ImageShack account who leaked an image showing Jet Set Radio on the 360 yesterday -- has now leaked a new image (above) showing a game called "Project Berkley II" in the PartnerNet menu. No doubt devoted fans will remember "Project Berkley" was once the codename for Yu Sazukis epic action/adventure/RPG hybrid Shenmue, suggesting this is likely Shenmue II under a similar codename.
While Shenmue II was originally a Dreamcast game, it was released in the United States as a port on the original Xbox, so it wouldnt be too much of a stretch to see a downloadable port on the Xbox 360. But until any kind of confirmation bubbles up, consider this -- like Jet Set Radio -- a rumor for now.
